SOLD OUT Politics & Prose Bookstore and Sixth & I Present DANIEL KAHNEMAN
In Thinking, Fast and Slow the international bestseller now out in paperback Kahneman, the renowned psychologist and winner of the Nobel Prize in Economics, takes us on a tour of the mind and explains the two systems that drive the way we think.
System 1 is fast, intuitive, and emotional; System 2 is slower, more deliberative, and more logical. The impact of overconfidence on corporate strategies, the difficulties of predicting what will make us happy in the future, the profound effect of cognitive biases on everything from playing the stock market to planning our next vacation each of these can be understood by knowing how the two systems shape our decisions.
Kahneman reveals where we can and cannot trust our intuitions and how we can tap into the benefits of slow thinking. He offers practical insights into how choices are made in both our business and our personal lives and how we can use different techniques to guard against the mental glitches that often get us into trouble.
