Description

Thinking, Fast and Slow’ is an International Bestseller authored by the eminent economist and psychologist Daniel Kahneman. The book takes the readers on a fascinating journey by dissecting the mind and goes onto explain two distinct systems that affects our way of thinking and making choices. Of these two systems, one is intuitive, emotional yet fast while the other one is more logical and deliberative.

In this book, Kahneman exposes certain extraordinary capabilities of fast thinking along with its flaws and biases and explains how it shapes a person’s behaviour and thoughts.

In simple yet engaging words, the book debates about the importance of taking risks, the proper ways to skill development, dangers of prediction, the cognitive biases and its effect, of people on how they view others and the real component of happiness.

The author also explains how the two systems should be understood properly so as to make proper and correct decisions concerning professional and personal growth that are mostly at conflict with each other.

    Best Money Spent Great Book. I thought this is one of the more useful and thought-provoking books I've read in a long time. this book is the foundation for a lot of new thinking in business and politics recently, and I'm glad I've finally gotten around to reading it. I think it needs a catchier title though.

    Speeds of Thought The book is worth reading for three purposes: a detailed explanation of the two-system perspective on cognitive processes; an extended discussion of how these processes support various mental actions; and a useful model of the productive, collaborating scientist.

    Absolutely brilliant in the analysis of human thinking processes Absolutely brilliant in the analysis of human thinking processes, and all the foibles involved. It points out our arrogance and ignorance when it comes to our fast, instinctive reactions, as opposed to the slow thought processes involved with contemplation and analysis of a situation. The writer won the Nobel Prize, not in the philosophy demonstrated in this book, but in Economics, where he applied what he knew about philosophy.

    Interesting view of the world The book does a very good job at highlighting some of the errors that we make in the process of decision making, and creates general awareness about the contrast of intuitive (fast) thinking and processing intensive (slow) thinking.

    Great but dense read It’s a solid read. Tons to learn. Humbling and eye opening. It’s a serious read but worth the effort
