really liked it

Complex ideas as you would expect from this Nobel prize winner writing down for a popular audience. I found the the section on prospect theory hard going but the take away were the biases of what Kahneman calls System 1, things like the 'anchor effect' and 'framing'. His challenge to the rational agent economic model was glorious and the difference between the remembering self and the experiencing self made interesting reading.
