Thinking Fast and Slow by Daniel Kahneman


Thinking Fast and Slow cover

Those interested in recent developments in cognitive science, behavioral economics, and books by Nobel Prize winners will appreciate this book summary. I’ve boiled down a nearly 500 page book to sixteen pages! It was hard going since I’m a novice in these fields but I want to think clearly and that’s the theme of this book. Kahneman identifies over 40 biases we bring to our decisions that will trip us up if we’re not aware of them. (7/4/17 NOTE: Alert reader Luc found an error regarding the Peak End heuristic. It’s now been corrected. Thank you, Luc).
