Inhaltsangabe

The old saying goes, "To the man with a hammer, everything looks like a nail". But anyone who has done any kind of project knows a hammer often isn't enough. 

The more tools you have at your disposal, the more likely you'll use the right tool for the job - and get it done right. 

The same is true when it comes to your thinking. The quality of your outcomes depends on the mental models in your head. And most people are going through life with little more than a hammer. 

Until now. 

The Great Mental Models: General Thinking Concepts is the first book in The Great Mental Models series designed to upgrade your thinking with the best, most useful and powerful tools so you always have the right one on hand. 

This volume details nine of the most versatile all-purpose mental models you can use right away to improve your decision making, your productivity, and how clearly you see the world. You will discover what forces govern the universe and how to focus your efforts so you can harness them to your advantage, rather than fight with them or, worse yet, ignore them.

Terrible speaker

I was very interested in the idea of this book, but the terribly monotone and poorly paced reading style made it intolerable to me.

Schwacher Sprecher

Vom Autor gelesen ist nicht unbedingt etwas gutes. Drehbuchschreiber sind ja auch nicht die besten Schauspieler. Die Informationen sind hilfreich aber die langweilige Art des Sprechers fesselt einen nicht.

NOT Recommended as an AUDIO book!!!!!!

Shane did a good job compiling all the advice in a book - HOWEVER I don't recommend it as an audio version. I remember more from reading one of his blog posts than from the entire audio book. not worth, too much information you cannot handle as audio book. I'll get it as a Kindle oder paper book.

Great, timeless content, bad performance

I'm an eager reader of Farnam Street blog and the content is top notch. Unfortunately, the performance of the author to read his book is bad. It would be better that a more experienced narrator reads this book.

Save your time...

Only absolutely obvious concepts wrapped in many many words - cannot recommend that to anybody with basic thinking skills.

Edit: Just stumbled over a written summary of the book... Concepts stay quite known/obvious, but reading the summary does a decent job to remind you on some of them you might not use often enough. So my opinion is not as harsh now, as it was before. Go for a summary of the book or the book itself but NOT for the audio book.

Excellent book

This was a well-written, beautifully read, succinct, yet rich overview of the mental models that guide (and adulterate) our reasoning. I loved it. Very grateful!

Good Introduction to great principles

The books introduces the readers to various great principles taken from different disciplines and explain how these principles could be applied by an individual to make his/her life better. Each principle is summarized and not explained into detail. In my opinion to make the best use of these principles one should also read the books mentioned by Shane.
