Description

The phenomenal New York TimesBestseller by Nobel Prize-winner Daniel Kahneman, Thinking Fast and Slowoffers 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 thinkwe 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 New York TimesBestseller, acclaimed by author such as Freakonomicsco-author Steven D.
