"Daniel Kahneman is among the most influential psychologists in history and certainly the most important psychologist alive today. * * * His work has reshaped social psychology, cognitive science, the study of reason and of happiness, and behavioral economics, a field that he and his collaborator Amos Tversky helped to launch. The appearance of Thinking, Fast and Slow is a major event. " (Steven Pinker, Harvard College Professor of Psychology)
Nobel Prize winner Daniel Kahneman's newest book, Thinking, Fast and Slow, is an outstandingly clear and precise study of the 'dual-process model of the brain, our emotional bias and our embedded self-delusion.' A must-read for anyone intrigued about how we make decisions.
Thinking Fast and Slow by Daniel Kahneman has made me realize how dangerous it is in this highly charged political season that we take time to really examine our beliefs and make sure we aren't answering an "easier question" when we say we agree with someone's political viewpoint.
