The undoing project

The undoing project / Michael Lewis, 362 pgs.

The history of behavioral economics starts with two Israeli psychologists.  This book tells the story of the amazing collaboration between two genius psychologists who spent years together just talking and developing some of the most influential theories about decision making.  Amos Tversky and Daniel Kahneman had a relationship that overshadowed even their marriages when you reflect on the depth of their collaborations and long term relationship.  This book talks about their history and their extraordinary work.

As always, I savored every word.  Michael Lewis has a way of making you care DEEPLY about everything he writes about by choosing the best information, the best words, and the most interesting topics.
