Thinking, Fast and Slow by Daniel KahnemanIn the highly anticipated Thinking, Fast and Slow, Kahneman takes us on a groundbreaking tour of the mind and explains the two systems that drive the way we think. System 1 is fast, intuitive, and emotional; System 2 is slower, more deliberative, and more logical. Kahneman exposes the extraordinary capabilities—and also the faults and biases—of fast thinking, and reveals the pervasive influence of intuitive impressions on our thoughts and behavior. The impact of loss aversion and overconfidence on corporate strategies, the difficulties of predicting what will make us happy in the future, the challenges of properly framing risks at work and at home, the profound effect of cognitive biases on everything from playing the stock market to planning the next vacation—each of these can be understood only by knowing how the two systems work together to shape our judgments and decisions.
Engaging the reader in a lively conversation about how we think, Kahneman reveals where we can and cannot trust our intuitions and how we can tap into the benefits of slow thinking. He offers practical and enlightening insights into how choices are made in both our business and our personal lives—and how we can use different techniques to guard against the mental glitches that often get us into trouble. Thinking, Fast and Slow will transform the way you think about thinking.
Outliers by Malcolm Gladwell FULL Audiobook
I only learned about Gladwell's dramatic embellishments long after first hearing him tell the tale on The Moth as I was Googling for the phrase "perverse and often baffling" that he recounts competing with his Washington Post colleague to insert into newspaper stories. The Moth is a storytelling show and it's a great rather harmless story, though I was sorry to learn that it was largely fabricated.
Put everything on hold and strap yourselves in for yet another incredible, and seriously Canadian episode of So You're Canadian with Dave Hill. Hosted by Dave Hill. From before. Anyway, in the show's fifth episode, Dave calls Danko Jones, frontman and namesake of rock band Danko Jones, to discuss being a native Torontonian, that time he got a postcard from Neil Peart, and how he lived with Broken Social Scene's Brendan Canning for four years. It doesn't get much more Canadian than this. Show notes.
Separating bunk from fact in Malcolm Gladwell’s performance at a New York storytelling forum.
Outliers By Malcolm Gladwell Complete Audiobook
In the story, Gladwell boasts about getting absurd phrases like "raises new and troubling questions" and "perverse and often baffling" into the Washington Post. Some people agreed with me, or at least wondered how a Canuck like Gladwell ended up on This American Life. Gladwell is back, not to defend himself for the charges of being Canadian, but to explain the story on his own blog :. There is a disclaimer at the end of the This American Life broadcast, to the effect that the Moth is a place where "people come to tell both true stories and occasional tall tales. I hope you enjoy it. But please do so with a rather large grain of salt. Gladwell has been telling the story of getting "perverse and often baffling" into the Washington Post for years.
