Having tried, with mixed success, to teach students to do systems thinking, I find this book filling a real need -- and not just for those trying to teach systems.

Outsmarting IQ: The Emerging Science of Learnable Intelligence
This author's life's work should be evaluated in the desperate situation we are in now, where stovepipe thinking and budgeting along with numerous data pathologies and information asymmetries has led to the externalization of up to 80% of the costs of anything (Exxon and other oil companies, for example, externalize $12 a gallon in costs to the environment and public--their "profits" are fraudulent). Lacking an appreciation for Whole Systems thinking such as is represented by Buckminster Fuller (e.g. Critical Path) and Russell Lincoln Ackoff (e.g. Turning Learning Right Side Up: Putting Education Back on Track and On Purposeful Systems: An Interdisciplinary Analysis of Individual and Social Behavior as a System of Purposeful Events, we are educating people who cannot break away from doing the wrong things and who allow our elites to continue to loot our commonwealth for selfish short-term purposes.
I have reviewed 80+ books pertaining to education, unfortunately Amazon does not make it possible to access just my reviews just on education (I read in 98 categories) so if you wish to browse my collected reviews on education (general, university, intelligence wealth of networks, intelligence public, etcetera), the only place to do that is Phi Beta Iota the Public Intelligence Blog (all reviews lead back to both the Amazon Page for the book and to my review should you wish to vote or comment).
See especially at Phi Beta Iota <Graphic Four Quadrants> of knowledge (Knowledge Management; Social Networking; Commercial Intelligence/External Research; and Organizational/Collective Intelligence); two books I have published (as will all books we publish, free online also) are:
Collective Intelligence: Creating a Prosperous World at Peace
INTELLIGENCE for EARTH: Clarity, Diversity, Integrity, & Sustainaabilty
Will Durant got it right: the only real revolution is in the mind of man.
