Book Review: Thinking, Fast and Slow

I finished this book a few weeks ago and have struggled with how to write a review. Thinking, Fast and Slow by Daniel Kahneman is the most epic self-help book I have ever read. It’s also different in the fact that there is no “do this or that to live a better life” type advise, but simply over 400 pages of examples of hour your brain can fail you in so many situations. That lead probably doesn’t inspire you to pick up this thick tome and commit to absorbing the knowledge within, but this is seriously an extremely important piece of work. If you are a knowledge worker and consider solving problems a primary job function, there is no excuse to ignore this book.

Book Review: The Checklist Manifesto

I thought I would try something new for this post, a book review.

I recently read The Checklist Manifesto: How to Get Things Right and it was one of the best non-fiction books I have ever read. That’s the short of it. Go read the book.

If you are still not convinced, here is a bit more about the book and why I feel it’s a top read for anyone who thinks this blog is even slightly interesting. This is a paragraph from the Introduction.
