Author Michael Lewis

Michael Lewis (Liar's Poker, Big Short, Moneyball, Blindside, Flash Boys…) has written a new book called "The Undoing Project" about the two psychologists Amos Tversky and Daniel Kahneman. Economics nobel prize winner Kahneman's “Thinking Fast and Slow” has been a long time on my reading list but I have yet to get to around to it.

Lewis is very good at writing entertaining books and giving insight into areas that do not usually provide the best material for an easy read (Financial system, sport statistics,…). Some of the books are true classics (Liars Poker, Big Short) while other come across a bit rushed and more like an extended magazine article (e.g. Flash Boys) but are still enjoyable. I am a fan, enjoy his writing and therefore somewhat biased though. I am curious to see how this foray into the world of behavioral economics takes him.

Here is an interview of Lewis discussing some of his earlier work at the Haas Business School in Berkeley to get a taste for the type of stuff he writes about:
