Book recommendations IV
We are thinking every day. Most of us think at any given moment.
Are our thoughts really clear? Most probably not as we are subject to biases.
This book shines light into which biases and fallacies exist, which errors we make in day-to-day thinking, how we can identify and eradicate them.
One of my favorite bias is information bias. It is the delusion that more information guarantees better decisions.
Albeit this biography has been published in 2015 and is now already over four years old, it contains a lot of useful information on Elon that describe his way of thinking and reasoning about problems.

The Art of War is attributed to Sun Tzu who was a high-ranking military general. He revolutionized warfare tactics as well as strategies.
The book consists of 13 chapters. Each chapter is devoted to one aspect of warfare. The statements are subtle and precise. Some of them will not be understood the first time they are read.
If you read between the lines and ideate about them, you can transition the knowledge and facts into the real world and make them applicable in everyday life.
