The ideas of Daniel Kahneman and Amos Tversky were first introduced to me a couple of years back when I was studying psychology. Back then we were discussing biases and how they affect our behaviour and decisions. I was immediately amazed – the emphasis on decisions was interesting and the complexity that lies behind decision-making is truly fascinating.
So, I was very happy when I found Kahneman’s book Thinking, Fast and Slow. It deals with some of the very basics of human functioning; our thinking patterns and modes of decision-making.
