Definitely an underrated book. This book resonates with me so well by starting with WEF’s Future of Jobs reports that I paid a lot of attention to. I have spent time developing the skills “of the future” with the lack of connection between them, from the TRIZ method, systems thinking to critical thinking, problem solving to decision making by multi-criteria method and heuristics.

I have never seen anyone put those skills into a coherent and convincing view like this author.

An excellent read for anyone trying to understand their own decision-making thinking and past behaviors. Just enough technical/scientific references and case studies to engender trust in the logic which flows easily. A powerful reminder to actively engage with oneself... without losing perspective that you’re human after all. Michael Nicholas has certainly made a contribution to my journey towards increased self-awareness . A keeper.

The main character of Cheers was a womanizing ex-baseball player who possessed a little black book. Inside his little black book were the answers to all his problems, which were the pho

This is an excellent book on what influences us and how we can better approach any situation. I was happy to find so many unexpected topics covered, including conditioning behaviors, accelerated learning, rationality, mindset, and the importance and need for intentional attention.

Explore how essential creativity is and how to engage it. Learn to look at yourself and be vulnerable in order to condition new and better habits. Go from something "making you mad” to “I am angry”. Know the difference
