Everything in nature evolves by trial and error.
We cannot avoid this fundamental method of natural evolution, but our human advantage is that we can think about and learn from the errors before trying again.
You will see throughout the book how successful thinking combines sharp analyses of new information with broad analogies to existing knowledge.
The authors use real-life examples to show:
—How thinking can avoid overgeneralization traps.
—How to create new knowledge by trial-and-error thinking.
—How to reduce personal risk and maximize benefits by collective application of the trial-and-error method.
It becomes obvious why machine learning and automatic actions cannot replace human intelligence and decision making!
