The Undoing Project: A Friendship That Changed Our Minds

Rating: 4/5

The Undoing Project by Michael Lewis details the friendship and prolific work history of two Isreali psychologists – Daniel Kahneman, a Nobel Prize winner, and Amos Tversky. Over many decades, the two made many discoveries and proposed new frameworks on judgement and decision making. They were a huge force in inventing the field of behavioral economics that is so popular today including many of the mental biases and fallacies like conjunction, anchoring, and recency. Lewis walks through many of their scientific findings while also highlighting the highs and lows of the partnership.
