I don't know how proper this is, but I'm quite cheap and like a bargain, and I've seen Lehrer referred to a number of times here. I hadn't read Kahneman before, but bought the kindle version and read him on my phone whenever I had some wait time somewhere.

It's better than a mokeskin pouch! I can have the top *thousand* books I'm reading on me at all times, and just pull one out anywhere! I never have to waste another minute of my life!

I don't like spam anymore than anyone else, but I'm going to be getting it cheap, and I just want everyone else who wants it to get it cheap too. It's okay to spam people about cheap books, right? That's a family tradition.

I've started reading it. Maybe it picks up, but I'm getting tired of the blah blah blah anecdotes, and all the pontificating about how philosophy has elevated reason over emotion. I get it - can we move on?

Kahneman's book was much more concise and to the point. Maybe because Hahneman is actually a scientist with decades of experience to draw from, instead of a journalist?

It says $2.99 for me. (If saying "99 cents" was Dark Arts, it worked.)

I don't know anything about this book, but I upvoted based on the way you wrote this post ^_^

thanks for the heads up.
