I've actually been trying to be more aware of my mental models in the last few years. It has dramatically altered the way I look at things and the way I think about things. Some of my positions on hot political topics have been dramatically changed and my predilection for hostile argument has gone down. Overall, I'd say my life is much more peaceful as a result. Still, this is the sort of thing you can't afford to get complacent about,

Very simplistic take on the core issues of any big organization. An organization is, in many ways, a living organism; while being a part of the whole how one must challenge the status-quo of preconceived notions, conformity bias, groupthink and communication pitfalls is what this book is about.

A must read (more importantly understand) for new-era leaders.

Had to read this for one of my Master's classes. It is pretty interesting and equally ridiculous.

My boyfriend has to read this book for one of his classes and I want to read it because it's written in a fictional sort of way with illustrations and all! Haha - it looks fun!
