Messy: The Power of Disorder to Transform our Lives – Tim Harford

Thoughts: I’m typing this up a while after having read the book, so I remember not too much of the experience of reading it. Lots of useful stuff, though; a good foil to Levitin’s The Organized Mind.

(The notes below are not a summary of the book, but rather raw notes - whatever I thought, at the time, might be worth remembering. I read this as an e-book, so page numbers are as they appeared in the app I used, Libby.)
