I have read a fair number of books on behavioural economics in the past and was really looking forward to reading this one. It is a good book, a lot of what Kahneman has written about in here has been ... Read full review

Not being a psychologist, I like Thinking, Fast and Slow. Kahneman explains in a clear way his research and findings. The chapters are well chosen and compact. However, reading all experiments requires, according to me, some persistence to continue. Personally I liked the statistics but I can imagine not everybody does. All in all an interesting book about a topic I rarely know.

Super annoying to read because the author describes research after research in painstaking details, and when he finally gets to the point he repeats it again and again. He also introduces many ... Read full review

Where do I start? I start where I stop, this book is repetition. Over & over & over. Certainty/uncertainty/certainty/uncertainty. There is a large emphasis put on story telling before every single ... Read full review
