    Beschreibung von Audible

    Editors Select, December 2016 - My team knows that I have some very obvious "author crushes" - as in, whenever I hear that one of said authors is coming out with a new release, I jump on the opportunity to listen to their book as soon as possible. Michael Lewis is one of these people. He's known for his accessible and incredibly interesting "backstage pass looks" into the inner workings of a particular industry - in my current favorites, Flash Boys and Liars' Poker, it's the world of finance - and in The Undoing Project (which is gunning for a top spot on my Michael Lewis list) it's behavioral economics...partially. It's about a friendship that completely revolutionized what is known as "Big Data" and increased the use and reliability of algorithms. Dennis Boutsikaris, with his clear and knowing voice, does an incredible job of highlighting the conversational tone Michael Lewis is known for. —Laura, Audible Editor

    Inhaltsangabe

    Best-selling author Michael Lewis examines how a Nobel Prize-winning theory of the mind altered our perception of reality.

    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 papers showed the ways in which the human mind erred systematically when forced to make judgments about uncertain situations. Their work created the field of behavioral economics, revolutionized Big Data studies, advanced evidence-based medicine, led to a new approach to government regulation, and made much of Michael Lewis' own work possible. Kahneman and Tversky are more responsible than anybody for the powerful trend to mistrust human intuition and defer to algorithms.

    The Undoing Project is about the fascinating collaboration between two men who have the dimensions of great literary figures. They became heroes in the university and on the battlefield - both had important careers in the Israeli military - and their research was deeply linked to their extraordinary life experiences. In the process they may well have changed for good mankind's view of its own mind.

    PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying reference material will be available in your Library section along with the audio.

    More of the same

    The audiobook might be interesting for people that have not read "Thinking, Fast and Slow", as there is a lot of repetition. As was the case for the "Thinking, Fast and Slow" audiobook, many illustrations especially on probability are difficult to follow on audio.

    If not for the reader/voice artist

    I wish the reader was not running to catch the train... He is terrible and very fast.

    Interesting if set in the right context

    Extremely interesting background story to many economic models. Especially for people with a background or an interest in finance who have also read „Misbehaving“ by Richard Thaler.

    Very interesting, but too long

    I'll keep it short. This book has some major downtime and it's repetitive in a lot of places. I feel like it would have benefited from some major cuts. None the less the subject matter of rational or rather irrational decision making is fascinating, as is the relationship between Daniel Kahneman and Amos Teversky.

    Thinking fast and slow to the Undoing Project

    If you liked Kahnemans book Thinking Slow and Fast, then this is a great book to chose. I remember, when I read K.'s book I wondered, why he kept regering so deferentially to this guy Tversky, of whom I knew nothing. But, then again, it was an honest gesture and I liked that he didn't try to take all the credit from a yearlong collaboration. In this book, you learn once more about their central contributions to psychology and economics, and the life stories of both Kahneman and Tversky is more fully fleshed out.

    Very interesting

    Exactly the right mix of life story and theory. I found the reader to be easy to understand.
