Join us as we discuss Thinking Fast and Slow by Daniel Kahneman. "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." We look forward to seeing you and hearing your thoughts.
Note: The fee for the Meetup covers food, drinks and administrative costs.
The UX Book Club NYC has been in existence since 2008. We meet every two months to engage in in lively, in-depth discussions of books with the potential for making an impact on the way we think and work in our field.
We’re also a social club interested in building community among like-minded folks hungry for ideas and good talk. We believe in the concept of sharing diverse perspectives as a way toward enhancing personal practice and promoting greater community understanding. No matter your role, the club will provide an opportunity to engage in conversation and learning across disciplines. We read books which span subjects within our field as well as those that bring concepts and ideas from other disciplines including: the strategy and business of design, design theory and history, methodologies and process, experience research and the ethics of UX professionals.
The UX Book Club NYC is part of a collective of UX Book Clubs that have formed in over fifty cities worldwide since November of 2008. For more information about the larger club, please visit the wiki: http://uxbookclub.org/doku.php. Meanwhile, if you’re interested in reading, good talk and learning about new ideas, please join us!
