Daniel Kahneman (Hebrew: דניאל כהנמן‎, born March 5, 1934) is an Israeli-American psychologist notable for his work on the psychology of judgment and decision-making, as well as behavioral economics, for which he was awarded the 2002 Nobel Memorial Prize in Economic Sciences (shared with Vernon L. Smith). His empirical findings challenge the assumption of human rationality prevailing in modern economic theory. With Amos Tversky and others, Kahneman established a cognitive basis for common human errors that arise from heuristics and biases (Kahneman & Tversky, 1973; Kahneman, Slovic & Tversky, 1982; Tversky & Kahneman, 1974), and developed prospect theory (Kahneman & Tversky, 1979).

In 2011, he was named by Foreign Policy magazine to its list of top global thinkers. In the same year, his book Thinking, Fast and Slow, which summarizes much of his research, was published and became a best seller. He is professor emeritus of psychology and public affairs at Princeton University's Woodrow Wilson School. Kahneman is a founding partner of TGG Group, a business and philanthropy consulting company. He is married to Royal Society Fellow Anne Treisman.

In 2015 The Economist listed him as the seventh most influential economist in the world.

1.0 out of 5 stars Poor paper quality
Reviewed in India on September 26, 2018
Don't go with this product. The size of the letters are so small that, I bet, you can't read a page comfortably. I'm not saying anything about the content of the book. The paper quality of the book especially, the size of letters, is so poor that u will regret buying this book. Now it's ur choice.

4.0 out of 5 stars Felt like a chore at times but I forced myself to finish it. It gets better and better.

You'll be disappointed if you are looking for a book that gives you advice by explicitly telling you what you should and shouldn't do. That was my mistake. Since I had these expectations, I had a rough beginning. I forced myself to continue reading it and found it's actually an enjoyable book.

Rather than telling you what you should and shouldn't do, Khaneman explains the process behind human thinking. From all the information the author shares, the reader must then decide what is useful, and what can be applied to our daily lives. In my case, I am getting better at thinking things thoroughly and not making decisions based on emotions.

I highly recommend this book for those that enjoy reading about how the human mind works.

* If you found this review useful, it would mean the world to me if you showed your support by giving it a like. Thank you very much in advance. *
