's review

really liked it

The most important book in this day and age. A short glance across the many reviews I read about this book, I learned one thing - The exact point Mr. Kahneman makes through this book and that is, in-depth analysis takes time, effort, and more time but we are designed to be lazy. Probably because we have short life-spans and in navigating life, analyzing everything closely is inefficiency. Lazy System 1 is amazing - it's quick, and can be the difference between life and death. It's incredibly effective when used for what it was intended, which is not always. The 'not always' part of life is an equally significant part of our lives today and this needs the effortful system 2. A much recommended book.
