Thinking, Fast and Slow
(499 pages) ( 10 Hours)
This book is by Daniel Kahneman. The book summarizes research that Kahneman conducted over decades, often in collaboration with Amos Tversky. It covers all three phases of his career: his early days working on cognitive biases, his work on prospect theory, and his later work on happiness. The book is simply touching, entertaining, and full of intellectual surprises. It is a result of psychological experimentation borne from research and experience. In a nutshell, I find the book as a provocation to think. As a fan of psychology, I encourage everyone to read this book to have a better understanding of the craziness that happens in your brain.
