Major New York Times bestseller Winner of the National Academy of Sciences Best Book Award in 2012 Selected by the New York Times Book Review as one of the ten best books of 2011 A Globe and Mail Best Books of the Year 2011 Title One of The Economist's 2011 Books of the Year One of The Wall Street Journal's Best Nonfiction Books of the Year 2011 2013 Presidential Medal of Freedom Recipient Kahneman's work with Amos Tversky is the subject of Michael Lewis's The Undoing Project: A Friendship That Changed Our Minds In his mega bestseller, Thinking, Fast and Slow, Daniel Kahneman, the renowned psychologist and winner of the Nobel Prize in Economics, takes us on a groundbreaking tour of the mind and explains the two systems that drive the way we think. System 1 is fast, intuitive, and emotional; System 2 is slower, more deliberative, and more logical. The impact of overconfidence on corporate strategies, the difficulties of predicting what will make us happy in the future, the profound effect of cognitive biases on everything from playing the stock market to planning our next vacation—each of these can be understood only by knowing how the two systems shape our judgments and decisions. Engaging the reader in a lively conversation about how we think, Kahneman reveals where we can and cannot trust our intuitions and how we can tap into the benefits of slow thinking. He offers practical and enlightening insights into how choices are made in both our business and our personal lives—and how we can use different techniques to guard against the mental glitches that often get us into trouble. Winner of the National Academy of Sciences Best Book Award and the Los Angeles Times Book Prize and selected by The New York Times Book Review as one of the ten best books of 2011, Thinking, Fast and Slow is destined to be a classic.

I was skimming through the first couple of pages as it showcased statistics and data until the picture became clear. Strange it is how our mind works. Mind over matter- this message has been conveyed throughout the book and the author had substantiated it with proven data as well. The truest prison of a man is his own mind. Don’t try to control it, no one ever can. You have let all the emotions come and flow through you. Your mind is like the vast ocean. In order to reach the calmness you need to over come the storm. Without one, the other won’t exist. The author instill this idea again and again. The author is questioning the way we see ourselves. There may be no other person who had understood how we make decisions/choices in life. One of the greatest and most engaging insights into our own mind and its functioning.

Can't understand lower ratings: one of the most fundamental books on everyday psychology of decision. Life changing: not as behavior but as point of view on why we believe what we believe

The points from this book is important to understand how the two different systems of the brain is functioning. It’s a classic, it has won many awards and I have been recommended this one heaps of times. However, it is too academic in its nature, which is a downside for me.
