Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The 1980s was the most outrageous and turbulent era in the financial market since the crash of '29, not only on Wall Street but around the world. Michael Lewis, as a trainee at Salomon Brothers in New York and as an investment banker and later financial journalist, was uniquely positioned to chronicle the ambition and folly that fueled the decade.

Synopsis:

The author of the best-selling Liar's Pokeroffers a witty, trenchant analysis of the world of high finance in the 1980s and the cult of wealth that produced such moguls as Michael Milken and Donald Trump.

Synopsis:

Journalism of a high order. . . . Lewis's insouciance is one of his great charms as a writer, along with a graceful prose style, a mordant wit, and a thorough grounding in the world of finance. . . . One of those rare works that encapsulate and define an era.The funniest and most trenchant commentator on the money-mad moguls reshaping our world today.One of our most entertaining writers. . . . The Money Culture rivals Liar's Poker in giggle-inspiring quality.With Lewis's puckish humor and inimitable writing style, the stories are entertaining and thought-provoking.

Synopsis:

The classic warts-and-all portrait of the 1980s financial scene.
