    Given the credentials of the author, I expected a structured, well developed theory around mental models However, this is just a or less unstructured collection of 400 ideas, one after the other.Over long passages it feels the author copy pasted from Daniel Kahneman s Thinking Fast and Slow, Rolf Dobelli s The Art of Thinking Clearly, Malcolm Gladwell s Blink, etc for his own notebook and decided to publish it afterwards.Don t expect anything original, but a good light read nevertheless.

  2. Philip Paetz Philip Paetz says:

    There s definitely some useful material in here and probably every reader will learn a few new ideas However, in my opinion the authors forgot about one of the most important mental models when writing this book Focus.Over large sections it just feels like a bullet point list of mental models and metaphors artificially woven together to appear as if there s something like a narrative Unfortunately, often than not I was really missing a coherence in this stirring pot of ideas.I d dare say that cutting out 30% 50% of the mental models and instead honing in on the most important ones 80 20, you ve said it yourself could have provided much value to the reader, especially with regards to retaining all these ideas.Because come on, you really don t need to explain to people what a red line is.

    The book tries to fit over 400 mental model into 320 pages including images Consequently, the reading flow resembles a power point presentation than a book The models are presented as loose bullet points, at most given three paragraphs and rarely exceeding one page.There are useful information in this book, but it reads like a notebook, copy and pasted together from the original sources Thus, I followed the books own advise and, to prevent falling into the sunken cost fallacy, stopped reading.

  4. Mr. Christopher Brind Mr. Christopher Brind says:

    I d been aware of some of the things in this book for a while, but I can tell this is epic collection of mental models collated in to a single book and arranged in logical order is going to have a significant effect on the way I look at life not just work Only a chapter in and I find this book engaging and enjoyable while educational.If you liked the Head First books I would say this is similar in some respects explaining abstract concepts and relating them to the real world in memorable ways.

    The first half of this was interesting and new to me but the second covered models I d seen elsewhere.The summaries at the end of each chapter are really all you need to read as the authors have pulled together a huge collection of ideas from lots of other people but added nothing of their own Maybe, that is all they intended but I d have appreciated some insights into how they had deployed some of these in building Duck Duck Go for example.
