In case you'd like a leg up on the ERE book;

Post by FBeyer » Mon Jul 09, 2018 9:14 am

Andy Hunt wrote Pragmatic Thinking & Learning; Refactor your wetware.

Among other things the book covers: Dreyfus levels, MBTI-as-an-entry point-to-negotiation, skill diversification, content production over theory acquisition, and good learning strategies. No matter what page I flipped to it just screamed ERE to me. I can't tell if these two books are strongly causally related or merely correlated. None the less: if you had a hard time reading the ERE book, Pragmatic Thinking is a very good introduction to several topics of the ERE book.


Enjoy.

Sounds interesting!

I see that it came out in 2008, but I have never read it/heard about it. Coincidentally, I have been working on something similar (complete with tables and graphs, but no equations yet :-P ) for my next project. I suppose I need to get my hands on it before I reinvent the wheel.

@Fbeyer -- the first 350? Is this going to be the War and Peace of frugality books? :P

This topic is not about my book. Any of you with comments on it can ask whatever you want in my journal where I mention it regularly.
