it was amazing

This book is a revelation. As you read page after page, you realise how less you know your own mind. The book changes the way you approach a situation and go about making key decisions. The author primarily talks about three concepts - how your mind is made up of two systems - 1&2, compares the functioning of Econs (rational agents) vis-a-vis humans and finally ends the book talking about the two selves within an individual - the experiencing and the remembering self. A must read for people interested in behavioral psychology. Opens your mind to some finer aspects of the functioning of human mind which was previously hiding from you!

Daniel Kahneman
“Odd as it may seem, I am my remembering self, and the experiencing self, who does my living, is like a stranger to me.”
