Description

Thirty practical and applicable guidelines to think smarter, faster, and with expert insight (even if you aren’t one).

 Mental models are like giving a treasure map to someone lost in the woods. They provide instant understanding, context, and most importantly, a path to the end destination. Now imagine having such a map for all problems and decisions in your life.

Battle information overwhelm, focus on what really matters, and make complex decisions with speed and confidence.

Mental Models: 30 Thinking Tools sheds light on true intelligence: It’s not about knowledge and knowing the capitals of all the countries in the world. It’s about how you think, and each mental model is a specific framework on how to think smart and with insight. You can approach the world by trying to analyze each piece of information separately, or you can learn mental models that do the work for you.

Learn how billionaires/CEOs, Olympic athletes, and scientists think differently and avoid mistakes.

Peter Hollins has studied psychology and peak human performance for over a dozen years, and is a best-selling author. He has worked with a multitude of individuals to unlock their potential and path towards success. His writing draws on his academic, coaching, and research experience.

Very useful mental models for entrepreneurs

This book was a pleasant surprise. I've listened to many books on entrepreneurship and ways to improve your mindset but most of the new ones are a bit more marketing than actual resourceful, this one on the other hand is quite useful and full of models that I can actually use and improve my way of thinking. The narrator's voice is pleasant and manages to captivate you. I believe that in order to remember all the models and be able to actually apply them you'll need to listen the book at least twice or also get the ebook/hard cover to be able to adnotate and bookmark ideas that you want to implement in the near future. I was given this free review copy audiobook at my request and have voluntarily left this review.

A toolkit everyone can benefit from.

Who takes the time to learn how to think? Not many, but everyone should. This book is a quick, well-written treatise on thinking and decision-making. Each method is defined in enough detail to either give you the steps necessary to employ the method or pique your interest to find out more about it. There were several topics that I bookmarked and shared with my coworkers.

Incredibly informative

I honestly didn't have a lot of expectations for this book, but it proved to be a wealth of information. Some of the techniques taught herein are practically self evident, but others are far less so. Some of it is simple if you just think about what you're doing, while others are things I never would have considered on my own. For anyone who wants to elevate their analytical mind and separate themselves from the crowd, this book is worth its weight in gold.

Basic Approaches to Decision-Making

Many of the mental models are basic, such as: * Important tasks/urgent tasks * Reversible decisions/irreversible decisions * Satisficer/maximizer * Minimize regrets * Truth (follow the evidence) * Peer review * Pareto Principle * Right actions/easy actions

I liked it, but it is very similar to other books

The narrator is great, and I like to listen to these kind of books when exercising / walking around. I had listen to a very similar book just recently, so it felt like deja-vu on some parts of this book, however with some of those interesting books I do not mind listening it again & it definitely has some good concepts to listen for twice. I was given this free review copy audiobook at my request and have voluntarily left this review.

The good not outweighed by the bad.

Some good mental models but weak examples. Some examples were downright confusing or wrong. Good premise for a book but poor execution.

Verbose and cliché

While this book provides an overview of a variety of mental models it surrounds the models with redundant, flowery, cliche descriptions. The summary offered with each chapter is the most useful part of the book.

Useful material

I was provided this book as an arc. And, it had some useful information but was very dry. At times repetitive. I’m sure listeners could find some useful information here though.

I learned something new from this book and I will definitely apply everything I have read into practice. It was worth the read.

Just plain wrong

Some of the models here were so wildly mischaracterized that I wonder how this book got past review. I couldn’t finish.

Everyone should read this a couple times a year.

I really liked this book. Taking these 30 mental models to heart will most certainly improve your quality of life. Its a lot to take in and wrap your mind around, so a couple reads or sone note taking will definitely benefit you. The Narrator was good.
