    Hey Laura, this top ten list is fantastic. I liked the Black Swan even though it took me a while to get through it, not the best writing. However, the message I took from the book was extremely valuable, it tells you to basically expect the unexpected. There, Rosebud. You can post this to our site http://www.toptentopten.com/ and link back to your site. We are trying to create a directory for top ten lists where people can find your site. The coolest feature is you can let other people vote on the rankings of your list.
