Thinking, Fast and Slow by Daniel Kahneman from Farrar, Straus & Giroux, from $12-15 at Amazon and there is an Audiobook version!
Kahneman, a winner of the Nobel in economic science, discusses how we make choices in business and personal life and when we can and cannot trust our intuitions. This is the latest entry from the burgeoning field of "behavioral economics," and is my followup to the interchange between Tom Chancellor and me on the pre-eminence of reason in our choices. Reviews in The Guardian: http://www.guardian.co.uk/books/2011/de ... l-kahneman, and the NYT Sunday Book Review: http://www.nytimes.com/2011/11/27/books ... wanted=all. From the latter:

In 2002, Daniel Kahneman won the Nobel in economic science. What made this unusual is that Kahneman is a psychologist. Specifically, he is one-half of a pair of psychologists who, beginning in the early 1970s, set out to dismantle an entity long dear to economic theorists: that arch-rational decision maker known as Homo economicus....Human irrationality is Kahneman’s great theme.
