Meet the Author

Michael Lewis
Financial journalist and bestselling author Michael Lewis is best known for intriguing nonfiction narratives like Liar's Poker, The New New Thing, and Moneyball.

Biography

Twenty-four year-old Princeton graduate Michael Lewis had recently received his master's degree from the London School of Economics when Salomon Brothers hired him as a bond salesman in 1985. He moved to New York for training and witnessed firsthand the cutthroat, scruple-free culture that was Wall Street in the 1980s. Several months later, armed only with what he'd learned in training, Lewis returned to London and spent the next three years dispensing investment advice to Salomon's well-heeled clientele. He earned hundreds of thousands of dollars and survived a 1987 hostile takeover attempt at the firm. Nonetheless, he grew disillusioned with his job and left Salomon to write an account of his experiences in the industry. Published in 1989, Liar's Poker remains one of the best written and most perceptive chronicles of investment banking and the appalling excesses of an era.

Since then, Lewis has found great success as a financial journalist and bestselling author. His nonfiction ranges over a variety of topics, including U.S./Japanese business relations (Pacific Rift), the 1996 presidential campaign (Trail Fever), Silicon Valley (The New New Thing), and the Internet boom (Next: The Future Just Happened). He investigated the economics of professional sports in Moneyball (2003) and The Blind Side (2006); and, in 2008, he edited Panic, an anthology of essays about the major financial crises of 1990s and early "oughts."

Good To Know

Michael Lewis attended Isidore Newman School in his native New Orleans, LA -- a private college prep school that counts among its more distinguished alumni historian Walter Isaacson, children's book author Mo Willems, singer Harry Connick, Jr., and famous pro-football siblings Peyton and Eli Manning.

    Essential Perspectives

    Smith, Ricardo, Keynes; Veblen, Malthus, Mackay; such a book containing each authors' most notable work, all of which successively developed, beginning with Smith, created the landscape of which our 21st century economic perspectives critique. Each author gives a different view, of which some are still relevant, while others not so much; nonetheless, each book will inspire deep reflection, as it should; for each inquires into the nature of man and the consequence thereof. Read them; enjoy them; of them, ask questions; the effort will avial.

    The Roots of Michael Lewis

    These texts first appear wordy until you realize every word is essential. Today's current economy is illuminated by these books that seem so remarkable for their complete relevance to everything in our world. Not just the economy but everything. It is as if Adam Smith wrote his book for the Wall Street Journal last week, not in the days of Thomas Jefferson. I now understand Michael Lewis' ability to so completely understand everything and see it all in economic terms. Lewis rightfully changes nothing of these historic gems but his introductions help the reader understand their importance. Long but worth the effort.
