Richard Meadows has released his book Optionality: How to Survive and Thrive in a Volatile World.
It’s a beautifully written book that synthesises the ideas of many thinkers to argue that the good life is a function of good options.
He covers why having high-quality options is the best proxy for the good life; decision making under uncertainty; using options with capped downside and open upside to build health, wealth, skills, and social capital; risk management; when to deliberately constrain your options; and making meaning in a meaningless universe.
Never have I read something so profound and erudite delivered so lightly. This is a must-read book that you will be talking about for a long time.
