Publisher's Summary

Daniel Kahneman and Amos Tversky met in war-torn 1960s Israel. Both were gifted young psychology professors: Kahneman a rootless son of Holocaust survivors who saw the world as a problem to be solved, Tversky a voluble, instinctual blur of energy.

In this breathtaking new audiobook, Michael Lewis tells the extraordinary story of a relationship that became a shared mind: one which created the field of behavioural economics, revolutionising everything from Big Data to medicine, from how we are governed to how we spend, from high finance to football.

Kahneman and Tversky, shows Michael Lewis, helped shape the world in which we now live - and may well have changed, for good, humankind'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.

    "Total joy from start to finish."

    I love Michael Lewis and I love Danny Kahneman.

    This is the book I most wanted to read in the world and I hadn't realised it until it existed. Cannot recommend it enough. Serves as a perfect companion to Thinking fast and slow.

    Story
    "Great writer finds a great topic"

    If you loved Daniel Kahneman's 'Thinking Fast and Slow', you will enjoy this biography + elaboration from Michael Lewis. If you haven't read the Kahneman yet, you definitely should and then read this, assuming the 400+ pages of Kahneman left you wanting more (which is the normal reaction, I believe.)

    No point in me repeating that ML is a great writer and story teller, but it probably is worth saying that the narration by Dennis Boutsikaris is of that 6-star quality that leaves you feeling sorry for people who read the hard copy version to themselves. He adds to your understanding. Leaves you waiting for the film version...

    By the way, I've recently downloaded and audioed 'Winter is Coming' by Gary Kasparov and 'The Euro' by Jospeh Stiglizt from Audible.fr - the French website. I can't review them on the UK site, but I thought I would flag up that there is a different selection of Audio-books in the 'Paris Store', so you might want to check that out. So much for the single market!

    "Vintage Michael Lewis"

    I loved the rounded portrayal of these academics and the wider influence of their work. The narration is very engaging and made for great listening experience.

    "A sparkling and moving account of genius"

    This is a truly outstanding account of the story of two geniuses. The background is impeccably researched and the story is made all the more poignant as it unfolds. Thoroughly recommended.

    "Good book, woefully narrated (IMHO)"

    Incredibly interesting story ruined by by a really monotonous narration. I increased the speed to offset the lack of pace but there was no getting away from the fact the narrator sounded well, bored.
