A summary

Decisive arguments: includes breakpoints and Goldratt’s ideas about bottlenecks, which mark boundaries between solving a problem and not solving it.

Paths forward: how to find out you’re wrong. This includes how to deal with citation, how to look for ideas that refute your ideas.

Learning practice and mastery: to apply ideas to your life you have to master them so they become automatic for you. People stop learning an idea when they can read it but they can’t apply it easily to everyday life. They would make errors in applying it at a rate so high that it would overwhelm their capacity to correct errors. They also need to be able to judge success or failure with explanations of how you have succeeded or failed.
