THE NEW INTERNATIONAL BESTSELLER FROM THE AUTHOR OF THE BIG SHORT AND FLASH BOYS

'A gripping account of how two psychologists reshaped the way we think ... What a story it is' Sunday Times
'You'll love it ... full of surprises and no small degree of tragedy' Tim Harford

In 1969 two men met on a university campus. Their names were Daniel Kahneman and Amos Tversky. They were different in every way. But they were both obsessed with the human mind - and both happened to be geniuses. Together, they would change the way we see the world.

'An enchanted collaboration ... During the final pages, I was blinking back tears' The New York Times

'My favourite writer full stop. Engages both heart and brain like no other' Daily Telegraph

'Brilliant, a wonderful book, a masterclass' Spectator

'Psychology's Lennon and McCartney ... Lewis is exactly the storyteller they deserve' Observer

Michael Lewis was born in New Orleans and educated at Princeton University and the London School of Economics. He has written several books including the New York Times bestsellers Liar's Poker, widely considered the book that defined Wall Street during the 1980s, The Big Short, 'probably the single best piece of financial journalism ever written' (Reuters), the breakneck tour of Europe's post-crunch economy, Boomerang, and the bestselling exposé of high-speed financial scams, Flash Boys. He writes for Vanity Fair magazine.
