If you like Daniel Kahneman’s work, especially his book “Thinking, Fast and Slow”, you will absolutely love this book by Michael Lewis that delves into the background of his work. Brilliant piece of writing I enjoyed last year.      source
Half biography of two researchers, half summary of their work on human fallacies and predictable cognitive deficiencies. Kills the idea of “the rational human” and replaces it with a much more nuanced picture of a faulty human that makes mistakes in similar ways, which you can learn to identify and counter.      source

Michael Lewis’ book The Undoing Project about the friendship and partnership between Amos Tversky and Daniel Kahneman is a hoot. I recommend it highly to anybody who has an interest in cognitive psychology or decision making.      source
