Scott Page: The Model Thinker
I listened to the Farnham Street Podcast the other day (https://overcast.fm/+Ei1CCZm8Q) and the book they were talking about sounded interesting:
Scott Page: The Model Thinker: What You Need to Know to Make Data Work for You, 2018
They talk about different kinds of thinking tools, like when to apply normal distribution, or how to spot complex systems with feedback loops. The last one was particularly interesting. As long as the model someone made doesn't include feedback loops, it will practically be a linear model. That's a nifty heuristic for ... well ... whenever you talk with someone about complex system modelling. Which makes me wonder what you'd do with all this in the end
Does anybody here know the book? Can you recommend it? What was it useful for?
