Professor Daniel Kahneman

In this now famous book, Nobel Prize-winner Professor Daniel Kahneman explores the way the human mind works, and how it affects our decision-making. Examining the so-called two ways of thinking - fast, intuitive thinking, and slow, rational thinking - he explains how our brains can be tripped up by errors and prejudices, even when we think we are being rational.

Summarising the latest psychological research on human judgement, Kahneman provides practical techniques for slower, smarter thinking, which he believes leads to better decision-making.

In listing research, EdCentral makes no judgment or recommendation as to its quality, validity or methodology and none should be inferred. Through peer ratings left by education practitioners, EdCentral’s aim is to support the development of a repository of shared knowledge and experience.
