The unabridged, downloadable audiobook edition of Thinking, Fast and Slow, Daniel Kahneman’s pioneering work that tackles questions of intuition and rationality. Read by the actor Patrick Egan.

Daniel Kahneman, recipient of the Nobel Prize in Economic Sciences for his seminal work in psychology challenging the rational model of judgment and decision making, is one of the world’s most important thinkers. His ideas have had a profound impact on many fields – including business, medicine, and politics – but until now, he has never brought together his many years of research in one book.

In Thinking, Fast and Slow, Kahneman takes us on a groundbreaking tour of the mind and explains the two systems that drive the way we think and make choices. One system is fast, intuitive, and emotional; the other is slower, more deliberative, and more logical. Kahneman exposes the extraordinary capabilities-and also the faults and biases-of fast thinking, and reveals the pervasive influence of intuitive impressions on our thoughts and behaviour. The importance of properly framing risks, the effects of cognitive biases on how we view others, the dangers of prediction, the right ways to develop skills, the pros and cons of fear and optimism, the difference between our experience and memory of events, the real components of happiness-each of these can be understood only by knowing how the two systems work together to shape our judgments and decisions.

Drawing on a lifetime’s experimental experience, 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 professional and our personal lives-and how we can use different techniques to guard against the mental glitches that often get us into trouble. Thinking, Fast and Slow will transform the way you take decisions and experience the world.

PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying reference material will be available in your My Library section along with the audio.

Life changing experience This is so far the most original work I have read. Daniel takes behavior psychology to another level with strong data and references. It’s a must read for everyone who believes in improving the habits relating to your sub-conscious thinking. A Nobel laureate of true genius.

A brilliant tour de force into the way your mind works This is one book which anybody, who has the slightest desire to understand the way our mind makes decisions and occasionally makes errors, should read. The description of how cognitive biases arise through the use of heuristics is fascinating. Behavioral Economics students will especially find in the book a comprehensive hand held introduction to the nuances of the subject. But even beyond the disciplines of psychology and economics, I strongly recommend this book to the lay person too. If you find the beginning a bit to technical, I urge you to stay put. The overall experience by the end will be most enriching and rewarding.
