In the international bestseller, Thinking, Fast and Slow, Daniel Kahneman, the renowned psychologist and winner of the Nobel Prize in Economics, takes us on a groundbreaking tour of the mind and explains the 2 systems that drive the way in which we expect. System 1 is fast, intuitive, and emotional; System 2 is slower, more deliberative, and more logical. The affect of overconfidence on corporate strategies, the difficulties of predicting what's going to make us happy at some point, the profound effect of cognitive biases on the whole lot from playing the stock market to planning our next vacation―every of these may also be understood only by knowing how the 2 systems shape our judgments and decisions.
Engaging the reader in a full of life conversation about how we expect, Kahneman reveals where we will and can not accept as true with our intuitions and how we will tap into some great 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 will use different techniques to protect against the mental glitches that frequently get us into trouble. Winner of the National Academy of Sciences Perfect Book Award and the Los Angeles Times Book Prize and selected by The New York Times Book Review as one of the most ten Perfect books of 2011, Thinking, Fast and Slow is destined to be a classic.


Amazon Perfect Books of the Month, November 2011: Drawing on decades of research in psychology that resulted in a Nobel Prize in Economic Sciences, Daniel Kahneman takes readers on an exploration of what influences thought example by example, infrequently with unlikely word pairs like "vomit and banana." System 1 and System 2, the fast and slow varieties of thinking, turn into characters that illustrate the psychology at the back of things we expect we remember but in reality do not, such as intuition. Kahneman's transparent and careful remedy of his subject has the potential to switch how we expect, not with reference to thinking, but about how we are living our lives. Thinking, Fast and Slow gives deep--and infrequently frightening--insight about what goes on inside our heads: the psychological basis for reactions, judgments, recognition, choices, conclusions, and a lot more.  --JoVon Sotak

“This book is a tour de force by an intellectual giant; it is readable, wise, and deep. Buy it fast. Read it slowly and repeatedly. It will change the way you think, on the job, about the world, and in your own life.” ―Richard Thaler, University of Chicago Professor of Economics and co-author of Nudge
