Thinking, Fast and Slow

Product Description

Imported from USA

Amazon Best Books of the Month, November 2011: Drawing on decades of research in psychology that resulted in a Nobel
Prize in Economic Sciences, Daniel Kahneman takes readers on an exploration of what influences thought example by
example, sometimes with unlikely word pairs like "vomit and banana." System 1 and System 2, the fast and slow types of
thinking, become characters that illustrate the psychology behind things we think we understand but really don't, such
as intuition. Kahneman's transparent and careful treatment of his subject has the potential to change how we think, not
just about thinking, but about how we live our lives. Thinking, Fast and Slow gives deep--and sometimes
frightening--insight about what goes on inside our heads: the psychological basis for reactions, judgments, recognition,
choices, conclusions, and much more. --JoVon Sotak
