Beschrijving










Best-selling author Michael Lewis examines how a Nobel prize winning theory of the mind changed society forever.

In The Undoing Project, Michael Lewis brings his narrative gift to the fascinating collaboration between Israeli psychologists Daniel Kahneman and Amos Tversky, whose Nobel Prize-winning theory of the mind altered our perception of reality. Kahneman and Tversky showed the ways in which the human mind errs, systematically, when forced to make judgments about uncertain situations. By undoing our assumptions about the decision-making process, Kahneman and Tversky's breathtaking work created the field of behavioural economics,
advanced evidence-based medicine, led to a new approach to government regulation, and made possible much of Lewis's own writing on topics from business to baseball.These characters have the dramatic complexity of great literary figures, heroes both in the university and on the battlefield.

"Intellectually mesmerizing and inspiring."
Harper's Bazaar
"Lewis has written one hell of a love story."
The New York Times
"Fascinating stories about intriguing people."
The New Yorker

Recensie

Forty years ago, Israeli psychologists Daniel Kahneman and Amos Tversky wrote a series of breathtakingly original papers that invented the field of behavioral economics. One of the greatest partnerships in the history of science, Kahneman and Tversky's extraordinary friendship incited a revolution in Big Data studies, advanced evidence-based medicine, led to a new approach to government regulation, and made much of Michael Lewis's own work possible. In The Undoing Project, Lewis shows how their Nobel Prize-winning theory of the mind altered our perception of reality.
