We make wrong decisions by “fast thinking,” to use Daniel Kahneman’s terminology from his book “Thinking, Fast and Slow.” It happens when we rely on what we know rather well and fit it like a square peg in a round hole.
Trial, Error, and Success shows how “slow thinking” comes naturally for skeptical minds. A focus on differences between knowledge from the past and reality is all it takes to avoid overgeneralization traps.
Using real-life examples, this engaging read shows how to create new knowledge by trial-and-error thinking, and how to reduce personal risk and maximize benefits by collective application of the trial-and-error process.
