About Thinking Fast and Slow:
Best-selling author and Nobel Prize winner Daniel Kahneman's purpose in his book, Thinking Fast and Slow, is to bring within the grasp of everyday understanding the power of psychology, perception, illogical thinking, irrationality, and behavioral economics. Arguably Kahneman's most famous publication, the book summarizes research that he has conducted over decades and decades. Inside, Kahneman explains how we, as humans, often think and behave irrationally due to faulty intuition, biases, and erroneous mental shortcuts and how these patterns of thought can hold us back.
Please note that this summary is not the original book and is meant to be heard as a supplement to the original.

By far the best of the summaries
Since I'm going to teach Thinking Fast and Slow in a college class, I read the book itself and then listened to all the summaries available on Audible. Without doubt, this is the best - in fact, it's the only one worth using. The others present a chapter-by-chapter summary that's useless if not misleading, since what's said about each chapter consists of a few sentences taken out of context by someone who doesn't seem to have understood the book. By contrast, this summary, organized by topic, gives a sensible and accurate summary of the book's main points. If my students want to cheat by reading a summary, this is the only one that could possibly do them any good.

Very brief but what I wanted
If you already have an idea of this topic and want to find out quickly what Kahneman says, this doesn’t seem to be a bad option. Caveat is that I never read the book but I liked the synopsis from here and feel like I got the key points.
