Michael Lewis – the best-selling author of Liar’s Poker, Moneyball and The Big Short, among others – presents a fascinating overview of the lifelong friendship between, he argues, two of the world’s smartest men: psychologists Daniel Kahneman and Amos Tversky. By focusing on their friendship, Lewis can detail Jewish refugees’ escape from Europe during World War II, the growth of Israel and significant trends in psychology. Lewis’s writing comes alive when he’s describing the ideas these two men produced and how they shaped entirely new ways of thinking about human thought and decision making.
