So can you come up with an original sentence right now and tell it to me?
So I've gotten Thinking, Fast and Slow by Daniel Kahneman a while back at the suggestion of someone, and I'm on chapter 4 right now (image related) And its really getting difficult to stay in into it, The book is supposed to be about how thinking processes work an the types they are separated into, but even this early into it there is so much just wild swinging around.
