Nice introduction to systems thinking.

Warning: after reading this book you'll start noticing feedback loops all around you.

It touches on system thinking fundamentals like stocks, flows & feedback loops.
I love how it provides real-life examples (fish population, economic failure modes,...) and offers pointers on how to intervene in failing systems.
I read this work through the eyes of a consultant/software developer and a lot of the advice offered translates directly to my day job. Highly recommended!

Gien Verschatse I always say: "be careful, because you will start seeing systems everywhere you look!" when I recommend the book ;)
