really liked it

** spoiler alert ** Wow! Took me a bit to finish this book. Good introduction into economics and behavior. I suggest getting the hard copy version versus the electronic version as the electronic version did not give you what page you are on.

Kahneman goes into great detail on how decisions are made by people. Without much spoilers he defines our decision making into two system. One is a "quick", gut-decision, the other is more thought out "slower" decision. Kahneman goes into details of the pros and cons of each.

This is a good book for economics and statistics majors who want to take a look at the research behind how decisions are made and their pros and cons.
