About the Author

Before moving to academia, Michael Lewis spent twenty-five years in the computer industry, in a variety of technical, support, and management positions. He then ran his own consultancy in business communication for ten years, joining Macquarie University in 2001, initially to teach business communication and academic writing; he also lectured in theoretical linguistics, and was convenor of Macquarie's postgraduate programs in editing and publishing, before retiring at the end of 2013. His doctoral research project was an exploration of persuasion strategies in letters of complaint, and responses, in the computer industry. He served several terms in the positions of President and Secretary of the Australian Society for Technical Communication (NSW), and President and Vice President of the Society of Editors (NSW); he also served as a director of Australia's Institute of Professional Editors. He remains a Professional Member of the Society of Editors (NSW) and is a Life Member of the Australian Systemic-Functional Linguistics Association.

Reviews

Lewis brings a welcome gimlet eye to the Trump era... the lessons of the "The Premonition" apply to more than just the C.D.C. -- they tell us why government bureaucracies fail.--Nick Confessore "New York Times Book Review"
An urgent, highly readable contribution to the literature of what might be called the politics of disease.-- "Kirkus Reviews (starred review)"
