Kahneman's concept is very well explained. The psychological constructs are very well detailed and the value this book brings is identifying the human mind processes behind flawed decision making. It helps understand why so many theories diverge from actual human behavior.
My only reason not to give it a 5-Star review is : even while the book is very well explained it parts from the assumption the reader is very well informed of psychology, statistical and economic knowledge which the reader may not have unless he/she has already dove in the subject or is willing to research them quickly before going back to the book.
This was a very difficult audiobook for follow. Did not enjoy it honestly. I will look for a refund. The over-arching concept is ok but execution is sub-standard. Sorry, but this is my honest view.
A world class career of surprising and deeply relevant insights backed by compelling evidence packed into a single book! This is the type of read that makes me feel like I have the cheat codes for my mind and the kinds of others. I can't recommend it more highly.
Only complaint was the narrator. It was like listening to sonorous molasses. Beautiful voice just slow. I listed at 1.80 speed without struggle and I normally listen at normal speed.
You are not to be considered fully adult before you have the knowledge of how your brain functions which is provided here in this book. Not that this book is the only requirement, but in many ways it is the foundation of humility that will motivate and enable you to go on and acquire the skills to look for and deal with the inmate failings of the human intellect and perception
I love behavioral economics, biases, and fallacies. This book is amazing and should be read by every economist. I will preface by saying that there are books that do a similar job of giving you a summary of information in a more compact format. However I loved it because I'm interested in the studies and the storytelling of each different scenario so that it sticks better in my head.
After the first few chapters you understand that you sometimes predict or assume incorrectly and that its hard to change that even if you know about it. Then you get to listen to another 18 hours of examples telling you the same thing.
Yes it has.
I don't know. maybe. The speaking was fine.
Just watch Brain Games on TV. Its alot more entertaining.
