The Big Book Of Mental Models


I enjoyed this book a lot more than [You Are Not So Smart](). It covers similar (albeit broader) source material: mental models AND logical fallacies. Some chapters were better than others, including ‘Becoming One With Nature’ (Chapter 4), ‘Unlocking People’s Potential’ (Chapter 8), and ‘Flex Your Market Power’ (Chapter 9). These chapters focused on specific admonitions, where the others seemed closer to sentences vaguely chained together by the relation of their referenced models. Those will be still be useful as a reference, however.
