"Thinking, Fast and Slow" by Daniel Kahneman is a lengthy, self-conscious and a challenging read but highly recommended if you’re interested in why human beings behave the way they behave. The theme of the book is simple, that is we humans not as rational as we imagine ourselves to be and our decisions are influenced by so many different things than we can ever imagine. "Thinking, Fast and Slow" is all about how two systems — intuition and slow thinking — shape our judgment, and how we can effectively tap into both. Using principles of behavioral economics, Kahneman walks us through how to think and avoid mistakes in situations when the stakes are really high. If you're prone to making rash decisions that you sometimes regret — or feel too burned out to spend a lot of time weighing out the pros and cons of certain choices — this book is definitely worth checking out.
