I'm enjoying the book so far, but have a long ways to go.

Thinking Fast and Slow

I'm am halfway through Daniel Kahneman's new book Thinking Fast and Slow.

It is nothing short of brilliant.  You must read this book!

(Kahneman, a psychologist, won a Nobel in Economics.  Partially an intellectual memoir, it is brilliant, illuminating (and also has some nice elegiac passages about his late collaborator, Amos Tversky.)  It reads like a conversation with your favorite uncle who happens to be brilliant and who won a Nobel prize by inventing an entirely new field.

Here is Michael Lewis's Vanity Fair article on the book:

This is the link I was talking about. http://www.nytimes.com/2011/10/23/magazine/dont-blink-the-hazards-of-confidence.html?pagewanted=all

Fascinating article. I have often observed that my favorite people after which to model my own behavior are those with loads of humility coupled with above average results. People with the sense to be humble are often the ones who learn / adapt most readily even when they are highly accomplished.

I know. After i wrote it, I tried to kill the message, but the system would not let me.

This book looks interesting. I have too many damn books on my reading list and not enough time, but I'll add this one to the list.

I've had to learn to live with this problem for a while now.
Someone needs to disable my Amazon account until I work my way through my current reading list. It's starting to get ridiculous. But I somehow always get excited and order a new one.
