Daniel Kahneman's pioneering work that tackles questions of intuition and rationality, read by Patrick Egan.

In Thinking, Fast and Slow, Kahneman takes us on a ground-breaking tour of the mind and explains the two systems that drive the way we think and make choices. One system is fast, intuitive, and emotional; the other is slower, more deliberative, and more logical. Kahneman exposes the extraordinary capabilities-and also the faults and biases-of fast thinking, and reveals the pervasive influence of intuitive impressions on our thoughts and behaviour. The importance of properly framing risks, the effects of cognitive biases on how we view others, the dangers of prediction, the right ways to develop skills, the pros and cons of fear and optimism, the difference between our experience and memory of events, the real components of happiness-each of these can be understood only by knowing how the two systems work together to shape our judgments and decisions.

Drawing on a lifetime's experimental experience, Kahneman reveals where we can and cannot trust our intuitions and how we can tap into the benefits of slow thinking. He offers practical and enlightening insights into how choices are made in both our professional and our personal lives-and how we can use different techniques to guard against the mental glitches that often get us into trouble. Thinking, Fast and Slow will transform the way you take decisions and experience the world.

Everyone with a brain should read (or listen) this book.

Highly recommend to everyone outfitted with a brain, no matter the make, model, or year of fabrication.

This book is the “product information booklet”, the “operating instructions manual”, and the “troubleshooting reference guide” that no one has ever received with their new brain.

You won’t find any newly discovered way to reset yourself, defragment memory, increase raw reasoning speed and information storage, upload Wikipedia overnight, or do direct brain-to-brain communication .... but you will discover how your brain works and use that knowledge to your advantage in every day life!

One of the best books for me now

It shows how you can full yourself with science and the way it works in your brain. I’m impressed about the fact that the pain of the idea of losing is bigger than the joy of the possible win based on the same risk of the gamble.
