Over the next 5 days, Amazon is having a one-day flash book sale for 4 hours — or until the books sell out.
The books are deeply discounted.
Today’s Book is Thinking, Fast and Slow by Daniel Kahneman for $2.99 (originally $30). And it expires at 4 p.m. EST – or as soon as the book sells out (it’s already 70% gone and it just went live).
I just grabbed this book for my dad!
Drawing on decades of research in psychology that resulted in a Nobel Prize in Economic Sciences, Daniel Kahneman takes readers on an exploration of what influences thought example by example, sometimes with unlikely word pairs like “vomit and banana.” System 1 and System 2, the fast and slow types of thinking, become characters that illustrate the psychology behind things we think we understand but really don’t, such as intuition. Kahneman’s transparent and careful treatment of his subject has the potential to change how we think, not just about thinking, but about how we live our lives. Thinking, Fast and Slowgives deep–and sometimes frightening–insight about what goes on inside our heads: the psychological basis for reactions, judgments, recognition, choices, conclusions, and much more.
