    In the last few years two books took me FOREVER to get through The first was Daniel Dennett s Darwin s Dangerous Idea and the second is Kahneman s Thinking, Fast and Slow What caused this What do they have in common Both books explain, in minute detail, simple concepts with immensely far reaching implications, and both have been after the slog the most in

    An unrelentingly tedious book that can be summed up as follows We are irrationally prone to jump to conclusions based on rule of thumb shortcuts to actual reasoning, and in reliance on bad evidence, even though we have the capacity to think our way to better conclusions But we re lazy, so we don t We don t understand statistics, and if we did, we d becautious in ou

    This is a fascinating book Reading this book means not having to read so many others For example, you could avoid having to read, Sway, Blink, Nudge and probably a dozen or so other books on Behavioural Economics And the best part of it is that this is the guy or, at least one half of the two guys who came up with these ideas in the first place I was thinking that perhaps th

    I kind of want to cut this book in half, praise the first part, and stick the second part in some corner to gather dust Not that the second part is bad, mind you the entire book is well written and obviously the product of someone who knows their field There s just a lot of it Thinking, Fast and Slow is kind of like a guest who shows up to your party and then dazzles everyone with an

    If your objective, like it is when one finishes reading a self help book, is to implement what Mr Kahneman has to say in real life and benefit from it, I should warn you, you will be sorely disappointed Believe it or not, in my opinion, I believe Mr Kahneman is telling you exactly that in this book that whether you like it or not, your entire life is guided or may I say decided by two fundament

    Hands down, one of the best books in its genre The book is a lengthy, self conscious and a challenging read but highly recommended if you re interested in why human beings behave the way they behave It s given me so much oh snap, so that s why we re so dumb moments that at this point I don t even want to admit I m a human to any space time traveling race that comes in collision of 21st century Earth.Citi

    Thinking, Fast and Slow is just okay It s being marketed as a book on psychology and economic psychology, in particular for the layperson I m not sure if other laypeople agree, but this wasn t really for me And it s not that the prose is too technical okay, sometimes it is but rather that Kahneman is stuck somewhere between academic technicalities and clear expressive prose Note The rest of this review has been w

    It is very difficult to judge, review or analyze a book that basically challenges the very idea of human Rationalism Are humans perfectly rational This dude, Daniel Kahneman, got a Nobel Prize in Economics for saying they are not An ordinary person might have been treated with glare or a stinging slap if he said that to someone s face We simply don t like being told that we are not very rational and certainly not as intelli

    Whew Wrestled this one down to the ground It s got so much in it I ve got all I can for now I m leaving it out in the living room for now, though for refreshers.The author s aim is to prove to us that we are not rational beings to the extent we think we are, that evolution has seen to that And that being the case, the book outlines what we need to know so as not to mess up decisions like we have been doing like we all do And he s mad

    This book had me laughing and smiling,than many a book described in its blurb as side splittingly funny or something similar because I recognised the cognitive disillusions described in this book as my own and in any case I am the kind of person who if they fall into a good mood wonders if it s due to the pint and the pie that was eaten earlier.In my case the preacher wasn t talking to the choir, but I had been to the church before and enjoyed
