The Undoing Project: A Friendship That Changed Our Minds, by Michael Lewis.

About the professional partnership between two brilliant
yet distinctly differentpersonalities whose unlikely collaboration pioneered the field of behavioral economics. One thinks he is right about everything, the other is unsure of most everything.

This latest work from the author of "Moneyball" and "The Big Short" shows how this opposite commingling of styles provided the necessary combustion that generated transformative findings about how our minds work.
