Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com Review

Amazon Best Books of the Month, November 2011: Drawing on decades of research in psychology that resulted in a Nobel Prize in Economic Sciences, Daniel Kahneman takes readers on an exploration of what influences thought example by example, sometimes with unlikely word pairs like "vomit and banana." System 1 and System 2, the fast and slow types of thinking, become characters that illustrate the psychology behind things we think we understand but really don't, such as intuition. Kahneman's transparent and careful treatment of his subject has the potential to change how we think, not just about thinking, but about how we live our lives. Thinking, Fast and Slow gives deep--and sometimes frightening--insight about what goes on inside our heads: the psychological basis for reactions, judgments, recognition, choices, conclusions, and much more.  --JoVon Sotak

Review

Daniel Kahneman is among the most influential psychologists in history and certainly the most important psychologist alive today...The appearance of Thinking, Fast and Slow is a major event -- Steven Pinker, Author Of The Language Instinct This is a landmark book in social thought, in the same league as The Wealth of Nations by Adam Smith and The Interpretation of Dreams by Sigmund Freud -- Nassim Nicholas Taleb, Author Of 'the Black Swan' Daniel Kahneman is one of the most original and interesting thinkers of our time. There may be no other person on the planet who better understands how and why we make the choices we make. In this absolutely amazing book, he shares a lifetime's worth of wisdom presented in a manner that is simple and engaging, but nonetheless stunningly profound. This book is a must read for anyone with a curious mind -- Steven D. Levitt, Co-Author Of 'freakonomics' This book is a tour de force by an intellectual giant; it is readable, wise, and deep. Buy it fast. Read it slowly and repeatedly. It will change the way you think, on the job, about the world, and in your own life -- Richard Thaler, Co-Author Of 'nudge' --This text refers to an alternate kindle_edition edition.

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.

4.0 out of 5 stars Felt like a chore at times but I forced myself to finish it. It gets better and better.
Reviewed in Mexico on December 9, 2019
You'll be disappointed if you are looking for a book that gives you advice by explicitly telling you what you should and shouldn't do. That was my mistake. Since I had these expectations, I had a rough beginning. I forced myself to continue reading it and found it's actually an enjoyable book.

Rather than telling you what you should and shouldn't do, Khaneman explains the process behind human thinking. From all the information the author shares, the reader must then decide what is useful, and what can be applied to our daily lives. In my case, I am getting better at thinking things thoroughly and not making decisions based on emotions.

I highly recommend this book for those that enjoy reading about how the human mind works.
