While experts have roundly debunked the popular notion that we feeble humans only utilize 10 percent of our brains, most of us still find ourselves secretly believing (or wishing) that there is uncharted territory upstairs to explore. As we get older, our brains - well, I don't want to speak for you, so I'll say my brain - increasingly fills with useless detritus; I will thus forget to buy a necessary item at the store, but will be able to sing along lyric-for-lyric with some old Def Leppard song during the drive home. Self-help books that promise to unlock your secret brainpower will mostly peddle you the same old platitudes. Where to turn when you want to take a serious tour through your own thought process? Daniel Kahneman's Thinking, Fast and Slow hit the bulls-eye for me. While not a self-help book by any traditional definition, Kahneman's work offers actionable insights about decision-making and gut reactions that did indeed help me to help myself. By breaking the brain into two separate - and sometimes competing - components ("System 1" and "System 2"), the author helps the reader recognize some very common pratfalls.
