This 512-page book, divided into five parts, describes profusely how the two systems of judgement can be understood and made to work together to our advantage in both professional and personal lives. The five parts of the book are titled as: Two Systems; Heuristics and Biases; Overconfidence; Choices; and Frames and Reality.
According to the author, as we navigate our lives, we normally allow ourselves to be guided by impressions and feelings, and the confidence we have in our intuitive beliefs and preferences is usually justified but not always. We are often confident even when we are wrong, and an objective observer is more likely to detect our errors than we are. And, the book tries to make readers objective about themselves.
It is a good book for managers, business people, and professionals as well as for people who wish to self-develop themselves consciously. This book seems to represent the current understanding of judgement and decision-making, which has been shaped by psychological discoveries of recent decades.
