The Black Swan: The Impact of the Highly Improbable is a New York Times bestseller book on philosophy/sociology written by Nassim Nicholas Taleb. Covering subjects relating to knowledge, aesthetics, and ways of life, the book offers an extended discussion on the black swan theory: the extreme impact of certain kinds of rare and unpredictable events (outliers) and humans' tendency to find simplistic explanations for these events retrospectively.

In The Black Swan, there is an extensive discussion on a black swan as an event that is highly improbable based on these three principal characteristics: it is unpredictable, it creates a massive impact, and it leads us, after the fact, to devise an explanation to make it appear less random and more predictable than it actually is. According to Taleb, black swans lie behind almost everything in our world history. Included as the examples of black swans are the beyond belief success of Google and the tragic 9/11 attack.
