About Thinking, Fast and Slow by Daniel Kahneman:
Nobel Prize–winning psychologist Daniel Kahneman explores the mysteries of intuition, judgment, bias, and logic in the international bestseller Thinking, Fast and Slow. His award-winning book explains the different ways people think, whether they’re deciding how to invest their money or how to make friends.
Kahneman’s experiments in behavioral economics, in collaboration with cognitive psychologist Amos Tversky, led to a theory of two systems of thought: the fast thinking used when ducking a blow, and slow thinking that’s better employed for making major life decisions.
Applying these psychological concepts to different facets of our lives, Kahneman demonstrates how to better understand your own decision-making, and the choices made by others.
The summary and analysis in this ebook are intended to complement your reading experience and bring you closer to great work of nonfiction.

Quotes

    The sunk-cost fallacy is a related issue in which a plan that should be abandoned is pursued because no one wants to admit defeat.

    You may not know that you are optimistic about a project because something about its leader reminds you of your sister, or that you dislike a person who looks vaguely like your dentist. If asked for an explanation, however, you will search your memory for presentable reasons and will certainly find some. Moreover, you will believe the story you make up

    Another common System 1 error is mistaking plausibility for probability.
