Nobel laureate Daniel Kahneman's seminal studies in behavioral psychology, behavioral economics, and happiness studies have influenced numerous other authors, including Steven Pinker and Malcolm Gladwell. In Thinking, Fast and Slow, Kahneman at last offers his own, first book for the general public. It is a lucid and enlightening summary of his life's work. It will change the way you think about thinking. Two systems drive the way we think and make choices, Kahneman explains....

Good information and I liked the book, but the whole thing felt like a sales pitch for companies that Tony is part owner of. The companies even changed between his last book.

I appreciated the non-religious approach to the story of Jesus' life and death. Worth your time

Then, on the ocean surface, a face appeared....
