    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.

    Andrew says: "An excellent and thorough review of the subject"
    "Brilliant! Should be taught at schools"

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

    It's brilliant - complex concepts explained plainly with detail to underpin the conclusions


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Thinking, Fast and Slow?

    There are so many - The power of system 1 - especially that we are blind to our own blindness! That we think we will step in and help a stranger but we won't - that is quite scary.


    What about Patrick Egan’s performance did you like?

    He gave the book life! I didn't want to stop listening.


    What’s an idea from the book that you will remember?

    How gullible we are … we need to take responsibility for what we accept for truth and what we question - we need to question a lot more!

    Have you ever...Invested time in something that, with hindsight, just wasn't worth it? Overpayed in an Ebay auction? Continued doing something you knew was bad for you? Sold stocks too late, or too early? Taken credit for success, but blamed failure on external circumstances? Backed the wrong horse? These are examples of cognitive biases, simple errors we all make in our day-to-day thinking.

    Ronel says: "A summary of so many books"

    What did you love best about The Art of Thinking Clearly?

    It's a summary of Thinking fast and slow / invisible gorilla / predictably irrational: Overall quick and precise reflection of a big collection of theories.


    What other book might you compare The Art of Thinking Clearly to and why?

    Thinking fast and slow by Daniel Khanemann - very similar just shorter with less detail on case studies


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    yes
