Book Review: Thinking, Fast and Slow

Thinking, Fast and Slow book cover

This week’s book is “Thinking, Fast and Slow” by Daniel Kahneman. This book explains so much about the way we think and the fallacies we make because we let ourselves believe in our “fast mind.” Our slow thinking is our more intellectual, logical thought process that is required when you do a math problem. Of course, these are just theoretical thinking minds, and they actually don’t exist. But for this book, it’s a great analogy for understanding Dr. Kahneman’s research over the last few decades.

I really can’t explain every single study of this book, but Derek Sivers has written some great notes on it. That is a great primer for what’s in store.
