    I know why you're here. You've probably seen some of the influencers online bragging about how they've made millions flipping NFTs, and now they have 30 Lambos! They live in an oceanside mansion and have a private butler who picks out all of the brown m&ms from the packet before serving them. You want to live like that, right? NFTs are your ticket to millions. They have to be! Because you've already tried everything else! Well, I hate to be the bearer of bad news, but you should probably not start shopping for Lambos just yet...The truth is that a lot of those projects fail. Just hop on Twitter or discord now, and you'll see them literally begging people to buy or raise the price of their...read more

    Brought to you by Penguin. 'It's a foreboding,' she said. 'A knowing that something is looming around the corner. Like how when the seasons change you can smell fall in the air right before the leaves change and the wind turns cold.' In January 2020, as people started dying from a new virus in Wuhan, China, few really understood the magnitude of what was happening. Except, that is, a small group of scientific misfits who in their different ways had been obsessed all their lives with how viruses spread and replicated - and with why the governments and the institutions that were supposed to look after us, kept making the same mistakes time and again. This group saw what nobody else did. A...read more

    Bestselling 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...read more

    Penguin presents the unabridged, downloadable, audiobook edition of The Undoing Project, by Michael Lewis, read by Dennis Boutsikaris. Daniel Kahneman and Amos Tversky met in war-torn 1960s Israel. Both were gifted young psychology professors: Kahneman a rootless son of holocaust survivors who saw the world as a problem to be solved; Tversky a voluble, instinctual blur of energy. In this breathtaking new book, Michael Lewis tells the extraordinary story of a relationship that became a shared mind: one which created the field of behavioural economics, revolutionising everything from Big Data to medicine, from how we are governed to how we spend, from high finance to football. Kahneman and...read more
