Daniel Kahneman giver os i At tænke – hurtigt og langsomt et unikt indblik i den menneskelige bevidsthed og i de to systemer, som driver den måde, vi tænker på: System 1 er hurtigt, intuitivt og følelsesdrevet; System 2 er langsomt, rationelt og logisk. Ved at trække på erfaringerne fra eksperimenter foretaget gennem et helt liv afslører Daniel Kahneman, hvornår vi kan stole på den hurtige tænknings intuition, og hvordan vi kan drage fordel af den langsomme tænkning. Han giver praktisk og oplysende indsigt i, hvordan valg træffes i både vores professionelle og private liv – og hvordan vi kan bruge forskellige teknikker som værn mod de mentale faldgruber, der ofte skaffer os i vanskeligheder. At tænke – hurtigt og langsomt vil for altid forandre den måde, du oplever verden og træffer beslutninger på.

It is a book to recommend to your friends in industry – even to your bosses – but not to your competitors.
