The best and most important book I have ever read. Read it. It explains so much about humans and the illusions that we fall for (with total confidence no less). For many years I have read books and listened to talks repeatedly referencing Kahneman and Tversky. Finally Kahneman wrote the book himself. The book is comprehensive and delightful. Read it all at once or read it in sections - just read it.
