What a mind-bending ride.

This book took me awhile to read, largely because I spent a lot of time pondering the practical implications of what I'd just read and how to change my approach to thinking as a result. Kahneman, a renowned psychology researcher, presents us with a tour de force examination of the most intriguing principles by which our minds work.

I knew that we humans are far less rational in our thinking than we give ourselves credit for, and how "knowing" something isn't necessarily knowing it, but Kahneman forced me to confront just how susceptible I am to all kinds of biases, bad judgments, and cognitive illusions. Meeting "the stranger" in me, who may be in control of much of what I do, was both disconcerting and fascinating.
