THINKING FAST AND SLOW SUMMARY (BY DANIEL KAHNEMAN)
Thinking Fast and Slow by Daniel Kahneman [BOOK SUMMARY & PDF]
It was the winner of the National Academies Communication Award for best creative work that helps the public understanding of topics in behavioral science , engineering and medicine. The book summarizes research that Kahneman conducted over decades, often in collaboration with Amos Tversky. The central thesis is a dichotomy between two modes of thought : "System 1" is fast, instinctive and emotional ; "System 2" is slower, more deliberative , and more logical. The book delineates cognitive biases associated with each type of thinking, starting with Kahneman's own research on loss aversion. From framing choices to people's tendency to replace a difficult question with one which is easy to answer, the book highlights several decades of academic research to suggest that people place too much confidence in human judgement. The book also shares many insights from Kahneman's work with the Israel Defense Forces and with the various departments and collaborators that have contributed to his growth as a thinker and researcher.
