NOTE: Daniel Kahneman has written one of the most important books about thinking that have ever been published. It should be read and discussed throughout the Humanist Galaxy.

The first book analyzed here is [1] THINKING, FAST AND SLOW, which was published by Farrar, Straus and Giroux, 2013 (499 pages). It was an international bestseller, The popular psychologist and winner of the Nobel Prize in Economics, explains the two systems that drive the way we think. System 1 is fast, intuitive, and emotional; System 2 is slower, more deliberative, and more logical.

The impact of overconfidence on corporate strategies, the difficulties of predicting what will make us happy in the future, the profound effect of cognitive biases on everything from playing the stock market to planning our next vacation can all be understood by knowing how the two systems of thought shape our judgments and decisions.

The second book reviewed here is by Michael Lewis who wrote about the first book! [2] THE UNDOING PROJECT: a Friendship that Changed Our Minds, published by W. W. Norton & Company, 2017 (362 pages).
