As I wrote back in March, few writers are better able to tell the stories that happen on Wall Street and beyond than Michael Lewis.
He's the best-selling author behind "Moneyball," "Liar’s Poker" and "The Blind Side."
Now some 20 years after Lewis captured the greed and hubris of the 80’s in "Liar’s Poker" he’s back with a new book that’s being called the single best piece of financial journalism ever written.
In “The Big Short: Inside the Doomsday Machine,” Lewis takes the reader on a thrilling ride into the near abyss as our economy almost collapsed. His book is a brilliant account of what happened and full of villains, heroes, fools and plenty of good ol' fashioned greed.
Few share Lewis’ gift of story telling or his ability to take the most complex and make it riveting read.
