Kahneman introduces two modes of thought - system 1, fast and intuitive, and system 2, slow and reasoned - and explores how these modes effect behavior, particularly judgement and decision making.

4 stars

A good overview of how humans are, sadly, stupid dumbasses who assume too much, jump hastily into conclusions, and are blind to even simple logic errors when considering their actions and options.

Kahneman tries to make the read light and interesting, but I can say that unless you have some inherent interest in the topic of human behavior or brains or comparable, this will be a hard or boring read.
