About the Author

Michael Lewis was born in New Orleans and educated at Princeton University and the London School of Economics. He has written several books including the New York Times bestsellers Liar's Poker, widely considered the book that defined Wall Street during the 1980s, The Big Short, 'probably the single best piece of financial journalism ever written' (Reuters), the breakneck tour of Europe's post-crunch economy, Boomerang, and the bestselling expose of high-speed financial scams, Flash Boys. Lewis is contributing writer for The New York Times Magazine and writes for Vanity Fair and Portfolio magazine.

Reviews

It's time to throw another tank of petrol on the Wall Street pyre, as only Lewis can * Financial Times *
He is so good everyone else may as well pack up * Evening Standard *
No one writes with more narrative panache about money and finance than Mr. Lewis -- Michiko Kakutani * New York Times *
Probably the single best piece of financial journalism ever written * Reuters *
Hugely entertaining * Economist *
Terrifying and superbly told * Daily Telegraph *
Genius * Sunday Times *
Compelling and horrifying -- GQ
A more than worthy successor to Liar's Poker ... if you want to know about the origins of the credit crunch, and the extraordinary cast of misfits, visionaries and chancers who made money from the crash, there's no more readable account * Daily Telegraph *
A triumph ... riveting ... a genuine page-turner * Times *
The very best book about this whole affair -- John Lanchester, author of 'Whoops!'
If you read only one book about the causes of the recent financial crisis, let it be Michael Lewis's The Big Short * Washington Post *
In the hands of Michael Lewis, anything is possible ... if you want to know how a nation lost its financial mind - and have a good laugh finding out - this is the book to read. * The Sunday Times *
Magnificent ... a perfect storm of brilliant writer meeting big subject. * The Guardian *

No one tells a business tale better than Lewis (Liar's Poker), and this narrative from the other side of the 2007-08 financial crisis is no exception. In chronicling the individuals who made money by betting that America's housing bubble would burst, Lewis makes even the most complex financial products and systems comprehensible to general readers.
