really liked it

I am sure D.Kahneman simplified the narration of his research for the purposes of this book (or did he?), but I found his arguments to be less than perfectly critical on a variety of topics, especially those concerning finance. Did he really propose that skill plays no role in wealth managements finance, because there is no consistency in performance of fund managers over the long term? How about comparing them not against each other, but to a group of outsiders, or in fact himself. Nevertheless, this book sheds light onto the working of the human psychology, applicable not only to economics, but to everyday life as well, and does this in an incredibly structured and simple way. This is an incredible feat. Highly recommend but falls short of 5 stars for me.
