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."
