Publisher's Summary

Daniel Kahneman explains the two systems that drive the way we think. System 1 is fast, intuitive, and emotional; System 2 is slower, deliberate, and logical. Kahneman exposes capabilities and the faults and biases of fast thinking and reveals the pervasive influence of intuitive impressions on our thoughts and behavior.

He explains the impact of loss aversion and overconfidence on corporate strategies; the difficulties of predicting what will make us happy in the future; the challenges of properly framing risks at work and at home; and the profound effect of cognitive biases on everything from playing the stock market to planning the next vacation.

Engaging the listener in a lively conversation about how we think, Kahneman reveals where we can and cannot trust our intuitions and how we can tap into the benefits of slow thinking. He offers practical and enlightening insights into how choices are made in both our business and our personal lives and how we can use different techniques to guard against the mental glitches that often get us into trouble.

To help you deeply understand the book, this audio summary offers: 

  • Chapter summaries, broken down by subsections 
  • Definitions and explanations of the terminology used 
  • Suggested further information of Kahneman's research

I'm lost in the first 10 minutes!

I've never had an audible summary lose me right from the start. I'm 10 minutes in and can't figure out what this lady is even talking about. Maybe this is good if you've read the entire book first and already have an understanding of these "systems" she is talking about. This is literally a waste of my time to even continue listening. :(

works best

A brilliantly written book which brings penetrating insights into the human mind into colloquial language without losing it's scientific rigor. Kahneman is a well known researcher who has made numerous discoveries in the field of human behavior.

I bought a different summary that apparently wasn't done by a native english speaker, so I decided to try this one. What a difference!

Good length

A future, if it will become profitable for me or not. We shouldn't speak directly especially when we're angry. We should think about it first, real quick to avoid any quarrel, fights or misunderstandings. This one's a highly recommendable book!

For those interested in an in-depth look at systems thinking, the author provides an extensive list of references to explore. The citations are well done, making it easy to locate which resources to utilize for further exploration.

Fantastic book.

This is a good introduction to systems thinking. Consider it a high level overview. However, the author does provide specific references to resources for those who want to learn more on the topic.

Fantastic. Enjoy this book.

My hats off to this author for making the principles about the functioning of systems so easily accessible to us by looking at common day-to-day systems that we see or participate in, in light of these principles.

Awesome book about life lessons and attitudes!

A great introduction to systems thinking without technical details. For a more technical introduction see Donella Meadows Systems Thinking a Primer.
