If you have ever struggled making decisions, either shallow ones, like what restaurant to visit or what phone to buy, or deep ones, including what business to start, how to invest, where to live, or what career to choose, then Thinking Shallow and Deep gives you the tools to conquer your challenge. 

Though the title is a riff on Thinking, Fast and Slow by Daniel Kahneman, this book takes an entirely different approach based on real world decision challenges from the author's years in business, finance, and all areas of life. 

After you listen to Thinking Shallow and Deep, you will increase your decision speed, dramatically improve your rate of successful decisions in all areas from your professional to personal life, reduce your stress, and make decisions easily that work toward your long-term goals. 

There will be at least one, and probably multiple, life-improving tactics that you will not only learn, but actually use daily to create your best life from this groundbreaking guide. This is a book to buy for yourself and to give to your friends, family, business associates, and your children. 

For everyone that read/listened to Thinking, Fast and Slow and wanted concrete examples of real world decisions with and without using a process, or anyone who would like make better decisions, become faster at business decisions, personal decisions, relationship decisions, or improve self-esteem through decisions, Thinking Shallow and Deep is the guide you are looking for. 

Barry Kivni is the pen name for the author with more than 40 years of successful financial, business, and relationship decision-making experience. The tactics and concepts in Thinking Shallow and Deep are the basis for the author making an astounding number of correct predictions and early investment decisions including: 

Published in 1998: Commodities, especially gold and silver, will have a major bull market run from 1998-2007.

Published in 2007: Sell recommendation for gold and silver in 2008 at the top of that bull market run. 

Published in 2005: Real estate housing market crash in 2007. Sold all real estate at the exact month of the top of the market in my area in 2007. 

Written in 2011, published in early 2012:

1. Bitcoin will outperform all other financial assets for the next decade. 

2. Bitcoin will reach at least $83,000. When Bitcoin was about $200, this seemed like an insane prediction. Though Bitcoin has not yet reached $83,000, it has come close and almost certainly will soon. 

Published in 2016: Predicted Ukraine would be going to war around 2018. Correctly chose 10 of the top performing cryptocurrencies and overall financial investments from among 5000+ potentials. 

Published in Jan 2017: Cryptocurrency market crash. Correctly predicted the one crypto project that would rise even through the crash. Predicted stock market drop and the following major rise. 

Purchased rural farm land in 2006 predicting the eventual urban to rural and commodity cycle shift that has accelerated. 

Predicted mass migration back out of urban centers to rural or ex-urban starting around 2019 that has accelerated in 2020 onward. 

Published in 2019: Bitcoin market would bottom at $3,000-$3,500 and should be bought aggressively at that price.
