Nobel Prize–winning psychologist Daniel Kahneman explores the mysteries of intuition, judgment, bias, and logic in the international bestseller Thinking, Fast and Slow. His award-winning book explains the different ways people think, whether they’re deciding how to invest their money or how to make friends.
Kahneman’s experiments in behavioral economics, in collaboration with cognitive psychologist Amos Tversky, led to a theory of two systems of thought: the fast thinking used when ducking a blow, and slow thinking that’s better employed for making major life decisions.
Applying these psychological concepts to different facets of our lives, Kahneman demonstrates how to better understand your own decision-making, and the choices made by others.

Issues arise when the heuristics generated are inadequate substitutes. The mood heuristic is the way the mind substitutes an assessment of a current mood for the more complicated question of general happiness or other emotional assessment. The affect heuristic refers to the way we tend to allow our likes and dislikes to control our beliefs about the world.
