After a book review in The Guardian of Antifragility by Nassim Nicholas Taleb, that author referred to Runciman as the "second most stupid reviewer" of his works, from more than 1,000 reviewers. The reason is that in his remarks, Runciman completely missed the concept of convexity, the theme of Taleb's book. "There are 607 references to convexity", Taleb wrote.
