There have been many good books on human rationality and irrationality, but only one masterpiece. That masterpiece is Daniel Kahneman's "Thinking, Fast and Slow". Kahneman, a winner of the Nobel Prize for economics, distils a lifetime of research into an encyclopedic coverage of both the surprising miracles and the equally surprising mistakes of our conscious and unconscious thinking. Why is there more chance we'll believe something if it's in a bold type face? Why are judges more likely to deny parole before lunch? Why do we assume a good-looking person will be more competent? The answer lies in the two ways we make choices: fast, intuitive thinking, and slow, rational thinking. This book reveals how our minds are tripped up by error and prejudice (even when we think we are being logical), and gives you practical techniques for slower, smarter thinking. It will enable to you make better decisions at work, at home, and in everything you do.
The subject of the book is more than relevant nowadays since many issues discussed in the book can be applied to the cognitive fallacies we face in times of corona…
