Monotone delivery of a summarized subject

This is definitely a difficult audiobook to listen through. the narrator delivers what is a mostly dry text in a monotone with next-to-no drama.

The material is a fairly uninteresting summary of concepts better worked by other authors. The examples given are lightweight and could be explored further.

The best part of this book is the conclusion, which is coincidentally the longest. The author gains a bit of passion here and presents more actionable information. I enjoyed some of the laws and principles touched upon and wished the whole audiobook was the same.

I highly recommend this book to all!!

This is one of the few books that I will probably listen 100 times because the information is so valuable. Also, it's packed with information so I'm going to miss some the first time around. I highly recommend this book to those that are interested in the concept of mental models, and especially to those who are business owners.

This is one of the best overviews of mental models

This is one of the best overviews of mental models I have to listen to. The authors provide clear examples of each model with application in a variety of settings that are beyond the initial use of the model. This was my best non-fiction purchase this year.

The book did an excellent job!!

The book did an excellent job by connecting mental models in real-life contexts using a storytelling style rather than an academic listing of all the models. Highly recommended.

The material is concise, brief, and to the point.

I have found mental models to be a very interesting subject. This book is explained in a more flowing fashion. A teen could probably listen to it, but I have been adapting it for my younger daughter. The material is concise, brief, and to the point. For what the book offers, it is dense and packed with great knowledge.
