I would have never imagined such a thought process existed. Kahneman does an amazing job in describing the method of behavioral decision making. He breaks it down into two systems, system one and system two, that are responsible for the way we think and make choices. System one being fast, intuitive, and emotional; while system two is slower, more premeditated, and more logical. While listening to the book I began to inquire about my thought process and which system was more dominant in significant decisions I have made to this day.
If you are interested in how you and others make decisions I would highly recommend this book. The knowledge gained is relevant throughout your life time and is an excellent topic of conversation for just about any setting. If you like this review I would advise following through with system one and add this book to cart!
Born to Run is an amazingly captivating book, both written and narrated by Christopher McDougall, about a remarkable race between our country’s greatest Ultra-Runners and the Tarahumara Indians of Mexico’s Copper Canyons. McDougall is a great protagonist making him the best narrator for the audio book. Not once, while listening to the audio book, did I lose interest in his story to not only answer his own personal question, “Why does my foot hurt?”, but to find the ultimate secret to running. Throughout the novel I felt his frustration, understood his disappointment, and shared in his happiness. Born to Run is one of the best books I have ever read/listened to and is full of interesting facts about our country’s most talented runners and a culture that has lived unchanged for over 400 years. McDougall’s work has ignited my running spirit to the point where I’m am currently in training for marathons and at least one ultra-marathon.
This is a must read!
