Будет полезно почитать ее людям, которым кажется, что они в болоте. Информация из этой очень простой книги дает возможность выбраться из "Замкнутого круга". Даже представлено немного практических инструментов.

I've first spotted this book almost a year ago, started reading, recommended it to some of my friends and made no progress since then. I consider this of great luck, because I had a chance to read The Art of Critical Decision Taking - essentially it conveys the same idea but in a more thorough manner(i.e. I was able to get the feeling of the idea), with great deal of examples, though from a bit more narrow field. The problem of the book is trying to be universal guide to the topic.

I've learnt a lot of things from this book. It merges the foundations of NLP with systems thinking. Worth reading

Angenehm zu lesender Überblick (für mich). Für Ungeduldige genügt es, die Kapitelzusammenfassungen zu lesen und bei Interesse zurück in das eigentliche Kapitel zu springen. ^.~

I loved this book, This is much better than the Fifth Discipline in terms of clearly explaining the Principles and practice of systems Thinking. It is much more concise too.
