The Greate Mental Models

This series is from Shane Parrish of Farnam Street and are 2 volumes of a 5 volume series. I have enjoyed the treatment of mental models in this series better than the others listed. I liked the broad survey of models listed in Super Thinking by Gabriel Weinberg, founder of DuckDuckGo but found it to be just enough to gain interest in it but too light on real-world applicability. This is where Shane’s series shines, taking the theoretical to practical.
