Thinking, Fast and Slow ...in 30 Minutes is the essential guide to quickly understanding the fundamental components of decision making outlined in Daniel Kahneman's bestselling book, Thinking, Fast and Slow.
Understand the key ideas behind Thinking, Fast and Slow in a fraction of the time:
• Concise chapter-by-chapter synopses
• Essential insights and takeaways highlighted
• Illustrative case studies demonstrate Kahneman's groundbreaking research in behavioral economics
In Thinking, Fast and Slow, Daniel Kahneman, best-selling author and recipient of the Nobel Prize in Economics, has compiled his many years of groundbreaking research to offer practical knowledge and insights into how people's minds make decisions. Challenging the standard model of judgment, Kahneman aims to enhance the everyday language about thinking to more accurately discuss, diagnose, and reduce poor judgment.
Thought, Kahneman explains, has two distinct systems: the fast and intuitive System 1, and the slow and effortful System 2. Intuitive decision making is often effective, but in Thinking, Fast and Slow Kahneman highlights situations in which it is unreliable-when decisions require predicting the future and assessing risks.
Presenting a framework for how these two systems impact the mind, Thinking, Fast and Slow reveals the far-reaching impact of cognitive biases-from creating public policy to playing the stock market to increasing personal happiness-and provides tools for applying behavioral economics toward better decision making.

Thinking, Fast and Slow…in 30 minutes is an expert summary of the complete work. In the full study, Nobel Prize winning author Daniel Kahneman describes the two systems of thought: fast thinking is instinctive while slow thinking is more intentional. People often use fast thinking to make decisions when slow thinking or a combination of the two would yield more favorable results. The dominance of fast thinking over slow thinking is especially discernible when people make choices. For example, most people choose a home to buy based on emotions instead of logic. When serving on a jury, people often choose a verdict based on how they feel about the parties involved instead of the facts of the case. This Expert Summary is perfect for those who want to understand human thought but lack the time needed to study the topic fully. This synopsis outlines the research and life applications that will truly help you comprehend the way people think.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.

Get ready to make better decisions in your life! Kahneman provides a fascinating explanation of how and why we make decisions all the time in an automated and emotional way. But additional methods exist and this book provides the tools to use more deliberate methods and break the cycle of poor decision-making that circumvents our happiness instead of creating it. This book spells it out and may even provide a “wow” moment of truth. We all think fast and slowly and decide things the same way, but this book addresses how to use both effectively for a truly happier life.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.

If System 1 and System 2 could get their collective acts together and work as a team, we could all make better decisions, according to this 30-minute executive summary of “Thinking, Fast and Slow.” The examples in this quick read are compelling enough to convince you that it’s time to get analytical (but lazy) System 2 more active to slow the impulsive System 1 and make better decisions. This is a great, quick read for anyone interested in brain function and research.
