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.
