The Undoing Project

About the Book
This book is biographical and anecdotal and one of the greatest love stories you are going to read – not your boring run-of-the-mill “happily ever afters” but the forget-me-nots – the ones you always refer to in conversations. The book is an intimate look into the rapport between 2 great minds of our times – Amos Tversky and Daniel Kahneman both psychologists – who changed how we think about how we think.The book is an important one for novices and beginners in social sciences, medicine, law, business, philosophy and public policy. The Author of the book is Michael Lewis best known for his Moneyball and The Big Short – both of which are now movies. He has an undergraduate degree in art history and a Master’s in economics and I loved his writing style.
