Struggling to understand why things went wrong when you did everything right? The Art Of Thinking In Systems can help you with these problems. You think systems thinking is for politicians, and big company CEO’s? Let me tell you this: a small business is a system, your class at school is a system, your family is a system. You are the element of larger systems – your town, your country, the world. These systems have a different dynamic. The more you know about their nature, the more optimal solutions you’ll find to problems related to them. Systems thinking helps you see beyond simple connections, and find strategic solutions considering every actor influencing your problem. The Art Of Thinking In Systems presents the fundamental system archetypes, models, and methods with an application to real life. Know how to use systems thinking at work, in your business, in your relationship, friendships. The book also helps you to see through the hidden pathways of contemporary politics, economics, and education changes. Systems thinking opens new and exciting ways to re-invigorate your world view. It enriches your critical thinking skill, analyzing ability, clears your vision, makes you more logical and rational – just to mention a few benefits. Systems thinking’s aim is not to overcomplicate your thoughts but to find better solutions to your problems. Some things in life can’t be fixed with a simple “you did this so I did that” thinking. By applying conventional thinking to complex problems, we often perpetuate the very problems we try so hard to solve. Learn to think differently to get different results. • Learn about the main elements of systems thinking. • How to apply the best systems thinking ideas, models, and frameworks in your life? • What are the biggest system errors, how to detect and fix them? • How can you improve your romantic relationship with systems thinking? Over the past decades, systems thinking gained an eloquent position in science and research. Complexity, organizational pathways, networks gained more importance in our interconnected world. Just like wars are not fought with two armies standing in opposite of each other on an opened field, the answers to personal problems are more compounded, as well. • Improve your social life understanding the systemic aspects of social networks. • Useful tips how to fix financial fallouts in your business. • See through the systems of health care, education, politics, and global economics. The Art Of Thinking In Systems presents global systems theory with real life examples making it easily understandable and applicable.

You will be able to define your problems more accurately, design solutions more correctly, put together strategic plans, and understand the world – and your place in it - in its chaotic complexity. In our web-wired, interdependent world systems thinking is the key knowledge to escape confusion and misunderstandings. Start developing this precious skill today.

    I normally don't like to compare a book to another book. However, I had read "Thinking in Systems: A Primer," which did a much better job of covering the topic and providing useful examples to understand the concepts in context. Halfway through, I still hadn't learned anything new from this book so I stopped reading it. I normally don't like to compare a book to another book.

    This book seemed really promising in the introductory chapters, but it failed to deliver practical advice or application. It merely stated the high-level view of the topic over and over again.

    Extremely simplistic book that wasted my time. I must have reached all the conclusions that you may derive from this book in high school. It is a somewhat good introduction if youz're totally unfamiliar with system theory, though. Extremely simplistic book that wasted my time.

    Vague. Simple stuffs said in complex way It's probably just me, but this book has taught me nothing. I never knew System Thinking, but that's how I've been thinking through most of my life (that's probably because I'm a Econ major student) 3 stars for tidying up the method that I've been using. No new stuffs learned tho Vague. Simple stuffs said in complex way It's probably just me, but this book has taught me nothing.

    Truly an introduction to Systems Thinking. It whets ones appetite while never going beyond the surface of the concepts. It has real world examples interspersed throughout the book so it really does give the concepts relatability. A quick read that hopefully leads you down the rabbit hole of systems thinking.

    The general idea of the book is to reveal a kind of thinking that we should: - Think of events as a whole, not as an element to see what extent it affects our business, focus on the linking and relationship of departments in a system rather than each itself. - Based on the repeating results of events, we can recognize them as an accidental event or a potential system error to decide deeply digging in or hotfix. The repeating faults may get involved in hidden bigger issues. These are all points that The general idea of the book is to reveal a kind of thinking that we should: - Think of events as a whole, not as an element to see what extent it affects our business, focus on the linking and relationship of departments in a system rather than each itself. - Based on the repeating results of events, we can recognize them as an accidental event or a potential system error to decide deeply digging in or hotfix. The repeating faults may get involved in hidden bigger issues. These are all points that I harvest from the book, which are quite fundamental as people told. But it's worth reading for everyone who has not known of thinking classification before. Taking me for example, I am doing better at logical thinking (straight line) than at multifacet, but this book reinforces me to think in the linkings more frequent. This challenge is not that easy because we must process a lot of information in the head, which takes us time and some nerve cells :).

    Poor Starts off okay introducing some of the key concepts of systems thinking. But overall it’s a pretty shallow book. It doesn’t really teach you much how to think in terms of systems, and the examples it provides are very poor. I’d go looking for a different book if you want to learn about systems thinking.

    Great book! This was a beautiful book. I have been a disorganized person for 20 plus years and I've been trying hard for decades to focus on changing those habits. I was able to "hack" my life while reading this book and was able to come up w great solutions . I would say minimalism and systems thinking have changed my life. Thank you Mr. Schuster ! I recommend this book for everyone . It was complicated at first , but after a few chapters my mind was able to adjust to systems thinking . Now prob Great book! This was a beautiful book.

    Whole than part Steven Schuster has brought considerable emphasis on what we solve will be based on what we look at. In nicely articulated examples, Steven has drawn our attention to the fact that nothing stands alone in this world, that of strength and of weakness: there is a system around it, interconnecting the elements of the system, cause and influence, understanding which can help us solve problems better and more permanently than quick fixes.

    Strong start on an undervalued topic. But then it got vague (the book is really short, so it didn't fully explain or demonstrate the ideas). And then it got political (all the examples were pushing a point of view that ironically was not systems-thinking). Oh well. I'll find another one on this topic. Much to learn here. Too many of us have used that phrase (systems thinking) without actually knowing how to do that well--or even what it is. Strong start on an undervalued topic.

    Good lightweight intro Interesting intro to systems thinking. Draws on a variety of different complex systems for examples, including personal relationships and capitalist history as well as the usual topics of business and government. Could definitely use some more instructions and tips on how to think through building a systems model.

    Purchased this book thinking it would be more about the business or professional world. Surprisingly, it is just what the subtitle says, "everyday life." Not sure it is actually strategic planning. It is more about thinking in terms of systems and how things are connected. The touch into personal life was a good touch.

    good book but not achieve the expectation I like the simplicity of the book, easy for understanding . But it contains more theories than examples so not very practicable. Repeatly emphasize the inportance of system thinking but lack of how to learn this method

    Concise and informative Hadn’t been exposed to the concept of systems thinking before, but this book provided a concise and easily digestible explanation with references to other resources for further study. Worth the investment.

    Good book. If you haven't read anything about systems thinking before, you can start with this. It's like an introductory overview of the subject. Easy to digest and comes with real-world examples to better understand some of the concepts. You'll definitely want more information after reading. Good book.

    Nice idea but This book could have been a lot better and a lot more concise. I also think it is missing the mark in comparing linear thinking and systems thinking. All in all not a bad book.

    Simple but not easy Systems Thinking can lead us to explore potential causes and viable solutions to complex problems. But it takes time to practise this mindset. I’m glad I read this book, it’s going to be a positive change in my life as I get to apply the recommended steps.

    Nice intro to systems thinking Does a good job of codifying the bought processes for thinking of things as systems. Good for people who already think this way, as it’ll connect much more easily

    This is a helpful viewpoint in the problem solving arena. The biggest help I got from it was how easy it is to think too narrowly when solving problems. At 2.0 speed on Audible, it’s a relatively short read.

    It’s short but not informative and fits into someone who wants to learn the definition of system thinking the simplest posible. This book has many repetitive literature. The only reason that allowed me to give 3 stars is it’s simple and smooth text.

    Very basic introduction to systems thinking in distinction from linear or event based thinking. The author mostly stays on the conceptual level with little practical implementation. He does recommend a couple of other books for a fuller treatment of the subject.

    I totally didn't get this. Lots of weird diagrams followed by incredibly obvious observations. Maybe it's deep on a level I couldn't quite follow. I totally didn't get this. Lots of weird diagrams followed by incredibly obvious observations. Maybe it's deep on a level I couldn't quite follow.
