I have recently been reading a book kindly passed on to me, called Antifragile, by Nassim Nicholas Taleb. On the first page of this book, it reads 'Some things benefit from shocks; they thrive and grow when exposed to volatility, randomness, disorder, and stressors; and love adventure, risk and uncertainty. Yet in spite of ubiquity of the phenomenon, there is no word for the exact opposite of fragile. Let's call it antifragile. And antifragility is beyond resilience or robustness'.
