We’re often told that humans make bad decisions and that more data is better.
But this is backwards: people are good at decisions precisely because we use mental models and can envision new realities outside of data.

Today’s book shows us how. We welcome the author of Framers: Make Better Decisions In The Age of Big Data Kenneth Cukier.
