Thinking Fast and Slow ...in 30 minutes
is the essential guide to quickly understanding the important lessons on decision-making outlined in the New York Times

In Thinking Fast and Slow
author Daniel Kahneman gets to the bottom of how to make good decisions and when to trust your intuition. Kahneman wants readers to avoid putting too much weight on acting quickly on their intuition when making decisions, as intuition is frequently colored by overconfidence and bias.

Through detailed research and real-life examples, Thinking Fast and Slow
teaches readers when to apply each type of thought in order to improve everything from playing the stock market to increasing personal happiness. Thinking Fast and Slow
