The Undoing Project: A Friendship That Changed Our Minds by Michel Lewis. [0]

It is about the one of the greatest paternship between Nobel laureate Danny Kahneman and his colleague Amos Tversky.

Kahneman and Tversky’s extraordinary friendship incited a revolution in 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. [1]

The book is very well written and if you have read Kahneman's Thinking fast and slow, then you should also read this one.

For those finding this piece inspiring, I would recommend "The Undoing Project: A Friendship That Changed Our Minds" by Michael Lewis [1].

The book is about Daniel Kahneman and Amos Tversky and their research. In my opinion a very good combination of telling the story of the main characters and also giving interesting points from their research.
