  1. A brilliant indeed, Nobel Prize winning concept made unbearably tedious by endless case studies Kahneman going on for over 400 pages about his two systems reminded me strongly of Bernard Shaw s comment on Darwin If very few of us have read The Origin of the Species from end to end, it is not because it overtaxes our mind, but because we take in the whole case and are prepared to accept it long before we have come to the end of the innumerable instances and illustrations of which the book mainly [...]


  2. First, for reasons explained below I would not buy this as an audio book.I have mixed feelings about this book for various reasons The first 200 pages Part 1 and 2 are heavily focused on the author trying to convince the reader that it is better to think statistically rather than instinctively intuitively After stating countless studies to support his premise, the author very briefly in Chapter 21 admits that formulas based on statistics or on common sense are both good forms to develop valued a [...]


  3. Most of the times we think fast Then we make mistakes Rarely, but sometimes, we do think slow Then we get it right There, you ve read the book Read this fast, think it over slowly, and skip this book.


  4. This was a difficult but valuable book However, some reviewers claim its value is in changing our mental habits This is a mistake The book is much too complex for that Kahneman concludes the book stating that even he has not been able to do much to curb the instincts of intuition The value of the book, he states, is to give people the vocabulary to spot biases and to criticize the decisions of others Ultimately, a richer language is essential to the skill of constructive criticism pp 417 8 I fin [...]


  5. As others have noted, this book is dense in places, but is tremendously important for decision making from the individual up through public policy Even if you don t have the patience for all the chapters don t neglect the intro and conclusion The TL DR doesn t suffice but 1 human beings are not pure rational agents, but rather complex interplay of automatic and thoughtful reasoning both of which can be right or wrong 2 maximizing happiness requires recognition of when we are in a cognitive minef [...]


  6. Content is interesting, but as other reviewers point out, do not buy the Kindle version, because links often don t work, and many images and footnotes seem to be lost.


  7. Why do people buy extended warranties that are bad value for money Why do we marry people just because they re good in bed Why do investors snatch small profits from winning investments whilst allowing large losses to build up in bad investments Why do parents deny their children life saving vaccinations for fear of unproven risks Why do we think a bird in the hand is worth two in a bush On the whole humans are incredibly good at making bad decisions because they allow emotions and moral values [...]


  8. Don t go with this product The size of the letters are so small that, I bet, you can t read a page comfortably I m not saying anything about the content of the book The paper quality of the book especially, the size of letters, is so poor that u will regret buying this book Now it s ur choice.
