Summary

The bible for bringing cutting-edge products to larger markets—now revised and updated with new insights into the realities of high-tech marketing 
In Crossing the Chasm, Geoffrey A. Moore shows that in the Technology Adoption Life Cycle—which begins with innovators and moves to early adopters, early majority, late majority, and laggards—there is a vast chasm between the early adopters and the early majority. While early adopters are willing to sacrifice for the advantage of being first, the early majority waits until they know that the technology actually offers improvements in productivity. The challenge for innovators and marketers is to narrow this chasm and ultimately accelerate adoption across every segment.  
This third edition brings Moore's classic work up to date with dozens of new examples of successes and failures, new strategies for marketing in the digital world, and Moore's most current insights and findings. He also includes two new appendices, the first connecting the ideas in Crossing the Chasm to work subsequently published in his Inside the Tornado, and the second presenting his recent groundbreaking work for technology adoption models for high-tech consumer markets.

    Renowned psychologist and winner of the Nobel Prize in Economics Daniel Kahneman shows us how the mind has two systems that drive how we think. In Thinking, Fast and Slow, the first system—System 1—is the fast, intuitive, and emotional system while the second system—System 2—is the slower, more deliberate, and logical system. Kahneman shows the impact of overconfidence in making decisions, the difficulties of predicting happiness in the future, and the profound effect of having cognitive biases. These can be understood based on how the two systems control our judgments and decisions.
     
    Kahneman shows us when our intuitions can be helpful and when it can’t as well as how we can get the benefits of slow thinking. He gives us practical insights into how we make our choices both in business and in our personal lives as well as what techniques we can use in order to protect ourselves against the lapses that can cause us trouble. Given the National Academy of Sciences Best Book Award, the Los Angeles Times Book Prize, and The New York Times Book Review as one of the ten best books of 2011, Thinking, Fast and Slow is a book that would certainly affect how we think and hows we live our lives.
