Thinking Fast and Slow, KahnemanThinking Fast and Slow, Kahneman
 
Although a feeling of awe at the capability of humans is clearly justified, there is a large difference between a deep sense of admiration and the assumption that our reasoning abilities are perfect.
 
We are not only irrational, but predictably irrational—that our irrationality happens the same way, again and again.
 
Daniel Kahneman is a psychologist notable for his work on the psychology of judgment and decision-making, in particular how human nature's natural bias affect our judgment and decisions, for which he was awarded the 2002 Nobel Prize. He is also knows for his work about happiness economics
 
 "Recognizing where we depart from the ideal is an important part of the quest to truly understand ourselves, and one that promises many practical benefits. Understanding irrationality is important for our everyday actions and decisions, and for understanding how we design our environment and the choices it presents to us."
