Recommended Reading: Thinking Fast and Slow

thinkingfastslowlg.jpgTHE NEW YORK TIMES called Nobel Prize winner Daniel Kahneman's book Thinking Fast and Slow, "an astonishingly rich book: lucid, profound, full of intellectual surprises and self-help value."

At VisualDx, we consider the way humans, especially clinicians, think and solve problems every day. In readingThinking Fast and Slow, you'll learn how we can be influenced by fast intuitions and unconscious biases rather than slow, deliberate reasoning.

That can be a critical misstep in the medical field when making a diagnosis. As we learned from the Institute of Medicine's recent report, "Most people will experience at least one diagnostic error in their lifetime, sometimes with devastating consequences." We hope you'll join us in reading Thinking Fast and Slow and share your thoughts on our Facebook page.
