Not being a psychologist, I like Thinking, Fast and Slow. Kahneman explains in a clear way his research and findings. The chapters are well chosen and compact. However, reading all experiments requires, according to me, some persistence to continue. Personally I liked the statistics but I can imagine not everybody does. All in all an interesting book about a topic I rarely know.
