Thinking Fast and Slow ...in 30 minutes is the essential guide to quickly understanding the important lessons on decision-making outlined in the New York Times best seller Thinking Fast and Slow.

In Thinking Fast and Slow author Daniel Kahneman gets to the bottom of how to make good decisions and when to trust your intuition. Kahneman wants readers to avoid putting too much weight on acting quickly on their intuition when making decisions, as intuition is frequently colored by overconfidence and bias. He presents the concept of humans "thinking fast and slow"--the idea that human thought can be divided into two categories: slow and painstaking thought, and quick, intuitive thought. Through detailed research and real-life examples, Thinking Fast and Slow teaches readers when to apply each type of thought in order to improve everything from playing the stock market to increasing personal happiness. Thinking Fast and Slow will change the way you think and improve the quality of your decisions, both large and small.

Understand the key ideas of Thinking Fast and Slow in a fraction of the time, with tools such as:

  • A concise synopsis examining the principles of Thinking Fast and Slow
  • In-depth analysis of key concepts, including an explanation heuristics and biases, the two selves, and the two distinct thinking systems--the intuitive System 1, and the effortful System 2
  • Illustrative case studies demonstrating Kahneman's ground-breaking research in behavioral economics 
  • Real-world applications for applying the theories in Thinking Fast in Slow to everyday life
  • Critical reception to the work, highlighting important arguments by major publications and thought leaders
