The Undoing Project, Michael Lewis
First, let me say this is a book that doesn't need another review. Enter the title in your favorite search engine, and you will be overwhelmed by links to interviews with the author and thoughts on the book. You might have heard of Michael Lewis, some of his recent books including 'Moneyball' , 'The Blind Side' and 'The Big Short' have been the basis of successful movies.
He might not be the type of author you would expect to turn up on the blog of a self-confessed management nerd but "The Undoing Project' is a unique combination of storytelling and frame changing ideas. It is the management book for people who can't stand management books.
Lewis makes the work of Danny Kahneman and Amos Tversky on how we think and how our thinking might not be as rational as we might hope, accessible and enjoyable. It deals with powerful ideas presented with the flair of a master novelist.
The Undoing Project a must read for both established and aspiring managers and those interested in understanding how they (and others) think. Here's to making powerful ideas engaging!
