I wrote before that I have read this book and it is pure gold. True the article cannot do it justice. It does not even approach the phenomenon of "regression to the mean."

This book confirms the musings of Carl Sagan from the 70's in The Dragons of Eden: speculations on the evolution of human intelligence.

Kahneman's book should be required reading. It segregates the parts of the brain and their functions and examines how each contributes to the thinking process. 5 stars.
