THE UNDOING PROJECT by Michael Lewis, Penguin/Random House.
Michael Lewis brought the madness of human decision-making to the masses in his best-selling books Moneyball and The Big Short, both of which were turned into blockbuster films. He’s the master of making complex information not only easy to understand, but also rollickingly entertaining. Here Lewis goes back to where it all started, with two Israeli geniuses devoting their lives to studying the irrational ways that seemingly rational people make decisions. Amos Tversky was confident, optimistic and outspoken, Daniel Kahneman a pessimist, eager to please and serious. Their intellectual love affair changed the way markets and public policy makers designed the world. You’ll also find out how you’ve been making decisions based on all the wrong reasons.
