's review

A Nobel economist pulls together decades of research in psychology for a big tome with a simple point. We have two brains, one impulsive and one analytical, but both always at work. Professor Kahneman dissects how we crave simplicity, familiarity, narrative, hunches, optimism and control. These things have helped us survive for millennia by allowing us to act without thinking. They still have us jumping to conclusions, but also making simple calculations more reliable than Big Data.
