|Description||The phemenal New York Times Bestseller by Nobel Prize-winner Daniel Kahneman, Thinking Fast and Slow offers a whole new look at the way our minds work, and how we make decisions. 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.|
|Author Biography||Daniel Kahneman is a Senior Scholar at Princeton University, and Emeritus Professor of Public Affairs, Woodrow Wilson School of Public and International Affairs. He was awarded the Nobel Prize in Economics in 2002.|

Exposing cognitive biases like no other
This book uncovers the typical human biases that surface when one is faced with making decisions under uncertainty. Although I personally found the book to be going into too much details in places, the general moral of the book is that our thought process is riddled with flaws and sometimes we really ought to stop and think hard about decision we make especially when those decisions are concerned future financial gains/loses. For me as a trader/speculator in foreign exchange this book was an eye opener and has provided useful guide to decision making process in live markets.

Kahneman handed me the keys to the University of my mind.
I was told about this book by my University Professor (of Finance) and based on her description of the book, I bought it. It was the breath of fresh air and clarity I was looking for whilst doing my MBA. I knew I was in the hands of a genius by the end of page 1 and couldn't put it down at all. I am sure 'Thinking Fast and Slow' is not everyone's cup of tea as it makes you probe deep into who you are and how you have come to think the way that you do, and let's be honest, most of us would avoid doing this given the choice. I am sure there is nothing like this on the shelves and is not to be confused with a self-help book that merely motivates you without education. This book will explain how it is possible that our brains and the decisions we make automatically every second of the day are not to be trusted entirely and why our world is the way it is when we look at it. I found 'Thinking Fast and Slow' more thrilling than a university education and thousands of dollars cheaper.
