Daniel Kahneman, recipient of the Nobel Prize in Economic Sciences for his seminal work in psychology challenging the rational model of judgment and decision making, is one of the world's most important thinkers. His ideas have had a profound impact on many fields-including business, medicine, and politics-but until now, he has never brought together his many years of research in one book. In Thinking, Fast and Slow, Kahneman takes us on a groundbreaking tour of the mind and explains the two systems that drive the way we think and make choices. One system is fast, intuitive, and emotional; the other is slower, more deliberative, and more logical. Kahneman exposes the extraordinary capabilities-and also the faults and biases-of fast thinking, and reveals the pervasive influence of intuitive impressions on our thoughts and behaviour.

He shows us how our choices are made and how we can make decisions more consciously. Because you are a psychologist. Or because you are not.
It was the winner of the National Academies Communication Award for best creative work that helps the public understanding of topics in behavioral science , engineering and medicine. The book summarizes research that Kahneman conducted over decades, often in collaboration with Amos Tversky. The integrity of this research has been called into question in the midst of the psychological replication crisis. The main thesis is that of a dichotomy between two modes of thought : "System 1" is fast, instinctive and emotional ; "System 2" is slower, more deliberative , and more logical. From framing choices to people's tendency to replace a difficult question with one which is easy to answer, the book summarizes several decades of research to suggest that people have too much confidence in human judgement. The book also shares many insights from Kahneman's work with the Israel Defense Forces and with the various departments and collaborators that have contributed to his education as a researcher.
This is a great read for anyone who is interested in psychology and processes of thought. After studying psychology and receiving his bachelors, Kahneman was enlisted in the Israeli defence force, working primarily in the psychology department. Kahneman later moved to America to complete his Ph. Part one will examine the two different systems of thought. The second part will discuss heuristics and biases before we move onto part three and overconfidence. Part four will summarise different choices and finally, part five will discuss the concept of two selves.
The mental work that produces impressions, intuitions, and many decisions goes on in silence in our mind. Much of the discussion in this book is about biases of.
In this book, Kahneman describes the ways in which we think or make decisions — and how those ways work against and with one another. System 1 thinking is better described as our intuition, which relies on subconscious information and prior experience to make a decision. System 2 is logical and deliberate, and it requires careful consideration of reasonable information to make a decision.
