The phenomenal international bestseller - over 1.5 millions copies sold - that will change the way you make decisions
'A lifetime's worth of wisdom' Steven D. Levitt, co-author of Freakonomics
'There have been many good books on human rationality and irrationality, but only one masterpiece. That masterpiece is Thinking, Fast and Slow' Financial Times
Why is there more chance we'll believe something if it's in a bold type face? Why are judges more likely to deny parole before lunch? Why do we assume a good-looking person will be more competent? The answer lies in the two ways we make choices: fast, intuitive thinking, and slow, rational thinking. This book reveals how our minds are tripped up by error and prejudice (even when we think we are being logical), and gives you practical techniques for slower, smarter thinking. It will enable to you make better decisions at work, at home, and in everything you do.

A thought provoking journey by a master of the field. Kahneman clearly shows the limitations of our capabilities and shows where we should take care in our day-to-day lives. Highly recommended for all decision makers.
A tough read but still interesting
I found it a tough read to be honest. Some of the studies he refers to in the book I have read elsewhere before and were better explained and more entertaining. Although overall still very interesting.
Starts out DULL but does improve
Saw this in a local book shop and decided to get the audio version. I find the reader's voice a tad monotonous and some of the content rather drab but further on it does start to relate more to the real world and how we think.
