Publisher Description

“Brilliant. . . . Lewis has given us a spectacular account of two great men who faced up to uncertainty and the limits of human reason.” —William Easterly, Wall Street Journal

Forty years ago, Israeli psychologists Daniel Kahneman and Amos Tversky wrote a series of breathtakingly original papers that invented the field of behavioral economics. One of the greatest partnerships in the history of science, Kahneman and Tversky’s extraordinary friendship incited a revolution in Big Data studies, advanced evidence-based medicine, led to a new approach to government regulation, and made much of Michael Lewis’s own work possible. In The Undoing Project, Lewis shows how their Nobel Prize–winning theory of the mind altered our perception of reality.

A life-changing book

It’s rare to find a book that resonates so powerfully and effectively to oneself - subconsciously enhancing our ability to see beyond the norm. Sparking creativity, insight, a needed understanding of purpose, thought, plans, ideas, that may well be lying subconsciously within ourselves. This book is powerful. It provided me direction to see deeper into relationships, to my work, to life, to my individual intentions and aspirations, that I know I am capable of, but never considered. The narrative, the story, Michael Lewis beautifully illustrates throughout this book, can create a new life beyond what we think we are capable of obtaining. Read it all the way through and hopefully you too, shall agree.

A story of friendship

For those interested in Amos and Danny’s work, read Thinking Fast, Thinking Slow. For those interested in a story of friendship, read this book. Amos and Danny are two different people whose minds work as one. The bravado of one earned him accolades the shyer one envied, and ultimately tore them apart. Death brought them back together.

As usual, Micheal Lewis writes engaging prose that seamlessly blends this story of friendship with the complex psychology that bound it together.
