Thinking, Fast and Slow by Daniel Kahneman
Israeli-American psychologist Daniel Kahneman takes us on a groundbreaking tour of the mind and explains the two systems that drive the way we think. System 1 is fast, intuitive, and emotional; System 2 is slower, more deliberative, and more logical. He engages the reader in a conversation bout how we think and reveals where we can trust our intuitions and how we can use our slow thinking more. This book will change the way you think about thinking.

Sapiens: A Brief History of Humankind by Yuval Noah Harari

100,000 years ago, at least six human species inhabited the earth. Today there is just one. Us. Homo sapiens. How did our species succeed in the battle for dominance? Why did our foraging ancestors come together to create cities and kingdoms? How did we come to believe in gods, nations and human rights; to trust money, books and laws; and to be enslaved by bureaucracy, timetables and consumerism? And what will our world be like in the millennia to come? Dr Yuval Noah Harari takes us through the whole span of human history and what things that have shaped our society. A must read!
