There is no doubt that rational agent theory is considered the cornerstone of the microeconomic theory that makes many current policies. If we want to overcome the issues like how we can be happy in the future, the risks of working at home, and the effects of working in the stock market, we should have the ability to join the two systems’ judgments and decisions. 

Kahneman engages the raiders by his content and reveals how we can benefit from our slow thinking process alone and said that we could not trust our intuitions. He presented many practical examples in this book to understand how we can make choices in our business and personal lives. His objective is to kick out the glitches of the mind that often cause trouble for people. This book is meant to transform your way of thinking.
