Thinking, Fast and Slow, by Daniel Kahneman, Farrar, Straus, and Giroux, New York, 2011, 512 pp.

Review by:
Ralph Warton, M.D.

After dedicating a marvelous text to his colleague Amos Tversky, Emeritus Professor of Psychology at Princeton, Daniel Kahneman extensively and exhaustively reviews his profound knowledge about the biases of human intuition. He certainly qualifies as one of the most “influential psychologists in history”—by no less a distinguished colleague than Professor Steven Pinker.

Acting as a good “physician,” he diagnoses the limits of intelligence and notes the errors of choices and judgments in a variety of human situations—even at meetings of the Society of Mathematical Psychology.
