THINK FOR YOURSELF is the newest book from Vikram Mansharamani. Vikram recommends a balanced approach to dealing with experts and technologies that neither dismisses nor blindly defers to them. The key, he suggests, is for us to retain control but tap into expertise as needed. The book is being described as “an indispensable guide for those looking to restore self-reliant thinking in a data-driven and technology-dependent yet overwhelmingly uncertain world.”
