Publisher's Summary

You want to make better decisions. You want to be right more of the time professionally and personally. However, being more right consistently is a hard problem because the world is such a complex, evolving place. How do you navigate this complexity? 

Mental models are decision-making tools that guide our perception of the world and our behaviour in it. They help us understand life, make decisions and solve problems. The best models help us make intelligent investments, develop groundbreaking technologies and even travel to outer space.   

Building on our knowledge of well-known models such as the Bandwagon Effect or Paradigm Shift and introducing us to the lesser known like the Eisenhower Matrix or the Boiling Frog Symbol, this indispensable audiobook distils the most effective mental models into a single digestible volume. 

It will make even the most complex models accessible and engaging to enable you to make better, more informed decisions in every part of your life.

PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying reference material will be available in your Library section along with the audio on our Desktop Site.

nice book, with wide verity of examples

I thought if little more depth was included it would have been good , so pointers to self help examples would have been good

Not just mental models, it much much more.

While I started this book with understanding various mental models, I realise this book will help me in my business, personal matters along with my development in finances and so many other aspects of professional and personal life. Well crafted.
The models have been beautifully positioned to talk about critical developmental areas. Well done!

Good book

Covers basic ideas from a wide area of diciplines. In the end it is a bit basic.

Top class curated collection of models

I’ve made a career out of turning teams and companies around. This is an extraordinary collection of the most powerful models that I have spent decades searching out.

Needs to be taught in schools

But probably never will be.
This book has hundreds of mental models, I'll have to read it again.
It was very well constructed and keep me interested throughout.

I found the explanations and advice very helpful too.

I reccomend reading this with at least one other person so you can dicuss it.

Extremely basic

This book is packed with a lot of very basic knowledge. It's probably good for students but that would be about it.

I wish this was a compulsory textbook in school

I haven't even finished listening to it, but already this book deserves a high rating review. Mental models have never been something I had considered being of such importance. But, after understanding the concept of what Super Thinking was about from the Marketing Over Coffee podcast, it sounded all so very interesting. Now I find myself recognising different models as things occur in my life, which helps me understand situations better and respond accordingly. This is a book I will probably listen to several times over the coming years because it is so useful.

I wish I'd been taught this at school

Understanding and applying mental models is key in having a beautiful mind. A must for people who care how to think more than what to think.

Not terribly engaging

Some interesting ideas presented here, but ultimately a bit dry and a struggle to finish. Tried to cover too much ground going over lots of ideas from many other people that you likely would have heard already.
