Thinking Fast and Slow by Daniel Kahneman

Daniel Kahneman, (psychologist) explains how our behaviour is determined by the two systems of the mind that drive the way we think. System 1 is fast, intuitive, and emotional; System 2 is slower, more deliberative, and more logical. These two systems shape our judgments and decisions and impact the way we think and respond; they explain the difficulties we have predicting, making plans and how we need to be aware of cognitive biases and use different techniques to circumvent them.

Daniel Kahneman illustrateshow our brain is ‘lazy’ so we don’t use the full power of intelligence available to us; our minds are riddled with biases leading to poor decision making so Kahneman shows us where we can and cannot trust our intuitions and how we can tap into the benefits of ‘slow thinking’.
