Thinking, Fast and Slow

After have read The Undoing Project I was investigating about some of the books published by Amos Tversky and Daniel Kahneman. Finally I found this essay named “Thinking, Fast and Slow”.thinking-fast-slow

This psychology essay goes chapter by chapter decomposing the different ways the mind works, doing it in plain English. Chapters are short and concentrated on an specific aspect and contains very good experiments that helps you to understand the human behavior.

I can see myself reflected on this analysis

I see so many of the things on myself and I see so many of these behaviors reflected on people when I see TV advertisement, when I see people on a supermarket, when I read newspaper, etc.
