This book alternately amazes you at the speed and complexity of the human mind, and terrifies you at how flawed our thinking can be. I found this book very useful and I already used it to give a cab driver a tip on when to go to city hall to contest something (basically after they have recently had breakfast or lunch). I don't think critical thinking is taught enough at school or at home, and this book is an important contribution to that topic from one of our best thinkers.

Kahneman (and Tversky) are to behavioral economics what Napoleon Hill was to the psychology personal achievement – founding fathers. This book establishes the foundation of modern behavioral economics for generations to come, and is the to-go-to reference for anyone who wants a better understanding of consumer behavior and decision-,making process. This book was very revealing and helpful to me, and I referenced it a few times in my book – Money Anxiety – how financial anxiety impacts consumer behavior and the economy, which is also on Google Play

This books creates a whole new way of thinking about Decisions we make and what makes us as humans, so human. it is relevant to anyone who is interested in the human thinking machine. Specifically this is a must for professionals in the area of Marketing and Product Management. This book explains many of the things we know, but also helps us become better at what we do.

This book succeeds in instilling an awareness of the many biases and heuristics that lead to errors of judgments and poor decision-making. It should be made required reading for anyone; economists, libertarians, or whoever, who still holds fast to the notion that people make decisions rationally. Above all, Thinking, Fast and Slow is a highly enjoyable and informative read for anyone wanting insight into the human mind.

Excellent

This is another must-read as it provides a wonderful overview of where our tendencies lead us astray. I was particularly interested in the discussion about planning fallacies since a lot of my work involved planning how long it will take to complete a task. I will be making good user of outside estimates, especially when something looks easy that I have not done before!
