In the highly anticipated Thinking, Fast and Slow, Kahneman 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, and emotional; System 2 is slower, more deliberative, and more logical. Kahneman exposes the extraordinary capabilities—and also the faults and biases—of fast thinking, and reveals the pervasive influence of intuitive impressions on our thoughts and behavior. The impact of loss aversion and overconfidence on corporate strategies, the difficulties of predicting what will make us happy in the future, the challenges of properly framing risks at work and at home, the profound effect of cognitive biases on everything from playing the stock market to planning the next vacation—each of these can be understood only by knowing how the two systems work together to 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. Thinking, Fast and Slow will transform the way you think about thinking.

I give 5-star reviews to books that I think are well written, fascinating, and important imo. Most of the books I give 4-star reviews to are well written and interesting, but not important per se, like Harry Potter or David McCulluogh’s book on the building of the Panama Canal. No matter how good those books are, they’re not exactly life changing.

I enjoyed this book more than any new book that I’ve read in at least a decade. Probably in two decades.

Thinking, Fast and Slow talks about two distinct modes of thinking – the “fast” intuitive thinking that dominates much of what we do and the slow, effort-demanding, conceptual thinking that we can bring to bear. It does this in amazing, and I suspect original, detail.

Clear definition and exemplifications of two systems, two species and two selves sheds light on various aspects of our decision making and rationality.
I have plan to re read this, few month in the future.

Great insights. Not the easiest read. Don’t read too much at one sitting. I ended up trying lots of the riddles and experiments on friends.

This book took me a while to get through, but after reading it I feel like every minute was worth it. The best part about reading on topics like: behavioral science, psychology, neuroscience, or cognitive science, is that the subject being discussed is quite literally the thing that is reading the book. Notice how I describe myself, or at least my conscious self (my ‘system 2’) as a ‘thing’.
