  • review: This is a great book to introduce yourself to "thinking in systems" - just like the title says. Other than that, the book can be frustrating if one tries to figure out how to apply it everywhere. At this point, one realises that the book is an introductory course in systems thinking - it will tell what a system is, how to express the functioning of a system, and how to map some real-world events in terms of systems. This is like a first-year college course - you learn things, but you need to get more advanced knowledge before you can apply it masterfully. All that said - excellent book to get started.,
