Summary

The big piano recital is coming up soon, and Rosie feels anything but ready—“captures the down-to-earth rhythms of suburban life, spiced with humor” (Kirkus Reviews). Even though Rosie has only nine fingers, she’s always managed well. Until now. For some reason, she can’t master the piano solo she’s been rehearsing for the annual recital. It’s called “The Dance of the Dinosaurs,” and it’s hard! As the recital draws near, Rosie is desperate. Why does everything seem so much more difficult now? Is it because she misses her father? Since he moved to Milwaukee to take a new job, Rosie’s been miserable, and her mother has been acting kind of strange. Or is Rosie having trouble because she’s worried about the burglar who’s been secretly visiting her house? Then, too, there’s Mary Jean, the new girl in town. Not only is she rich and pretty, but she plays the piano beautifully.   In the weeks before the recital, Rosie fights some hard battles. To her surprise, she discovers that having nine fingers isn’t such a bad thing after all.

    Manipulation is a practice of using words strategically to make people think in your favor. The way you word yourself essentially makes it so that you make the option you don’t want someone to choose seem “negative” and the option you do want them to choose seem “positive”. The way you say it bypasses the conscious mind which will automatically say “no” and teaches the subconscious mind that it is okay to say “yes”. There are two strategies you are about to learn that will maximize the success you have with using manipulative requests to get someone to say yes to you. The first one requires you to start with small requests and work your way up, and the second requires you to ask something large or seemingly outrageous first, and then ask for what you want second. Both of these strategies will ensure that you get maximum success when asking for the things you want or need.

    Mental models are simulations created by the mind to make sense of the world and predict. Metal models are tools the mind uses for thinking and making decisions. Phil Johnson-Laird and Ruth Byrne have proposed the idea of mental models to explain how humans think. 
    Models can be three-dimensional objects that people, like ownership or negation, can rotate in their minds or abstract concepts that cannot be visualized. Mental models can be compared to the blueprint of an architect or the DNA model of a biologist, with the distinction that mental models are abstract images that are intangible, and not physical. Models can be drawn from a wide range of fields: economics, biology, military, engineering, math, etc. For another, a model derived from one domain may serve as an analogy. 
    The theoretical number of mental models is infinite. But some, including Shane Parrish, suggest that you research various mental models to enhance your thought. He has compiled a comprehensive collection of models from different domains that are useful for application to many problem types. Examples include first thought principles: based on fundamental facts rather than referring to what you already know (analogies). 
    A conceptual model is simply a description of the workings of something. We cannot hold all of the world's complexities in our minds, so we use templates to streamline the vast into understandable and organized chunks.
