Thinking, Fast and Slow by Daniel Kahneman

I won this book from the softlayer challenge I took part in last year but never got around to reading it. It was sent by the guys at the Singapore office

I’ve a paper copy…

…but also picked up a copy on my kindle to be able to bring it around easily. I’m plowing through the book and practicing a little speed reading at the same time (one saccade per line).

It’s interesting how our fast thought and our deliberate thought are occasionally at odds with one another and how our gut feels are sometimes substitute an easy question for a hard one without us knowing. Lousy example would be “Is it wise to do A?” is substituted with “Do I like A?” or “Should I buy this stock?” substituted with “What’s today’s price?”

If you’re interested, a random book review I haven’t read over here should have a little more detail should you require it.
