In his mega bestseller, Thinking, Fast and Slow, Daniel Kahneman, world-famous psychologist and winner of the Nobel Prize in Economics, takes us on a groundbreaking tour of the mind and explains the two systems that drive the way we think.

System 1 is fast, intuitive, and emotional; System 2 is slower, more deliberative, and more logical. The impact of overconfidence on corporate strategies, the difficulties of predicting what will make us happy in the future, the profound effect of cognitive biases on everything from playing the stock market to planning our next vacation—each of these can be understood only by knowing how the two systems shape our judgments and decisions.

Engaging the reader in a lively conversation about how we think, 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 business and our personal lives—and how we can use different techniques to guard against the mental glitches that often get us into trouble. Topping bestseller lists for almost ten years, Thinking, Fast and Slow is a contemporary classic, an essential book that has changed the lives of millions of readers.

Thinking,Fast and Slow

I appreciate the effort it took to write this book.I also appreciate
the effort it took for me to read it . I am very glad I did. It is not
often that you come to understand the why of decisions you have made.
This book gave me a better view of the world I live in.

Wonderful book. Full of insights into a number of aspects of psychology. Makes it quite clear why models of the economy based on rational actors can't be right. I have to reread it to try to turn the many ways humans tend to make mistakes in thinking into a coherent whole.

Overpriced if your already

think in the ideal ways and furthermore are able to assess that in your life at any given time. So I think it's like how there's a melody to everything and someone might buy this book trying to find the harmony but the ones who already hear it and even found a way to sing along will see that's it's the chords we naturally are aware of and it's a melody we can hear our minds play along to everything. But the ones who hear this book and chorus but fail to find notes that match or clash will end up tortured by song when they fail to find a way to sing along.
