Most people find System Thinking very difficult to understand and follow. Barring a few most writings on System Thinking are very difficult to comprehend since it a completely different way to view the world and its happenings.
In that respect this book is a notable exception. It is simple yet cogent. The most difficult principles are laid bare in the simplest possible manner.
It reads almost like an on-going dialogue between the reader and the author. Through her writing a wonderful relationship between the author and the reader is created, which is the essence of System Thinking.
It is not only serves as a Primer for anyone even mildly interested in the subject but also as a textbook for advanced practitioners since the subject can't be told any simpler.
Highly recommend a read.
