I listen to audio books when I drive. He frequently states "Refer to the PDF download and look at the picture".
This book basically summarized what has been going on in the field of behavioral economics for the last 50 years. If you have read other pop-econ books, much of this will be familiar to you.
The vocal performance is what is worst about this, the narrator is slow and monotone, and his inflection and pace shows he understands little of what is being read. I will never listen to another audio book by this narrator.
I refer to this book often to understand my own reactions to everyday challenges. Professor Kahneman's theories, when properly applied, can help us influence our choices positively. In addition to the audible, I purchase the hardcover version so I can refer to it as often as I need to.
It is a book that can change the course of your life.

I don't think you should. I is full of incredible ideas that take time to get digested
This is an intriguing book on human decision making. I recommend it as a read rather than a listen. It was a difficult listen because there are many examples that require careful comparisons between items that are close in meaning. For me, rewinding was often needed to ensure I understood the concept being explained through the example. The narrator was ok, but neither great nor poor.
Usually when you read a book you have a very good Idea how good or bad it is after the first hour or 50 pages you read...
And by that measure this book is great!
But this book just keep getting better and better as you progress... And thank G-d, Prof. Daniel Kahneman wrote a long book!
Yes. Very interesting and informative. Gathers a lot of research and presents it in a logical format.
Discussions of systems one and two.
No. Very long book that takes a bit of time to assimilate.
Worth a listen
Jack of all trades, but expert at none. Newest and lates adventure is learning to fly and rebuilding my business.
Ok, I think this is really interesting stuff, but I have huge trouble listening to a book with lists or tables in them. Im not sure how the data was displayed in the book, but the way it was read was really hard to follow at times. The performance was fine, but it was just really hard to visualize some of the info.
I recommend against the audio version. The book is great. But the narrator is grating on the nerves. I couldn't even listen to it.
