Description

"Thinking, Fast and Slow" by Daniel Kahneman is a groundbreaking exploration of the dual systems that govern human thought processes. Kahneman, a Nobel Prize-winning psychologist, introduces the concept of two thinking systems: System 1, which operates quickly and intuitively, and System 2, which is deliberate, analytical, and slower. The book delves into the cognitive biases and errors that arise from these systems, impacting decision-making and judgment. Kahneman draws on decades of research to illuminate the psychological intricacies shaping our choices, revealing the systematic errors in reasoning that affect individuals and institutions alike. The book's insights extend to fields such as economics, finance, and public policy, challenging conventional wisdom and prompting readers to reassess their understanding of human decision-making. With its accessible style and compelling examples, "Thinking, Fast and Slow" has become a seminal work in the study of behavioral economics and cognitive psychology, offering valuable insights into the complexities of the human mind.


From the Back Cover

 "An astonishingly rich book: lucid, profound, full of intellectual surprises and self-help value ...urge everyone to buy and read it." - JIM HOLT, The New York Times Book Review.

IN THE INTERNATIONAL BESTSELLER Thinking Fast and slow. Daniel Kahneman, the renowned psychologist and winner of the Noble 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, emotional: system 2 is slower, more deliberative, and more logical. The impact of overconfidence on corporates 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. Winner of the national Academy of Sciences Best Book Award and the Los Angeles Times Book Prize and selected by The New York Times Book Review as one of the ten best books of 2011, Thinking, Fast and Slow is destined to be a classic.
