"Daniel Kahneman is among the most influential psychologists in history and certainly the most important psychologist alive today. * * * His work has reshaped social psychology, cognitive science, the study of reason and of happiness, and behavioral economics, a field that he and his collaborator Amos Tversky helped to launch. The appearance of Thinking, Fast and Slow is a major event. " (Steven Pinker, Harvard College Professor of Psychology)
Nobel Prize winner Daniel Kahneman's newest book, Thinking, Fast and Slow, is an outstandingly clear and precise study of the 'dual-process model of the brain, our emotional bias and our embedded self-delusion.' A must-read for anyone intrigued about how we make decisions.
Thinking, Fast and Slow - You know how sometimes you make a decision and then immediately think, "Why the hell did I do that?" Well, this book helps to explain how your mind works and, more importantly, how it doesn't work. Kahneman also shows that while we tend to place a lot of confidence in our own judgment, we really shouldn't.
