The Undoing Project: A Friendship That Changed Our Minds

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 Tverskys 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 Lewiss own work possible. In The Undoing Project, Lewis shows how their Nobel Prizewinning theory of the mind altered our perception of reality....

The Undoing Project: A Friendship That Changed Our Minds Reviews

  • Don Gorman

    (1 1/2) Double expresso....check. Red Bull....check. Adderall....check. Make sure you have all these ingredients close by when you take on this book. It will require all your concentration to not zone out as you are reading it. Yes, there is some interesting stuff in here, but you have to fight for it. Most of Lewis's other books have had popular themes or stories that kept you going and engaged the entire time. This one does not. It is a tricky read.

    “In the end, peace can be achieved only by hegemony or by balance of power.” ~ Henry Kissenger

    Michael Lewis clearly has a reverence for this friendship. So do I. They are two men who brought me to thinking more probabilistically and why I chose my own academic focus. Who wouldn’t want to read about the platonic and professional love Daniel Kahneman and Amos Tversky shared, so strong that their wives were intensely jealous. These two men would go on to change how we think about economics, psychol

    O novo livro de Michael Lewis, autor do enorme sucesso “Moneyball” (2003) passado a filme homónimo em 2011 com Brad Pitt, é uma montanha russa de emoções. Usando como tema de fundo a amizade entre dois cientistas que revolucionaram a psicologia, Lewis leva-nos a conhecer o duo, dando conta de toda a sua genialidade sem descurar todas as fragilidades humanas. As páginas viram-se por si porque Lewis conta como poucos sabem contar uma boa história. É verdade que embeleza, que temos de ir colocando ...more

    “He suggested a new definition of the nerd: a person who knows his own mind well enough to mistrust it.”

    Tversky Intelligence Test: "The faster you realized Tversky was smarter than you, the smarter you were."

    I love Michael Lewis. His ability for finding an idea that is centered on a person and then telling that person's story is phenomenal. He isn't the only one that does it. John McPhee is a master at this angle (perhaps

    It is a testament to Michael Lewis' writing that chunks of the psychological research featured in this book were beyond my comprehension, and yet I still enjoyed reading it.

  • Conor

    The story of Daniel Kahneman and his erstwhile companion Amos Tversky, and their creation of the field of behavioral economics. This was informative and quirky--these guys kind of propounded all of these very provocative and innovative theories on their own!--but also very poignant and sad. I won't spoil it, but Amos really disappointed me with his calcifications toward the end. I don't know that it's fitting that Kahneman wound up winning the Nobel while Tversky did not, but hopefully it provid ...more

    As an expert on human relationships you'd think I would have seen all kinds. I haven't and this book illustrates a precious relationship I suspect all of us would love. Amos Tversky and Danny Kahneman had a one in a billion relationship. Amos may have been in the top one percent in intelligence of everyone who has yet lived and Danny wasn't far behind. Daniel Kahneman is the only psychologist ever to have won the Nobel Prize (in economics, no less). Amos had died before the Nobel was awarded, o ...more

    Only Michael Lewis could make the story of an academic partnership and psychology exciting. Tracking the work of maverick Amos Tversky and dreamer Danny Kahneman; reporting their service in Israel's early wars; explaining their mind-changing insights. Lewis brings together these stories into a grand narrative that has its own urgency and compels the reader onwards.

    Read on. And change your mind.
