    This book should have been a 10 page Article Very repetitive and the many examples elaborated in unnecessary detail aren t always quite apt.

  2. Maxwell Maxwell says:

    I haven t read that many mental models and can t compare it to anything of note but I think it was pretty cool I did learn a lot and I ve tried to apply it since.

    A quick romp through some important tools for thinking with Only four stars because it is so quick Some sections are superficial and some require knowledge of US popular culture and sports personalities but these are tools everyone should know about I had the Kindle edition It worked well but some sidebars were a few pages away from where they were initially referenced I will be reading the next volume in the series.

    Just finished reading Shane s book If you re a reader of Farnham Street Brain Food newsletter, many of the concepts and models covered in this book will be familiar There are quite a number of books around on mental models but I need to point to this one as one that s both well written and readily accessible Looking forward to part two which is due out soon, I believe.

    A fantastic book ,which can make you change the way you view things and interact with people and situations.I enjoyed the beautiful examples from the world of history and science.

    A really cool book I loved each of the models, the stories behind them and how they come together The writing style is fun and fresh, despite the heady ideas There are countless references to other books I would now love to read.I read the ebook version on which had some unusual formatting Due to the size sidebars that probably look amazing in a paper copy feel slightly off where they should be Still fascinating, just be prepared to be enlightened a little out of order.I am excited to apply it as a developer to both code and team dynamics Would recommend to deep thinkers and those wanting to improve their thinking tools.

    Great Idea but I felt that book is underwhelming The ideas are fine but the writing was not particularly compelling The few ideas are useful but lack any real depth.Similarly, the examples are somewhat cliche and appear to be collected from recent magazine articles and youtube clips at least I recognized a lot Moreover, I felt that the ideas were shallow and lacked any real depth Skim it for a few hours on the weekend is all it s worth, unfortunately.

  13. Venki Venki says:

    Recommend this book to anyone wanting to think using Mental Models A very well constructed stories and highlights the different mental models in easy to understand manner Sometimes we already apply some of these techniques without knowing.
