Daniel Kahneman’s book Thinking Fast and Slow, which highlights his many years of research and won him the Nobel Prize, explains his contributions to our current understanding of psychology and behavioural economics. Kahneman and his colleagues have advanced our knowledge of the human mind over the years.

This book is suggested for anyone with an interest in how the mind functions, how people solve problems and form judgements, as well as the faults that our minds are subject to. Our capacity for thought quickly and slowly reveals that our mind is divided into two systems. System 1 operates automatically and with minimal effort, whereas System 2 operates more carefully and needs greater concentration.

Depending on which brain system is in control at any one time, our thoughts and behaviours change. We use System 1 to think quickly, such as when we drive a car or remember our age in a talk. System 1 acts intuitively and naturally. Meanwhile, System 2 is concerned with problem-solving and focus; we activate it to think slowly, such as when we solve a math problem etc.

If you are interested in psychology and the ways in which and why we make choices, Thinking Fast and Slow is surely a book that you should read. The core of decision-making is cut open by Thinking Fast and Slow. It examines the basic brain function that we all perform on a daily basis. There isn’t just one clear self-help “recipe” for achievement. But if you want to explore your beliefs, it’s an interesting book.
