Book Summary Overview
In this New York Times best seller, Daniel Kahneman explains the two thought systems that influence the way people think and make decisions. A fast System 1 makes quick, automatic and often illogical reactions to situations, while a slow, deliberate System 2 questions the impressions and feelings of System 1 and makes a more analytical and rational assessment of situations. Thinking, Fast and Slow takes the listener through an enthralling exploration of the biases that influence reactions and choices. Kahneman’s groundbreaking research will change the way you think about your thought process.
Please note: This is a summary and analysis of Thinking, Fast and Slow and not the original book.

“One of my favorite apps. I drive alot and Audible lets me get through a ton of books. They are great about returning books I don’t like. I also love that I can put it on any device and pick up right where I left off.”
“Just wonderful, I never had time to read except in the 10 minutes before bed, by then I’m already falling asleep and have to re-read the next night as it didn’t retain. Now I can listen to books while travelling, doing the housework, getting ready for work each morning. I’m getting through all the books I’ve been meaning to read for years in just a couple of months.”
“Love, love, love it! Flexible listening options and a fantastic selection of audiobooks. Definitely recommend.”
