Preview of this summary:



In this book Daniel Kahneman hopes to identify and understand errors of judgment and choice. He wants to provide a richer and more accurate vocabulary to discuss these errors. He worked with his colleague, Amos Tversky, doing research on intuitive statistics. The two of them had already concluded in an earlier seminar that their own intuitions were lacking. Their subjective judgments were biased, they were too willing to believe research findings based on inadequate evidence, and they collected too few observations in their own research. The goal of their study was to find out whether other researchers had this problem as well.

Kahneman and Tversky found that participants in their studies ignored the relevant statistical facts and relied exclusively on resemblance. They used resemblance as a heuristic (rule of thumb) to simplify things when making a difficult judgment. Relying on this heuristic caused predictable biases (systematic errors) in their predictions. The research partners learned that people tend to determine the importance of issues by how easy they are retrieved from their memory. This is brought about in large part by the extent of coverage of the issues in the media.

Kahneman presents a view of how the mind works, drawing on recent developments in cognitive and social psychology. He explains the differences between fast (intuitive) thinking and slow (deliberate) thinking. People have a limitation in their minds: an excessive confidence in what they think they know...

HASH(0x96c8fdec) étoiles sur 5 A discussion on the error of our ways. 9 avril 2014
Par Christine - Publié sur
Format: Format Kindle Achat vérifié
Much is said about not making the same mistakes twice, how we should learn from them, and as long as we do we'll make better decisions the next time around.
I've always believed that to be true. I still do, for the most part, but reading the summary of Thinking, Fast and Slow caused me to dig a little deeper into the WHY we make mistakes. Especially when that little voice in our head chimed in during the decision-making process and said, "I think this is a stupid idea", and we did it anyway.

The reason, according to author Daniel Kahneman, is basically because we're lazy when it comes to deliberate thinking. For simplicity, he divides the brain into two parts and calls them "System 1" and "System 2". System 1 is intuitive and fast. System 2 is measured and slow. Can you guess which side gets us into the most trouble? You got it, System 1.

He gives a simple comparison. Looking at a photo is System 1; it's fast because we see what we want based on our experiences. Looking at a math problem is System 2; it's slow because it involves effort. System 1 and 2 are interactive, but System 1 is usually a greater influence.

Do not despair. As much trouble as Fast thinking causes, it is also responsible for the Fight or Flight instinct. So, it's been keeping us from extinction all these years. This, depending on who you ask, is a great thing.

I realize his explanation is all subjective and you can either call it nonsense or genius, but I will say I had many a Eureka moment when I was reading. It gave me a lot to think about (slowly) and I truly enjoyed it. I recommend for anyone wanting to learn more about how we process thoughts and ideas.

HASH(0x94eedfa8) étoiles sur 5 reasonable summary of book contents but bizarre critique 10 août 2014
Par Skeptical Reader - Publié sur
Format: Format Kindle Achat vérifié
I so much enjoyed the original book by Kahnrman, that I bought this 30 minute summary to help remember the main points. The summary does a reasonable job of that, however the final critique completely misses one of the principal strengths of Kahneman's book. Using the device of System 1 and System 2, Kahneman's avoids the immense neuroscience problem of explaining the Anatomic or physiologic basis of the mind. I found Kahneman's book very refreshing and helpful in thinking about how we think.

HASH(0x995f90cc) étoiles sur 5 Really useful summary, but has some weird narration errors and editorial choices 12 avril 2015
Par Hilary Mayhew - Publié sur
Format: Format Kindle Achat vérifié
Overall, I found this summary extremely useful, and being able to get it on Audible was perfect. I'm in grad school and wanted to review Thinking Fast and Slow but haven't had time to read the whole book. The summary did make me want to buy the book, so I could get more examples to help me remember the principles the author describes (obviously this summary gives the "bullet points" and not a lot of illustrative examples). I give the content of the book 4.5 stars. For the format though, I found the recording quality a little inconsistent (volume not always stable. It maybe have been an Audible problem, but it also seems to cut out/skip some words).

And two things that made me crazy/annoyed and lowered my opinion of the Instaread Summaries experience--
30sec summary:
1. The words "causal" and "casual" are very different words, and the narrator seems not to recognize this, which really skews the meaning in some parts. I'd expect more narration precision in such a concise book, especially when misreading significantly impacts the concept being discussed.

2. There's a random negative review of the full-length book at the end of the summary, which seems out of place and ethically questionable.

1. The narrator appears not to know the word "causal" as in, cause and effect. Over and over again, he says "casual," as in, not very serious. "Causal thinking" and "casual thinking" mean very very different things. The author is talking about how it's a human tendency to think in terms of cause-and-effect even when the occurrence of certain events happens just by random chance. The narrator is making it sound like people are not taking events seriously. In such a condensed format where every word counts, and where I don't have the words in front of me to double-check, reading the correct word aloud seems important!

2. The critique at the end of the book seemed really out of place. In the summary, it says in print somewhere that it's an "unofficial summary and we encourage you to purchase the full-length book." Yet at the end of the summary, there is this weird rant, introduced as a "Customer perspective" about how no one should like the book. Why is that necessary or sensical? If it were adding corrections/updates/counter-evidence to the science or something, I might understand that, but it's just some guy's largely negative opinion. If the goal is to help the reader decide whether or not to buy the full book, why not include various reviews? Or is it just a weird ploy to try to convince people that reading a full-length book is a waste of time, so they'll buy another summary of a different book instead? Like I said, weird.

HASH(0x94d8f81c) étoiles sur 5 Great summary! 8 avril 2014
Par T. Neal - Publié sur
Format: Format Kindle Achat vérifié
At the heart, it compares human intuition with rational thinking.The theory on influences of the preconditioning on the mind (priming as the author calls it) and how it subtly and unconsciously affects the decision making process is revealing and shocking.Makes you think about how the most versatile creation of God actually thinks/ behaves/responds to different situations in life. Highly recommend it.

HASH(0x94cade94) étoiles sur 5 Fast Thinking or Slow Thinking? You Decide 10 avril 2014
Par Vania M. - Publié sur
Format: Format Kindle Achat vérifié
I had been wanting to read Daniel Kahneman's book "Thinking, Fast and Slow" for a while but couldn't carve out the necessary time to give it my full attention. When I noticed the Instaread Summary of it I felt it was the perfect way to get the gist of it-and I was not disappointed. This was a truly brilliant, interesting read. Kahneman talks about how we essentially have two different mental processes which he calls system 1: the intuitive, fast mind and system 2: the slow, rational mind. He talks about how system 1 can often times be wrong because it tends to be more impulsive and sees what it wants to see and system 2 thinks much more carefully and slowly. However, he also describes how system 1 is responsible for the fight or flight response and serves an important purpose. Kahneman has many interesting conclusions about both systems; this was another great Instaread Summary.
