Thinking Fast and Slow

Daniel Kahneman

If you consider yourself a predominantly rational being, think again. Nobel-Prize-winning Daniel Kahneman shows that there are two systems that determine the way we think. System 1 is fast, intuitive and emotional. System 2 is slower, more deliberate and more logical. But System 2 is also lazy, so we spend most of our time operating under the cognitive biases that make up System 1. These are errors in reasoning that we don’t realise we have, but they drive how we view the world. Thinking Fast and Slow is a rich book full of wonderful ‘ah-ha’ moments. Essential reading for all ‘rationalists’ out there.
