Michael Lewis explains how he got started on his new book, The Undoing Project

Dec 12, 2016

Bestselling author Michael Lewis talks with Malcolm Gladwell about how got started on his new book, The Undoing Project: A Friendship that Changed Our Minds.

The book tells the story of two Israeli psychologists Daniel Kahneman and Amos Tversky, who wrote a series of breathtakingly original studies forty years ago undoing our assumptions about the decision-making process. Their work created the field of behavioral economics and revolutionized everything from Big Data studies to government regulation. It also made much of Michael Lewis’ own work possible.

Watch the full talk.
