  1. I got this book because we develop systems for patient compliance, the reviews were high and i was eager to learn from such an expert of high acclaim In fact the book is a superficial collection of high level ideas with little to no added value or insights The book is a spectacular example of what Feynman called cargo science Do meaningful not just quantifiable Indeed The book is also heavily influenced by the author s environmental agenda which should be disturbing to anyone with an engineering [...]


  2. I like the topic I care a lot about the topic I work primarily in fields related to this About 70% of the economic examples in the book are wrong because the ahthor doesn t understand the system and feedback systems in play In a book about systems theory, this is mostly inexcusable.


  3. There are a few books that encapsulate a way of thinking so simply, so clearly and so compellingly that I find myself giving little kisses of delight to the cover I read this on a Kindle, so this resulted in quite a lot of smudging.I am not a student of systems or someone who ever spent much time thinking about systems at all, although, like practically everybody, my life and work are all about either creating, maintaining, supporting, or surviving various systems I heard about this book from a [...]


  4. Let me guess the author probably had 50 pages of really cool, thought provoking material, but the editor went all, like, you can t publish a 50 page book, go make it 200 pages , and as a result, we see things like 3 repetitive examples where 1 would suffice, and then instead of saying and the converse is true , we spend another paragraph just negating the previous one And sometimes you do bump into really important concept in all this, so I had to dig through this carefully in order to avoid mis [...]


  5. I m about half way through, but the content doesn t seem to be getting much richer The systems thinking presented in the book so far is fairly basic If you ve had good networking and computer systems classes you would have covered most of this material Also, the author seems to have a leftist political ax to grind with the pedagogically simplistic examples she chooses With her credentials, I would have liked a neutral and counter intuitive examples


  6. I wish there was a higher rating of 5 stars This book so simply and elegantly explains any and every problem, scenario, and reality out there Once you read and understand it which is so easy because meadows writes so straightforward and beautifully you can t unsee all of the systems traps and levers that are being used in the real world everyday Life changing read for me I am so glad that I read it for a class of mine.


  7. I was trained as a nuclear plant operator As such, my whole career has dealt with system thinking But those systems were physical, mechanical, electrical and analog digital controls As my career advanced I became involved with management of large scale projects I read The Goal by Eliyahu Goldratt and realized organizations like companies are people systems That led me to expand my understanding of systems That s why I picked up this book It didn t disappoint Although a number of examples are dat [...]


  8. This is a great book, laid out in very understandable terms for newcomers to systems thinking It really is a new way of look at the world and can even increase your level of consciousness through getting you to view the bigger picture in all walks of life You ll be less judgemental and have a much broader scope with your thinking I would have loved to have seen amusing examples of systems throughout, like one explaining the quantity of semen in a porn actors testicles, instead of ones about car [...]


  9. I had always considered myself to be a system thinker and had read many books on artificial life, chaos theory etc.But until now there was no book that I had read that formed a basis of how systems, in general, tied together This book provides that glue It covers a lot of ground and provides solid examples of how system thinking can, quite literally, change the world It covers areas such as oil production, politics, user of language and drug addiction in ways that are cohesive and informative It [...]
