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.

A powerful and evocative story of twinned minds
The best philosophical biography i have ever read/ listened to
How Danny Kahneman and Amos Tversky's experiences of the Holocaust (and War in Israel's military) fundamentally shaped who they were; was it these experinces that fostered characters destined to be collaborators together as much as it created people that would inevitably tear apart from one another?!
Amos was the most compelling and intriguiung character as you don't feel you get to understand or see all of his emotional levels.
Yes, it opened my mind to collaboration between scholars as being completely equal. The whole is greater than sum of the parts is as true in Academia as it is anywhere else in life.
The story of two trailblazers who will leave/ have left the world a better place as a result of their work.
