Description - The Undoing Project by Michael Lewis

From the No. 1 bestselling author of The Big Short and Flash Boys, the surprising and profound story of Daniel Kahneman and Amos Tversky- the two men whose ideas changed the world.

'There are geniuses who work on their own. Together, we are exceptional.' Daniel Kahneman and Amos Tversky met in war-torn 1960s Israel. Both were gifted young psychology professors- Kahneman a rootless son of holocaust survivors who saw the world as a problem to be solved; Tversky a voluble, instinctive blur of energy. In this breathtaking new book, Michael Lewis tells the story of how their unlikely friendship became one of the greatest partnerships in science - until, tragically, it started to unravel. Their ideas, shows Lewis, helped shape our world - revolutionising everything from Big Data to medicine, money to sport - and changed humankind's view of its own mind.

Author Biography - Michael Lewis

Michael Lewis's global bestselling books lift the lid on the biggest stories of our times. They include Flash Boys, a game-changing expose of high-speed scamming; The Big Short, which was made into a hit Oscar-winning film; Moneyball, the story of a maverick outsider who beat the system; and Liar's Poker, the book that defined the excesses of the 1980s. Many of the ideas from these bestsellers underpin his latest book, The Undoing Project, which is the result of years of research. Michael Lewis was born in New Orleans and educated at Princeton University and the London School of Economics. He is contributing writer for The New York Times magazine and writes for Vanity Fair and Portfolio magazine.
