This review is from: Thinking, Fast and Slow (Paperback)
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)This is an absolutely compelling book, that has been reverberating in my mind since I first picked it up. The whole area of decision making is such a fascinating area of study, because it can be applied in so many situations. The fact that as humans we seem to be hard wired to make wrong decisions by over relying on fast thinking intuition is a bit of a revelation to me.
This is a book with serious intent - but presented in an extremely engaging (if a little lengthy) way. You really get a sense of the man behind the science. Kahneman comes across as wise but warm, an expert that is not afraid to show his own fallibility.
This is a seminal book and one that will be referred to for years to come. You must read it!
