Duke Professor of Psychology & Behavioral Economics at Duke University, a founding member of the Center for Advanced Hindsight, and the author of the New York Times bestsellers Predictably Irrational, The Upside of Irrationality, and The Honest Truth About Dishonesty, and a new favorite book on motivation, Payoff: The Hidden Logic That Shapes Our Motivations (TED Books).
