Thinking Fast and Slow by Daniel Kahneman

Daniel Kahneman taught flight instructors in the Israeli Air Force that rewards for improved performance work better than punishment of mistakes. The more experienced flight instructors were not convinced. Their experience told them that screaming in the earphone of a cadet for bad execution led to better attempts the next time. In Thinking Fast and Slow, Kahneman gives a careful explanation of regression to the mean, helping readers understand that poor performance is typically followed by improvement…and that one’s experience may show correlation but not necessarily causation. Only by slowing down your thinking and paying close attention to the data can you gain a perspective to help test your intuitive knowledge. Thinking Fast and Slow provides a precise presentation about the inner workings of our thinking processes. Read a complete review at The Guardian.
