    While the core of this book is useful and the author (a self-made millionaire) is a living proof that his system works, my opinion is that he makes a lousy job at writing, mainly because he doesn't provide practical examples of "the system mindset" he preaches throughout the whole book.The "mindset" sounds almost as if it were metaphysical, even well into chapter 17 the authors states it will be like an epiphany when it finally hits you, and in the final chapter he even compares it with the movie The Matrix where the hero finally understands how the world really works (I'm not kidding).What I mean is, usually when authors try to explain new concepts in nonfiction, they follow the structure: (1) Story, (2) Explaining general Idea (linked to the story), (3) one or two practical examples of how to use this concept. This book focuses ONLY in the "explaining the general idea" phase through ALL of its chapters, and the links with the documents (supposedly, with practical examples) you "can find" in the author's website are broken as of this writing. The documents related to his other book on the same topic are about random stuff like a step-by-step process on how to print a 3D plant (yes, a 3D plant) or how to answer a main office line.I gave the book 3 stars because it actually has some useful insights scattered through the book that are good, but overall, the book feels more like a kind of a compilation of related blog posts than a book.

    I was greatly anticipating this book after reading Sam Carpenter's first book (Work the System) twice. Work the System is a great read, even for someone with a corporate job rather than a small business owner/entrepreneur. (You can get it for free at Workthesystem.com, just as this one is available at thesystemsmindset.com)This book never really gets off the ground. Carpenter restates his central principle many times, and it reads like a series of blog posts rather than a book. Each chapter pretty much stands alone, and a lot of them are repetitive. Overall, my recommendation is to read Work the System and skip this one.

    Not the best written book in the world, but the underlying ideas are useful.

    Good ideas, but his earlier book explains them a lot better.

    I am so happy to have read this book " The Systems Mindset",managing the machinery of your life by Sam Carpenter which i won on goodreads first reads for an honest review.I found so many wonderful things about this book that i just cant put them all here.the most important aspect of this book is the understanding of what and how to learn to manage the controllable parts of ones life.I would have like it if the author made this book more into a workbook an had more questions for the reader.there are more questions to ask of yourself while reading this book that it would have made it better into a workbook format.I cant wait to read this one again.If you like to motivate yourself to be a better person and gain knowledge then this book is for you...

    Received the paperback version as a Goodreads Giveaway, also downloaded the eBook at http://www.thesystemsmindset.com Refreshingly optimistic. I liked it and will utilize the principles. 'The Systems Mindset' espouses the adoption of a functionally deterministic “outside and slightly elevated” viewpoint of your world. Sam Carpenter calls this “getting it.” It’s simple, analyze the systems in your life. Action #1 leads to #2, #3,,, to outcome N. Then refine the processes to make them efficiently produce desired outcomes. Read the book.

    Grab a cup of your favorite beverage and sit down with a man who has lived his life. Pick up some wisdom as he tells you what he knows, and move on to bigger and better things. This book is well-written, with short chapters that don't meander like most books of this genre. Short and to the point, this book covers the basics of using procedural thinking in everyday life.

    Interesting, practical, no nonsense, pragmatic approach to demystifying or taking the emotion out of and taking charge of the systems in our lives. It goes a little too far in some places becoming more reductionistic/mechanistic in terms of ethics and our connectedness at a universal level.

    I think is a subjective perspective of the world we live. It has some quotes you can reflex about it and try to put it on march at your daily life.

    I think it is not as inspiring as it could be. Nevertheless, I do not regret reading this book.

    Found this an interesting book on adapting a mechanical approach to life and viewing the world not in rose tinted glasses but by using the physics of life.

    Just seems like one long ramble. Very few actionable points. God is mentioned far too much. Avoid this one and read his other book
