's review

it was amazing

This was a fantastic book about psychology, economics, and statistics, and how we think - mostly intuitively, and our more methodical thinking is only used when our intuitive thinking is stumped or we consciously engage it. This results in some pretty systematic biases and can create some pretty silly decision making, even though our intuitive thinking usually works well. Kahneman does a great job of presenting detailed concepts with the right amount of explanation and demonstration. This is one of the better nonfiction works I've read.
