Marc Andreessen's Review:

Thinking, Fast and Slow by Daniel Kahneman -- Captivating dive into human decision making, marred by inclusion of several/many? psychology studies that fail to replicate. Will stand as a cautionary tale? https://twitter.com/degenrolf/status/832484413602553856?lang=en … https://www.amazon.com/Thinking-Fast-Slow-Daniel-Kahneman/dp/0374533555 …

Ron Conway's Review:

Summarizes research that he conducted over decades, often in collaboration with Amos Tversky. It covers all three phases of his career: his early days working oncognitive bias, his work on prospect theory, and his later work on happiness.

Richard H Thaler's Review:

“Thinking, Fast and Slow” by Daniel Kahneman. Thaler calls Kahneman, a fellow University of Chicago professor, one of his mentors and this book a “natural companion to ‘Misbehaving.’ ” Thaler has his own Kahneman story, of when Kahneman was asked about Thaler and called “lazy” his best attribute. (Thaler pleads guilty to laziness but questions whether that should top the list.)

Sam Altman's Review:

For the question "What are some of the best books to learn from that you recommend for a young startup founder?", I decided to transcribe these books.

Derek Sivers's Review:

If you liked “Predictably Irrational” or “Stumbling on Happiness” or any of those pop-psychology books, well, this is the Godfather of all of their work. Huge thorough book gives a great overview of much of his work. Read the other quotes on Amazon about it.
