Review: The Scout Mindset, by Julia Galef

If you want to read this book, message me your address and I will send you a copy. If I could make every single person in the world read this book, I would.

“The Scout Mindset” is a book about how to be right more often. I don’t mean this in the sense of “how to convince people you’re right more often,” or “how to find new correct information.” There is a bunch of stuff you think right now that is straight up cookeydooks wrong, and this book is designed to help you get rid of some of those beliefs. The author argues that being right more often will probably make you a happier and more effective person, and then gives you some easy tools for doing that. It’s very readable, written in a conversational tone, interspersed with anecdotes that I got invested in. It’s short too, so it isn’t a huge time commitment. If you like the idea of being able to see the world a little more clearly, go read it.
