Thinking, Fast and Slow by Daniel Kahneman

Thinking

A very detailed and interesting look at the way our brain functions and how we make decisions.  Quite heavy going in places – lots of examples and probability questions to go through. Unsurprisingly for a Nobel Prize winner this is detailed and thought out stuff not something jotted down on the back of an envelope. Kahneman references Nudge quite a bit for how to use some of these ideas on a practical level but it was nice to read this one too in order to see where many of these ideas first came from.
