The guru to the gurus at last shares his knowledge with the rest of us. Nobel laureate Daniel Kahneman's seminal studies in behavioral psychology, behavioral economics, and happiness studies have influenced numerous other authors, including Steven Pinker and Malcolm Gladwell. In Thinking, Fast and Slow, Kahneman at last offers his own, first book for the general public. It is a lucid and enlightening summary of his life's work. It will change the way you think about thinking.
Two systems drive the way we think and make choices, Kahneman explains: System One is fast, intuitive, and emotional; System Two is slower, more deliberative, and more logical. Examining how both systems function within the mind, Kahneman exposes the extraordinary capabilities as well as the biases of fast thinking and the pervasive influence of intuitive impressions on our thoughts and our choices. Engaging the reader in a lively conversation about how we think, he shows where we can trust our intuitions and how we can tap into the benefits of slow thinking, contrasting the two-system view of the mind with the standard model of the rational economic agent.
Kahneman's singularly influential work has transformed cognitive psychology and launched the new fields of behavioral economics and happiness studies. In this path-breaking book, Kahneman shows how the mind works, and offers practical and enlightening insights into how choices are made in both our business and personal lives - and how we can guard against the mental glitches that often get us into trouble.

"A tour de force. . . Kahneman's book is a must read for anyone interested in either human behavior or investing. He clearly shows that while we like to think of ourselves as rational in our decision making, the truth is we are subject to many biases. At least being aware of them will give you a better chance of avoiding them, or at least making fewer of them." (Larry Swedroe, CBS News)
"A major intellectual event . . . The work of Kahneman and Tversky was a crucial pivot point in the way we see ourselves." (David Brooks, The New York Times)
"[Thinking, Fast and Slow] is wonderful, of course. To anyone with the slightest interest in the workings of his own mind, it is so rich and fascinating that any summary would seem absurd." (Michael Lewis, Vanity Fair)

Ein "Must Read"

Das Verständnis vom Denken an sich verbessert sich mit diesem Buch um einiges.
Daniel Kahnemann stellt unser Gedankenkostrukt, unser "Mind", aufgeteilt in zwei gedachte Systeme dar, die sehr gut die menschliche Denk- und Handlungsweise erklären.
Meiner Meinung nach ist das Thema für jeden in Betracht zu ziehen, damit mehr Aufmerksamkeit den Situationen geboten wird die der Gefahr unterlaufen durch Intuition des Unsinns zu verfallen.
Daniel Kahnemanns Schreibweise ist klar und verständlich, sie ist auf die Verständlichkeit ausgelegt; im eigentlichen kann jeder dem Inhalt diesed Buches folgen.
Ich empfehle dieses Buch daher jedem, egal welcher Bildungsschicht, weiter, der sein Verständnis der Welt und des Menschens verbessern will. Das Wissen und Verständnis das durch dieses Buch erlangt wird lässt sich sehr gut auf vielerlei andere Bereiche übertragen.
