    Summary of the Book

    The author in this book explains two ways of making choices. The first way is fast, emotional, and intuitive. The other way is slow, deliberative, and logical. By examining both these ways, Kahneman unveils the extraordinary capacities, biases of thinking fast, and various other aspects of the human mind. This is an engaging read that helps you understand your mind and how to avoid glitches while making decisions.

    About the Author

    Israeli-American psychologist Daniel Kahneman was born on March 5, 1934. Currently, professor emeritus of psychology and public affairs at Princeton University’s Woodrow Wilson School, Kahneman is notable for his works on the psychology of judgement and decision-making. His works on behavioural economics helped him win the 2002 Nobel Memorial Prize in Economic Sciences, which he shared with Vernon L. Smith. His other notable works include Attention and Effort (1973), Judgement Under Uncertainty: Heuristics and Biases (1982), Well-being: The Foundations of Hedonic Psychology and Thinking, Fast and Slow (2011), among others.

    One of the most fascinating books i have read after Bhagwat Gita & A Brief History of Time.

    Yeah !!! you heard me right. This is one of those books you read once in a lifetime.

    Buy the other edition

    If you like larger print and meaty pages buy the other edition from publisher Allen Lane, ISBN 9781846146060, which is also available on Flipkart. This edition is more expensive (as of my purchase) and Flipkart product page states that this is an imported edition from publisher Farrar Straus Giroux, but it is actually "republished" by Penguin and just not as good.

    An excellent book, I must add, as far as I can tell from the few pages I have read so far.

    This very well written book will enlighten and entertain the reader !!!
    author "Daniel Kahneman " considered one of the most important psychologists alive today .......also he has got Nobel in Economic Sciences !!
    Personally I think this is a great book because it opens a new perspective. Many human behaviors can be explained well in the "System 1 vs. System 2" framework.'
    The excellent style of writing in...

    Could be way better

    The book content is brilliant but this isn't a comfortable print to read. Some pages are light, some are dark.. The letters are too small. Wont recommend this.. Choose some other edition please.

    A nice peek in our cognition and thinking

    Kahneman gives a good overview on how we think and behave and has a good framework on analyzing. Kahneman introduces two mental systems, one that is fast and the other slow. Well written and informative. Basically, this book provides the reader an impressive overview of many key concepts in behavioral research, with lots of illuminating stories from Kahneman's work and experiences. Highly recommended

    Nice Read..

    Daniel Kahneman, the noble laureate, has brilliantly combined Economics with Psychology. He has explained with examples the rational and the so called rational thinking which makes us choose. His grasp on the thought process and behaviour pattern is excellent. An excellent read.

    Voice of Mind n conscience

    the brain as it is an analytical part of the human system would always try n come up with snap judgements while the voice of Conscience almost takes its time to give the verdict but is crystal clear in its statement .. the need is to listen to the soft whisper .. n act acoordingly..
    In terms of Joy n alligning yourself with the Universe .. its always the Voice of Conscience that wins as it is the voice of the the guarding angel...

    Pure brilliance.

    As someone said, buy it fast and read it slow. Seriously this can change the way you think of decisions. Sure not an easy read, does take some effort to digest this.

    Book somewhat tells us the conclusions of various experiments that author did during his entire lifetime. He brilliantly manages to shed light into the internal working of our brain by means of two systems.

    A must read in my list.

    Good quality paper and print.

    The copy of this book that I received was very genuine and made out of good quality. The paper feels nice and the printing is very clear and most importantly aligned with the borders of the page. This is 100% genuine book.
