Thinking, Fast and Slow | Daniel Kahneman

The world in our heads is not a precise replica of reality; our expectations about the frequency of events are distorted by the prevalence and emotional intensity of the messages to which we are exposed.

Thinking, Fast and Slow | Daniel Kahneman

We are far willing to reject the belief that much of what we see in life is random.

The attributes ‘equal‘, ‘greater‘, and ‘less‘ are not applicable to infinite, but only to finite quantities.

In algebra the mind is first taught to consider general truths, truths which are not asserted to hold only of this or that particular thing, but of any one of a whole group of things. It is in the power of understanding and discovering such truths that the mastery of the intellect over the whole world of things actual and possible resides; and ability to deal with the general as such is one of the gifts that a mathematical education should bestow

We perceive the world of objects as essentially separate from the world of minds, making it possible for us to envision soulless bodies and bodiless souls.

Intelligence is not only the ability to reason; it is also the ability to find relevant material in memory and to deploy attention when needed.

In the economy of action, effort is a cost, and the acquisition of skill is driven by the balance of benefits and costs. Laziness is built deep into our nature.

Like some other people mentioned, some chapters are more interesting than the others, and some chapters are just informative (without so much of arguments). But the author covers different aspects not only the « geographic » parts but cultural part for example, and I learned a lot (I like the Africa and the Middle East chapters); I enjoyed reading this book and I will try to read it again soon.

I am a foreigner living in Paris, I didn‘t speak French when I first arrived here. I totally agree with what he says about living in France as a foreign person and he explains it so well (even though it includes some stereotypes repeatedly said by other people already). His writing is funny and very easy to understand so it is also a good way to practice French-reading-skill.

I read this book when I was 10 and this is still one of my favorite books. This is a romantic comedy type of book rather than a children‘s book. I will try read the original book in English soon.

I enjoyed reading this book. Kaku talks about not only the scientific/physics part of our future-escaping-from-earth-possibilities but also how humans would need to entertain ourselves on the way to another planet for example, which, I think, makes his approach more « global » and « realistic » in a way. This is irrelevant to his field but I‘d love to know how he thinks about saving the planet with our technologies instead of escaping from it.
