Publisher's Summary

Brought to you by Penguin.

Daniel Kahneman's pioneering work that tackles questions of intuition and rationality, read by Patrick Egan.

In Thinking, Fast and Slow, Kahneman takes us on a ground-breaking 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. The importance of properly framing risks, the effects of cognitive biases on how we view others, the dangers of prediction, the right ways to develop skills, the pros and cons of fear and optimism, the difference between our experience and memory of events, the real components of happiness-each of these can be understood only by knowing how the two systems work together to shape our judgements and decisions.

Drawing on a lifetime's experimental experience, 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 professional and our personal lives-and how we can use different techniques to guard against the mental glitches that often get us into trouble. Thinking, Fast and Slow will transform the way you take decisions and experience the world.

Critic Reviews

"There have been many good books on human rationality and irrationality, but only one masterpiece. That masterpiece is Daniel Kahneman's Thinking, Fast and Slow. Kahneman, a winner of the Nobel Prize for economics, distils a lifetime of research into an encyclopedic coverage of both the surprising miracles and the equally surprising mistakes of our conscious and unconscious thinking. He achieves an even greater miracle by weaving his insights into an engaging narrative that is compulsively readable from beginning to end. My main problem in doing this review was preventing family members and friends from stealing my copy of the book to read it for themselves... this is one of the greatest and most engaging collections of insights into the human mind I have read." (William Easterly, Financial Times)
"Absorbing, intriguing...By making us aware of our minds' tricks, Kahneman hopes to inspire individuals and organisations to identify strategies to outwit them" (Jenni Russell, Sunday Times)
"Profound ... As Copernicus removed the Earth from the centre of the universe and Darwin knocked humans off their biological perch, Mr. Kahneman has shown that we are not the paragons of reason we assume ourselves to be." ( The Economist)

Better read the book

There are lot of reference pictures in the book which makes it hard to visualize through audio book. I didnt enjoy the book as it's too technical and hard to listen. I would rather read the book.

Errors by Audio book Publisher

I happened to get this book from a colleague while I was listening to the audiobook. For a while I was listening to the audiobook while I was looking at the text in the book. I found an error where the narrator reads a word exactly opposite to what was written in the book. I went back 5 times to check if I spotted it wrong. But I was right.

Good examples but need more visuals

This book delivered what was expected. Sometimes the topic was out of context but gave overall perspective of behavioural patterns of investors. Chapters were numbered not named. Reference to charts in the book were not available. Emphasis on System 1 and System 2 could have been more during the early chapters.

Very academic and research based

I started reading assuming that it would help structure my thinking and help get me focussed and perhaps give tips on how to use my left and right brain for the best benefits. I struggle to complete it ... it is more of a narration of the journey of arriving at the theories behind the nobel prize . could not find any takeaways even half way into the book ...

Good book

I have learnt many things like idiocratic effect, anchoring. It is like an encyclopaedia of psychology for beginners. It has result of 20 years research. Author is a noble Laurette.
