Kahneman unearths how these discrepancies, or "noise," affect various domains - from medicine and law to economic forecasting.

As a guiding star, "Noise" offers insights to recognize and curtail these incongruities, ensuring decisions are consistent and fair.

Kahneman dives into the human psyche and societal systems, identifying the unconscious biases, unique personal experiences, and systemic factors that produce "noise." With his distinctive blend of humor and depth, he traverses a fascinating journey of real-life case studies, intertwining them with a broader understanding of human nature. It's not just a revelation of pitfalls in our judgment but an invitation to grasp the tools to rectify them.

"Hey there, think of the last time you bought a tub of ice cream. Did you ever wonder why two different scoops, from the same tub, can taste subtly different?

'Noise' invites us on a quest to understand these differences, ensuring we don't end up with a melted mess of decisions!
