SYNOPSIS : β€œBrilliant. . . . Lewis has given us a spectacular account of two great men who faced up to uncertainty and the limits of human reason.” β€”William Easterly, Wall Street Journal 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.

SYNOPSIS : Summary, Analysis & Review of Michael Lewis’s The Undoing Project by Instaread Preview: The Undoing Project: A Friendship that Changed Our Minds explores the relationship and psychological theories of two Israeli academics, Daniel Kahneman and Amos Tversky, whose ideas about human judgment and decision-making established the field of behavioral economics. The two men’s collaborative work began with an audacious premise: that humans are not rational decision-makers. Rational decision-making was the cornerstone of both the psychology of decision-making and the field of economics in the 1970s, but Kahneman and Tversky asserted that people’s judgment was swayed by their emotions, not their intellects. They tested this theory in a variety of ways, which led them to co-write a series of influential papers about judgment and how decisions are made. The sheer force of these concepts was such that, although they ran contrary to conventional wisdom, people instantly comprehended their truth. They soon became academic stars, although Tversky’s accolades came much faster… PLEASE NOTE: This is a Summary, Analysis & Review of the book and NOT the original book.

System 1 is fast, intuitive, and emotional; System 2 is slower, more deliberative, and more logical. The impact of overconfidence on corporate strategies, the difficulties of predicting what will make us happy in the future, the profound effect of cognitive biases on everything from playing the stock market to planning our next vacationβ€”each of these can be understood only by knowing how the two systems shape our judgments and decisions. Engaging the reader in a lively conversation about how we think, Kahneman reveals where we can and cannot trust our intuitions and how we can tap into the benefits of slow thinking. He offers practical and enlightening insights into how choices are made in both our business and our personal livesβ€”and how we can use different techniques to guard against the mental glitches that often get us into trouble. Winner of the National Academy of Sciences Best Book Award and the Los Angeles Times Book Prize and selected by The New York Times Book Review as one of the ten best books of 2011, Thinking, Fast and Slow is destined to be a classic.

SYNOPSIS : "Lewis has such a gift for storytelling... he writes as lucidly for sports fans as for those who read him for other reasons."--Janet Maslin, New York Times When we first meet Michael Oher is one of thirteen children by a mother addicted to crack; he does not know his real name, his father, his birthday, or how to read or write. He takes up football, and school, after a rich, white, Evangelical family plucks him from the streets. Then two great forces alter Oher: the family's love and the evolution of professional football itself into a game in which the quarterback must be protected at any cost. Our protagonist becomes the priceless package of size, speed, and agility necessary to guard the quarterback's greatest vulnerability: his blind side.

SYNOPSIS : The New York Times bestseller: β€œHilarious. No mushy tribute to the joys of fatherhood, Lewis’ book addresses the good, the bad, and the merely baffling about having kids.”—Boston Globe When Michael Lewis became a father, he decided to keep a written record of what actually happened immediately after the birth of each of his three children. This book is that record. But it is also something else: maybe the funniest, most unsparing account of ordinary daily household life ever recorded, from the point of view of the man inside. The remarkable thing about this story isn’t that Lewis is so unusual. It’s that he is so typical. The only wonder is that his wife has allowed him to publish it.
