A quick summary

It’s impossible to overstate the importance of the information in this book. Thinking, Fast and Slow sets out the findings of (Nobel Prize winning) research about how the mind works, throwing light on every human endeavour along the way. Knowing how the mind works explains so much – from personal struggles with ourselves and our relationships, to societal and global questions and concerns. The book contains a lot of detail and it’s not a quick, easy read, but it is so illuminating that you’ll want to keep going. And then you’ll want everyone else to read it as well.

Description

Publisher’s description

The phenomenal international bestseller – 2 million 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.
