Review Super Thinking

Super ThinkingYou can just read Super Thinking a fun illustrated guide to every mental model you could possibly need How can mental models help you Well here are just a few examples • If you've ever been overwhelmed by a to do list that's grown too long maybe you need the Eisenhower Decision Matrix to help you prioritize • Use the Whys model to better understand people's motivations or get to the root cause of a problem • Before concluding that your colleague who messes up your projects is out to sabotage you consider Hanlon's Razor for an alternative explanatio. Awesome bookThe authors apparently wrote the book for themselves which makes it even useful and valuableI would have personally used even picturesgraphs to explain and compare ideasbehaviorA book worth returning to

I picked this up for two reasons1 I've read Gabriel's first book Traction and found it immensely helpful2 I'm a big fan of mental models Have read Robert Cialdini Dan Kahnemann Dan Ariely Malcolm Gladwell Richard Thaler a bunch of others including being a regular at Farnam Street though haven't been able to consistently use than a handful of themSo picking a book being portrayed as a single treasure trove from a validated author seemed like a no brainer But I'd have to say I'm not extremely impressed by itFirst of all it's extremely difficult to weave all the mental models into a story like format rather than just listing all of them out I can totally understand the amount of work that must have gone into this to infuse storytelling and make it as relatable as possible for readers to understand And for that I really appreciate the authors However following were some of the things I didn't like1 I'm not sure if all the mental models that were talked about in this are actually mental models in reality Cases in point barriers to entry exit appeasement technology adoption life cycle etc In my view they're actual literal concepts terms and I'm not sure in what respect are they being referred to as mental models2 Given that mental models is still not an extremely prevalent thing and is still finding its roots in the lower echelons of the society general populace I think a lot of the common and predominant mental models covered in the book should have found explanations Case in point Confirmation biasI mean if I'm expected to apply these mental models in my life then surely a couple of paragraphs will not suffice to drive home the point3 I'm not sure how much efforts the authors had put in to de jargonise the concepts I mean at a few places I even found myself who's always interested in the subject just aimlessly slogging through the pages to get over it4 I also think people who're new to the world of mental models might find it difficult to get a hold of the concepts in this book because of the above factors Because when you're talking technical not easy to understand things you cannot expect to just touch over them and expect people to get it5 And surprising part is even with the lack of the above things I felt the book still was unnecessarily lengthy I mean it took me close to a month to wrap it up which is usually never the case And definitely not for a book of 300 odd pagesAnd finally not so much as a concern for readers but for authors I think the title of the book is really off putting to the general public And it's not my opinion It's what I observed from the expressions and receptiveness of people when they came to know that I'm reading a book called Super Thinking
