Some of the best and most influential papers by Amos Tversky, one of the most brilliant social science thinkers of the twentieth century. Amos Tversky (1937-1996) was a towering figure in the cognitive and decision sciences. His work was ingenious, exciting, and influential, spanning topics from intuition to statistics to behavioral economics. His long and extraordinarily productive collaboration with his friend and colleague Daniel Kahneman was the subject of Michael Lewis's best-selling book, The Undoing Project: A Friendship that Changed Our Minds. The Essential Tversky offers a selection of Tversky's best, most influential and accessible papers, "classics" chosen to capture the essence of Tversky's thought. The impact of Tversky's work is far reaching and long-lasting. In 2002, Kahneman, who drew on their joint work in his much-praised 2013 book, Thinking, Fast and Slow (and who contributes an afterword to this collection), was awarded the Nobel Prize in Economics for work done with Tversky. In The Undoing Project, Lewis (who contributes a foreword to this collection) describes his discovery that Tversky and Kahneman's thinking laid the foundation for Moneyball, his own ode to number-crunching. The papers collected in The Essential Tversky cover topics that include cognitive and perceptual bias, misguided beliefs, inconsistent preferences, risky choice and loss aversion decisions, and psychological common sense. Together, they offer nonspecialist readers an introduction to one of the most brilliant social science thinkers of the twentieth century.

Judgment pervades human experience. Do I have a strong enough case to go to trial? Will the Fed change interest rates? Can I trust this person? This book examines how people answer such questions. How do people cope with the complexities of the world economy, the uncertain behavior of friends and adversaries, or their own changing tastes and personalities? When are people's judgments prone to bias, and what is responsible for their biases? This book compiles psychologists' best attempts to answer these important questions.

Mott were themselves a trifling footnote in the Mott the Hoople saga, so it seems yet more irrelevant to dig up Mott demos and rarities. That's what comprises much of this disc, however, leading off with seven songs that the newly-formed Mott (as opposed to Mott the Hoople) used to get a CBS deal, followed by a few in which they auditioned new singer Nigel Benjamin and new guitarist Ray Majors (and one in which they auditioned a singer who was rightfully rejected, Brian Parrish). These were recorded in early 1975, and right from the boorish cock-rock of the opening "Love Now," one regrets having unsealed the shrink wrap. It's not all cock-rock -- there are some singer/songwriterish slower tunes too -- but the songwriting is clunky, the sound pedestrian mid-'70s British mainstream rock, and the cover of "Leave My Woman Alone" (credited to "the Overly Brothers") really strains the vocalists on the high notes. Wrapping up the collection are five jokey Christmas tunes recorded by Morgan Fisher, Overend Watts, Ray Major, and Dale Griffin in 1976 as the Paper Bags (there is nothing in the extensive liner notes to ascertain whether these were previously unreleased). From the sound of many of these, particularly in the cheesy keyboard parts, they were blatantly doing a mock tribute to Joe Meek -- well, they could have been ahead of their time in that respect, perhaps. Play the a cappella Christmas carol "Golders Green," with its chorus bewailing failure to find a virgin in the Golders Green district of London, if you want to impress your boorish friends. No, that's not all; there are five songs recorded under the Paper Bags handle, but in fact solely written and performed by Morgan Fisher in 1979, again with keyboard lines highly reminiscent of early-'60s instrumentals by Joe Meek. At this point the connection to Mott the Hoople, or even Mott, gets real tenuous, but Angel Air seems determined to put out anything rare with a Mott the Hoople connection, and we probably haven't seen the last of that. ~ Richie Unterberger
