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.
I feel like I must have read a different book to everyone else. Yes there's lots of 'names for ways of thinking' such as the example that sticks with me: victim blaming, then an explanation of what that means and why you shouldn't do it. Okay but.. so that's one of my "400" mental models? Who needs that explaining? A lot of the concepts are obvious but explained and then off on a tangent to talk about them, supply statistics on the topic etc... but we're not trying to learn about those subjects, we're trying to learn mental models. I got about 25% through. Maybe as a reference it would be okay but not a book to read in it's entirety for me.
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 more insights into how they had deployed some of these in building Duck Duck Go for example.
A well written, succinct and useful collection of ideas about business, life, success and happiness all encapsulated in the mental model of “mental models” After getting half way I found it a little repetitive, but struggled to the end and continued to learn some things. If you are already far along in your career, or in your thinking, much of this will be familiar, but it’s still a useful synthesis of lots of things that you should know, or had forgotten that you did. This book should certainly be on the virtual bookshelf of everyone who is just leaving school or college or just starting out in buisness or adult life.
This is a fast-paced and easy to read journey through various mental models that you will find useful in daily life. You will certainly be familiar with many of the concepts in the book, but there are many hidden gems, and the author draws from a relatively wide array of disciplines (aside: though perhaps a little too much on statistics, the discussion of type II errors etc was excessive). There will of course be many 'mental' ideas that are missing, but plenty here for the curious reader.
This book has the potential to change you as a person. If you haven't come across most of the material before, it will be eye-opening. If you have, it is phenomenally useful to have it all in one place. Brilliant book.
Definitely a great introduction to the concept of mental models, and to quite a big selection of them as well. It's up to you to then do your research if you want to go more in depth into any of these, but this will be a great starting off point. Helpfully organised into sections, it makes for a decent, informative read.
