Thinking, Fast and Slow


Author: Daniel Kahneman

Book Site: Thinking Fast and Slow


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.

The book covers two types of thinking; System 1 (Fast) and System 2 (slow).

System 1 is largely unconscious and it makes snap judgments based upon our memory of similar events and our emotions. System 2 is painfully slow, and is the process by which we consciously check the facts and think carefully and rationally.

This book has interesting anecdotes as well as layman's summaries of psychological research and aims to leave you feeling fascinated by the brain.
