Introduction to Heuristics.
March 23, 2014 5:50 PM   Subscribe

Searching for book recommendations.

I've done some light googling on heuristics, enough to know that I would like to know more. What are good introductions to the subject? I'm more interested in general human behavior than say, economics, but if it had to be more narrow topic, legal. I'm looking for something in between gladwellian pop science and a $120 textbook.

Thinking, Fast and Slow by Daniel Kahneman might be what you're looking for.

I came in here also to recommend Kahneman's book. He won a Nobel Prize for his work in the field.
