* Concise chapter-by-chapter synopses
* Essential insights and takeaways highlighted
* Illustrative case studies demonstrate Kahneman's groundbreaking research in behavioral economics
In Thinking, Fast and Slow, Daniel Kahneman, best-selling author and recipient of the Nobel Prize in Economics, has compiled his many years of groundbreaking research to offer practical knowledge and insights into how people's minds make decisions. Challenging the standard model of judgment, Kahneman aims to enhance the everyday language about thinking to more accurately discuss, diagnose, and reduce poor judgment.
Thought, Kahneman explains, has two distinct systems: the fast and intuitive System 1, and the slow and effortful System 2. Intuitive decision making is often effective, but in Thinking, Fast and Slow Kahneman highlights situations in which it is unreliable—when decisions require predicting the future and assessing risks.
Presenting a framework for how these two systems impact the mind, Thinking, Fast and Slow reveals the far-reaching impact of cognitive biases—from creating public policy to playing the stock market to increasing personal happiness—and provides tools for applying behavioral economics toward better decision making.
