Our next book selection is "Thinking, Fast and Slow" by Daniel Kahneman. Because it is a long read, we decided to discuss it over next two book club meetings in July and August. In July, we will discuss the first two parts of the book.
In "Thinking, Fast and Slow," Kahneman takes us on a groundbreaking tour of the mind and explains the two systems that drive the way we think. System 1 is fast, intuitive, and emotional; System 2 is slower, more deliberative, and more logical. Kahneman exposes the extraordinary capabilities—and also the faults and biases—of fast thinking, and reveals the pervasive influence of intuitive impressions on our thoughts and behavior.
