    This nonfiction is unlike others Michael Lewis has offered us In this he tries the trick of explaining confusion by demonstrating confusion, but near the end of this work we appreciate again Lewis distinctive clarity and well developed sense of irony as he addresses a very consequential collaboration in the history of ideas Lewis did something else he d not done before as well By the end of this book I was bawling aloud, in total sync with what Lewis was trying to convey why humans do what we do [...]

    Being a baseball lover, one of my favorite books is Michael Lewis Moneyball where he follows the low budget 2002 Oakland A s during their remarkable, division winning season I found this book informative while also exploring the business of baseball What made this book special is that Lewis made baseball interesting for people who are not usual fans of the sport Lately I kept seeing reviews of Lewis new book The Undoing Project appear on my feed While economics usually bores me, I decided to rea [...]

    Originally reviewed in January, 2017After reading about this book, I pre ordered it, six months before its release date It s about the work of the psychologist Daniel Kahneman, who published Thinking, Fast and Slow in 2011 and his late collaborator, Amos Tversky Thinking, Fast and Slow had a big impact on me Moreover, The Undoing Project s author is Michael Lewis, of Moneyball and The Big Short fame That s about all I knew of him Around the book s release date there was a flurry of publicity int [...]

    This is a great story about two genius psychologists, Daniel Kahneman and Amos Tversky They did groundbreaking research that led to improved understanding of how we make decisions Although their personalities were total opposites, they found themselves enthralled with one another, and collaborated closely for fifteen years Kahneman grew up in France just before and during World War II His father helped his family narrowly escape from the grips of the Nazis over and over again After the war, he m [...]

    Amos Tversky and David Kahneman are psychologists who met in Israel in the 1960 s Though very different in personality, they became very close friends and went on to collaborate in producing a number of papers concerning what came to be known as behavioural economics or in layman s terms, the psychology of judgement and decision making In essence, they argued that departures in human rational thought can be predicted and its impacts calculated To demonstrate this, they concocted numerous scenari [...]

    I will be bold, and confidently tell you what this book is all aboutHumans making decisions are inherently handicapped by systematic biases that make them think they are being logical, but often, or possibly usually, are not And Mankind longs for certainty but we live in an inherently uncertain word.Man is a deterministic device thrown into a probabilistic Universe Kindle Locations 2619 2620.There, no need to read any or my review.BUT, I do ramble on, so here goes The two psychologists Amos Tve [...]

    First of all, I feel somewhat guilty about the rating Some parts of the book I liked very much Michael Lewis writes well but I believe he has fallen short here Lewis is best at setting up an underdog who beats the system in sports, the financial markets, etc He has attempted the same here about Tversky and Kahneman But reading about academics who challenge conventional wisdom in the field of psychology is less interesting than financial traders who short the mortgage market, or adoptive parents [...]

    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.

    He suggested a new definition of the nerd a person who knows his own mind well enough to mistrust it Michael Lewis, The Undoing Project A Friendship that Changed Our MindsTversky 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 THE master Lew [...]

    To start with the mundane and annoying for a book with this much technical content, terms, and names an index almost seems a necessity, yet none was provided More foot endnotes and perhaps a fuller bibliography would be helpful, too We must support the popularization of scholarly topics, and I ve read that it takes, on average, at least 20 years for new ideas, analyses, and discoveries to move out of the academic curriculum of higher education to what we teach our children in secondary schools I [...]

    This book is a major departure from Lewis s other books, of which I have read many He usually has a single narrative arc from beginning to end, which has served him well, but is missing in this book I was quite interested in the topic given I have read Thinking, Fast and Slow three times, which is chock full of insight and practical wisdom based on sophisticated research I found the Lewis book to be disorganized and rather a mess, unfortunately And though Lewis is obviously the better stylist, h [...]

    If Kahneman and Tversky were giving talks today, they d be YouTube TED talk stars While I first became acquainted with their work during business school, Lewis comprehensively outlines how their take on psychology has so profoundly affected the discipline of economically rational or not so rational man Anything published in the last fifteen years on the subject of decision making owes a debt to these two remarkable researchers.Tversky passed away before the Nobel prize was awarded for his work [...]

    I m a big fan of Michael Lewis, so when his new book was announced, I put myself on the waiting list for it at my public library I probably would have read anything he published, even another sports business book I haven t read any of those yet , but since it was about a pair of Israeli psychologists, I was especially intrigued Of course, I d heard of Daniel Kahneman s work before, but I d never read his famous Thinking, Fast and Slow I got my background from other books he and his partner Amos [...]

    I think my friend Andrew put this best only Michael Lewis could make this story exciting The only thing I can add to this is that I am now genuinely excited to read Daniel Kahneman s THINKING FAST AND SLOW, a book that it feels like a hundred people have tried to sell me on over the years and that I had, up until this moment, resisted Lewis is a master storyteller, and the way he plays with the tension of both this ideological partnership and the ideas themselves is truly impressive 4.5 stars.

    In the end, peace can be achieved only by hegemony or by balance of power Henry KissengerMichael Lewis clearly has a reverence for this friendship So do I They are two men who brought me to thinking 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, psychology, probabil [...]

    I enjoy a book or article that uses statistics and or facts to cause me to ponder things from a different perspective.

    1 1 2 Double expressok Red Bullk Adderallk 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.

    I think I need to read Kahenman s thinking,fast and slow to understand this book.I enjoyed some parts but overall the cause was lost for me

    When Psychology strapped on its parachute and dropped into the Kingdom of Economists, most of the natives rushed off to defend Rational Man from the attack of Emotionalists Then a curious thing happened When they considered emotions, the Economists found Rational Man human, likely to behave as people actually behaved Probabilities, utilities and even regret mattered less than did potential change from the status quo to these actors Michael Lewis narrates how it happened in this superb biograph [...]

    Michael Lewis, the author of Moneyball and The Big Short has an amazing ability to write fascinating books about subject matters that I normally find mind numbingly boring sports and the economy His talent lies in the ability to find people the outliers, the rebels, the freaks who have a unique perspective and new ways at looking at old problems Oftentimes, these people don t even know they have a new perspective on something They ve simply asked questions that nobody ever thought to ask.Lewis p [...]

    I loved learning about two very smart men.This is biographical about two men Daniel Kahneman DK and Amos Tversky AT There is a little about their backgrounds Most of this is about their work, discoveries, and interaction as adults They had a close partnership for about ten years That slowed down after they moved to the U.S and lived in different places.There were many fascinating ideas in this book I previously read the book Thinking, Fast and Slow by Daniel Kahneman Some of those ideas were als [...]

    I ve been captivated by other Michael Lewis books This one was a disappointment and a waste of my time.Lewis s books are all about the same kind of subject a set of men who are outsiders in some way have an insight, do things differently, and enjoy success scrupulous or otherwise in their fields.Kahneman and Tversky match this description, and they are definitely worthy subjects Their original research papers are far and away the most accessible and enjoyable I have ever read I hold onto my coll [...]

    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.

    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 provided clo [...]

    Not my favorite Michael Lewis effort indeed not even in my top three Lewis efforts but well worth reading The broad topic how the mind works or fails to work should interest most readers, particularly if they think they think rationally Potential spoiler alert but not really you don t think or behave as rationally as you think, and, as a group, humans surely don t behave as rationally as economists claim they should or do.Still, kudos to Lewis for telling and, ultimately, personalizing and, no d [...]

    Added 2 7 17 Published December 6th 2016 This book is fascinating I couldn t stop listening It s about the decision making process and how it was analyzed by two psychologists working together The two psychologists were Daniel Kahneman and Amos Tversky This book not only tells about their work but also about their lives, their personalities, and how they worked.Daniel Kahneman won the 2002 Nobel Prize in Economics.For an excellent and thorough review of the book, see the following review by memb [...]

    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, otherwise [...]
