豆瓣评分: 8.3


Best-selling author Michael Lewis examines how a Nobel Prize–winning theory of the mind altered our perception of reality. Forty years ago, Israeli psychologists Daniel Kahneman and Amos Tversky wrote a series of breathtakingly original studies undoing our assumptions about the decision-making process. Their papers showed the ways in which the human mind erred, systematically, when forced to make judgments about uncertain situations. Their work created the field of behavioral economics, revolutionized Big Data studies, advanced evidence-based medicine, led to a new approach to government regulation, and made much of Michael Lewis’s own work possible. Kahneman and Tversky are more responsible than anybody for the powerful trend to mistrust human intuition and defer to algorithms. The Undoing Project is about the fascinating collaboration between two men who have the dimensions of great literary figures. They became heroes in the university and on the battlefield―both had important careers in the Israeli military―and their research was deeply linked to their extraordinary life experiences. In the process they may well have changed, for good, mankind’s view of its own mind.


Michael Lewis, is the best-selling author of Liar’s Poker, Moneyball, The Blind Side, and Flash Boys. He lives in Berkeley, California, with his wife and three children.


@ 阿尔卑斯小蜜蜂 作者用深刻、个人、感性、不乏崇拜色彩的语调叙述了两位著名犹太心理学家的故事。之前没看过Michael Lewis的书,看了这本书对以色列犹太人的生活有了来自另一些人的了解。这本书有个很遗憾的地方:它的章节组成。比如说第一章和第八章就出现得很奇怪,和主旨衔和得不紧密。我读完第一章的时候一度怀疑我是不是读错书了。读到一半时,突然觉得这本书很适合拍成影视剧。它的故事、情节、还原过程的部分要大于理论铁板叙述的部分。这使得这本书很有趣,但连续十章来回写bromance之后,关于一个伟大理论离不开两者的共同努力的感叹也显得频繁、没有后劲。这本书值得一读,无论是了解还是不了解相关理论的群体。但如果真的想了解相关理论,还是谨慎一下自己再去看看相关论著吧。 @ 苗儿 超级好看。读最后一章时大哭。读完的当下想立刻再看一遍。有趣,动人,非常有智慧的吸引力,而且非常quotable。读一本好书的感觉就像打开了一个新的世界,上一本令我有如此感觉的书是两年前读的Parade's End @ Pink Martini 是Michael Lewis 的书里很喜欢的一本。绝对是超出常规思维的阅读体验。推荐! @ Stray bird A part of good science is to see what everyone else can see but think what no one else has ever said. —Amos Tversky @ 线条 一支金笔,一对神交。令人向往读到最后,既被他们的友谊,也被作者的文笔,弄哭了。 @ bo-xxxx 配合Thinking, Fast and Slow食用吧。我当八卦来看的。真正有意思的在Kahneman的那本著作。 @ kingweck It is sometimes easier to make the world a better place than to prove you have made the world a better place. 《思考快与慢》的八卦姐妹篇。
