Books podcast: Michael Lewis and The Undoing Project

The latest books podcast sees us sitting down with Michael Lewis – the author of Liar’s Poker, The Big Short, Flashboys and Moneyball — to ask how his latest book, The Undoing Project, comes to tell the story of the “intellectual bromance” between Amos Tversky and Daniel Kahneman; a friendship that completely reshaped the disciplines both of psychology and economics. It’s a fascinating and moving tale — and one that Lewis is uniquely well positioned to write.
