Thought-Provoking Books for the Business-Minded Reader

Economist Richard H. Thaler is the author of Nudge: Improving Decisions About Health, Wealth, and Happiness and Misbehaving: The Making of Behavioral Economics. This year he received the Nobel Prize in Economics for his contributions to behavioral economics.

Do you have anyone on your gift list who wants to know how everything works? Help them conquer at least some of their curiosities with these eye-opening recommendations about the art of persuading, the history of Wall Street, and more from Thaler.

“In selecting these books I thought about what readers of Nudge and Misbehaving might want to read next,” Thaler says. “Daniel Kahneman‘s Thinking, Fast and Slow is a great companion to Misbehaving—and Kahneman and I have been friends for forty years. The Undoing Project tells the story of Kahneman’s friendship with his collaborator Amos Tversky.”

“My ringer is a classic by Tom Schelling, an early friend of behavioral economics, on a topic that is unfortunately current.”
