Bestselling author Michael Lewis examines how a Nobel Prize-winning theory of the mind altered our perception of reality in his new book 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 studies 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. Join him to explore their groundbreaking research and discover why most people overlook the data and go with their guts.
