Our Bookseller says:
“If you are or ever were a public policy major, you’ve probably been encouraged to read Thinking Fast and Slow, the culmination of Daniel Kahneman’s life’s work in the discipline of decision-making and behavior science. I can say with experience that it is worth reading even a small portion of this massive and admittedly dense volume. Kahneman is thorough but engaging as he dives into his theory about the two ways that humans think and make decisions: fast thinking (automatic, instinctual) and slow thinking (deliberate, rational). The implications for this work are wide-ranging: psychology, economics, leadership, teamwork; but especially: how to understand other decision-makers, and how to move an agenda.” – Julia
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.
