The author of the best-selling Liar’s Poker offers 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.

Michael Lewis is living the dream. He is the older brother or the boy that grew up down the street that is good at everything. He went to Princeton. He went to the London School of Economics. He took a job in the early eighties as a trader at Solomon Brothers and made a small fortune. He tried writing. Wrote Liar’s Poker, The New New Thing, Moneyball, Trail Fever, and The Blind Side. He’s written for The New Republic, New York Times Magazine, Bloomberg, Vanity Fair, Portfolio, and Slate. He currently lives in Berkeley where he’s a visiting fellow at Cal, writes when he can, and collects royalty checks full-time. He’s married to former MTV News host Tabitha Soren and has a bunch of kids. He lives in an impressive home/compound.

Money Culture is an anthology of early Lewis articles first published in the late eighties. He writes about leveraged buy outs, the savings and loans disaster, yuppies, Wall Street culture, the European nouveau riche, the Japanese pinnacle and crash, and, of course, greed.
