Publisher's Summary

Thinking, Fast and Slow by Daniel Kahneman | Book Summary | Readtrepreneur

Disclaimer: This is not the original book. This summary is wholly written and published by readtrepreneur.com It is not affiliated with the original author in any way.

All of us have two systems inside us: System 1 that does fast thinking and System 2 that does slow thinking.

In Thinking, Fast and Slow, we will learn how our minds work and arrive at decisions. With this newfound knowledge, we will have a heightened awareness of which system we are using and hence, make better decisions for ourselves.

"We can be blind to the obvious, and we are also blind to our blindness." - Daniel Kahneman

Author Daniel Kahneman, a renowned psychologist and Nobel Prize winner, gives us valuable insights on how various factors affect the decisions we make which many a times, get us into trouble, as well as the system responsible for it.

With many examples and clear explanations, we will learn when we can trust our intuition, and how we can engage our slow thinking better to our benefit.

P.S.: This book is a treasure trove of knowledge that will help you learn how to use both Systems 1 and 2 of your mind, inching your way to making better decisions in life.

Too brief of a summary

Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

I would not recommend this to a friend because it doesn't touch the concepts of the book. This summary is like reading the titles to the chapters without explaining the concepts. The book is so rich and full and the summary doesn't really summarize. Instead of a long introduction to the book they could have added more details to each chapter. Buy the full version.

What could Readtrepreneur Publishing have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

Less of an initial introduction to the book and more from each chapter, adding more examples would have made it more worth it.

Have you listened to any of Bridger Conklin’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

Bridger Conklin's performance of narrating was good.

Did Summary: Thinking, Fast and Slow by Daniel Kahneman inspire you to do anything?

Yes, it inspired me to buy the full version because this was worthless.

The way the narrator explained everything was awesome and the tone of their voice was very good. I listened to this off and on because it was quite long. Regardless it's pretty unique.

Easy to follow

Great, short and to the point. I rarely give five stars, but it’s the best book, you'll spend on a audio (I did Audible, but I’ll also buy the book to get the references easily ).

Put me to sleep

I love self - development books and this is the first and last time I tried read/listen to the summary. The voice of Mr Conklin which very good for hypnosis and his style of reading which is melodic almost like singing made me so sleepy that I could not listen any longer. The huge oversimplification of the chapters was not applying and it 100% would never allow my brain to memorise as significant information.

Useful one..

This is a wonderfully written book, it explains how people think and make decisions in life. I am a big fan of psychology currently I am researching how to combine technology with psychology to help people and this is a great start for me.
