Thinking in Systems: A Primer book cover

This is a really great introduction to systems thinking. Meadows does a great job describing basic system properties, adding examples to illustrate them and then coming back to them later when describing related properties. A lot of the described things - especially at the beginning - almost seem like common sense and suddenly you’re neck deep in systems thinking. I especially liked how she puts systems thinking into relation to being a mindful person. That it’s always a model and not the real world and that we still have to act as morale humans. Highly recommended.
