Summary:

In this work the author has brought together his many years of research and thinking in one book. He explains the two systems that drive the way we think. He exposes the extraordinary capabilities, faults and biases of fast thinking, and reveals the pervasive influence of intuitive impressions on our thoughts and behavior. He 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 personal lives, and how we can use different techniques to guard against the mental glitches that often get us into trouble. This author's work has transformed cognitive psychology and launched the new fields of behavioral economics and happiness studies. He takes us on a tour of the mind and explains the two systems that drive the way we think and the way we make choices.
