Friday Books - The Undoing Project

Hello Friday Bloggers and fellow bookworms.

If you're back again - apologies for my rushed post last week - everything was conspiring against me. Eventually I left off the images, and just abandoned my post. You know those blogging days, when the formatting takes longer than the writing, and you could toss your laptop in the nearest puddle, pool, or ocean?

No moaning today, I've got a brand new book....

BookBeginnings, hosted by Rose City Reader, and The Friday 56 - hosted by Freda’s Voice are the hosting sites for the Friday link ups, where we discover more books, and make friends. Both involve sharing excerpts from a current book - the beginning and - you guessed it - page 56.



Here's my Book Beginning...


I really enjoy Michael Lewis. He knows how to tell a story. My favourite was Flash Boys, but I also enjoyed The Big Short. And of course I watched The Blind Side. Who didn't? I never did read Moneyball, but The Undoing Project looks good, and I don't think it matters if I haven't read Moneyball? I probably will though, after I'm done with this.

The beginning is ok, I will keep reading, because I know he can write better than that!

See what I mean? And this is a true story. For those of you who didn't follow the earlier link, it follows the friendship of Daniel Kahneman (author of ) and Amos Tversky, two psychology professors, whose thinking and writing changed the way we think (or the world, depending which book you read!)

Have a happy weekend, I wish you many delightful hours spent reading.

I haven't read anything by this author. This books sounds like it might be interesting. This week I am spotlighting The Cutaway by Christina Kovac. Happy reading!

Sounds like an interesting tale. I hope the writing picks up as you read on.

I must be one of the few people who hasn't seen The Blind Side or read the book...
