it was amazing
Read from June 07 to August 12, 2016

Are humans really rational? No we are not. Humans commit human mistakes; our brain is deceived by illusions (sometimes for our disadvantage and sometimes for our entertainment)

This book does not contain a very scientific explanation, even though it is written by Economic science Nobel Prize winner Daniel Kahneman. One can see it as a talk of the many adventures that he and his dear collage and friend had in order to know more about a mythical creature: the homo econos.

Kahneman does not fill the mind of the reader with statistical results of complicated experiments, what he does is to talk to the reader as a friend, and let him know the results of his (and other relevant scholars) results, with emphasis on the results and its application.
An entertaining book to read that would make you know something more when you finish it.
