Thinking, Fast and Slow

"Thinking, Fast and Slow, Kahneman’s new and most accessible book, contains much that is familiar to those who have followed this debate within the world of economics, but it also has a lot to say about how we think, react, and reach—rather, jump to—conclusions in all spheres. What most interests Kahneman are the predictable ways that errors of judgment occur."                     

In 2002, Daniel Kahneman, an Israeli-American psychologist, won the Nobel Memorial Prize in Economic Sciences for his work on prospect theory.  This world renowned thinker's research is summarized in his book Thinking, Fast and Slow.
The WMCC lunchtime book discussion group will meet to talk about this remarkable work on May 9,  in Room 122 at noon.  Bring your lunch!

Copies of the books, and audios, are available in the library.
