Kahneman with more jokes and less pain

Daniel Kahneman’s Thinking, Fast and Slow is one of those things you just have to read. But no time to read, or you just can’t face a 500 page book? There was a superb event in November 2011 at the CUNY Graduate Center which sums up most of his work and life, and there’s a video available for free on the web. David Brooks interviewed Kahneman on stage for about an hour. I was fortunate to see it in person.

Kahneman is self-deprecating and witty. And he also has an amazing life story, including narrowly evading capture as a Jew in Nazi-occupied France during the Second World War. It might not be primetime entertainment (no car chases or reality tv prizes) but it is definitely worth watching.
