If You Only Read One Chapter, This is It!

The Main Sections

The book is grouped into 3 main sections – understanding, identifying, and avoiding Mind-bugs, and it has a section of appendices.

  • Section 1: Understanding Mind-bugs focuses on learning how our internal processes of thoughts, feelings, desires, and decisions work and interact. We cannot avoid mind-bugs unless we recognize what is happening inside ourselves. With this recognition the section then addresses how to improve decisions within corporations and other organizations.
  • Section 2: Identifying Mind-Bugs teaches us to name the mind-bugs so that we learn what to look for. And, we learn to do this without becoming defensive. It provides convenient and easy-to-understand reference guides that can be used immediately without reading the entire book.
  • Section 3: Avoiding Mind-bugs teaches us to how to look for mind-bugs and provides tools and practices for avoiding them. When we do this, we grow in the way we think. And, we reduce the risk of faulty decisions.
  • Appendices: Has an appendix that includes a deeper dive into the underlying research and important charts and tools from throughout the book in one section. Try browsing them; you will likely continue to have “Aha! moments.”
