Good but too dense
This is basically two books worth of material: System 1 vs System 2, which is theoretically the topic of the book, is crowded out by a review of heuristics and biases research. The
latter is a book by itself, and it's hard to remember the earlier material by the end of the book since there's no interleaving. Interesting subjects presented well, just missing some editorial ruthlessness.

What I thought about this book is just exactly how the title is. You think both fast and slow but Daniel Kahneman makes you more aware of the reason why you are reading it fast or slow. He gives numerous examples of everyday life situations and reasons why we make the choices we make. Sometimes I can understand fully the complex choices we make in life and then other times I have to take longer to get the point he is getting across. He definitely spent a lot of research on studying the human mind and the way it works. I recommend this book if you are interested in psychology and human behavior.

I've been reading this for a very long time; for two reasons. 1)To ensure I understanding all of the amazing revelations and knowledge held in each chapter 2) because it's a bit boring. I won't go in to discussing the theories here but this contains theories of the upmost importance. Read full review

Changed my perspective on everyday life as well as society as a whole. All the research on how the mind works is humbling, but instead how simply leaving me humbled the authors also try to show how ... Read full review

One of the problems with reading really current books back to back is that they start referencing each other. In this book, the author calls out specific issues with "Good to Great", which I just ... Read full review

You will enjoy this book if you like Malcolm Gladwell. Thinking Fast and Slows reassured me of my intuition and debunks the myth of the weight of science and technology and decision-making. Read full review
