    Story
    (71)

    Daniel Kahneman, recipient of the Nobel Prize in Economic Sciences for his seminal work in psychology challenging the rational model of judgment and decision making, is one of the world's most important thinkers. His ideas have had a profound impact on many fields - including business, medicine, and politics - but until now, he has never brought together his many years of research in one book.

    Story
    What did you love best about Thinking, Fast and Slow?

    At the start of the book I was disappointed but as soon as I understood where the author is going, I realized that this is no ordinary book.
    I'm listening to it again back to back to absorb as much as I can


    What did you like best about this story?

    In detailed examples of mental errors and errors in judgement


    Which scene was your favorite?

    First one hour of the book I was completely lost and I didn't know what this book is all about. I thought it is about statistics but then it all switched to all my logic errors.


    What insight do you think you’ll apply from Thinking, Fast and Slow?

    Investment


    Any additional comments?

    I don't know if anyone is reading me review but if you are don't miss out on this one.
    A book from a winner of a Nobel prize, worth reading (listening to in this case).

Their lives, like all of ours, are filled with a bewildering blizzard of emails, phone calls, yet more emails, meetings, projects, proposals, and plans.

    There are an endless number of sales books that purport to let the reader in on the secrets of great selling. And many of them even have useful ideas and tips. But it doesn't matter how many tricks a salesperson has at hand if he or she doesn't have the one most important weapon in any salesperson's arsenal: the motivation to get out there and sell!Rhetorical tricks and clever devices, even if they're occasionally effective, don't make great salespeople; hard-working, self-motivated, optimistic people do.
