Publisher's Summary

16 simple yet versatile thinking models to solve problems, make decisions, and engineer insight.

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.

Make complex decisions with speed and confidence; stop being fooled by false alarms.

Mental Models: Versatile Thinking Tools for Complex Situations 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.

Emulate the world's top thinkers (dead and alive).

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.

A great little book

I'm highly pleased by the amount of food and useful information the author was able to fit in this little book. It will be a book that I share with a lot of friends in the near future.
