The under-qualified author writes in fawning adulation of his subject 'Michael Lewis', and has produced a stream-of-consciousness work of sycophantry. The viewpoints are odd, not curious, but odd, even galling at times. For example, by virtue of the subject's husband's alumni status, the subject is given the opportunity to speak to students at a Yale Master's Tea. Afterward, the author writes that the subject 'had joined company with other greats. . . like John McCain, Oliver Stone, Meryl Streep, [&] Kurt Vonnegut. . . .' Nowhere is the subject's greatness explained or demonstrated, rather it is assumed from the outset, and extolled as a means of proving its factuality. The delusion continues as the subject declares that because he has used New York's Fire Island as a location in several films, the local residents 'should put a monument to me on Fire Island, but they are way too arrogant for that.' The author fails to cite this as an example of the subject's own arrogance, but rather appears to quote the subject in steadfast agreement. All in all, this is a poorly-edited, exhaustingly-quoted, and failed attempt at a clinical analysis of its subject, lacking objectivity or excitement. Only upon reaching the epilogue does the reader discover that the subject terminated contact with the author during the course of the project. One can only wonder if the subject saw an early draft, and pulled out as a means of damage control.
