Reviews
Superb: Michael Lewis doing what he does best, illuminating the idiocy, madness and greed of modern finance. . . . Lewis achieves what I previously imagined impossible: He makes subprime sexy all over again.--Andrew Leonard
One of the best business books of the past two decades.--Malcolm Gladwell
I recommend everyone within the sound of my voice to read [this] book.--Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.)
I read it, marked it up for my staff, underlined it, made copies and asked them to read it.--Senator Carl Levin (D-Mich.)
[A]n incredible piece of commentary on Wall Street.--Rep. Jackie Speier (D-Calif.)
No one writes with more narrative panache about money and finance than Mr. Lewis....[he] does a nimble job of using his subjects' stories to explicate the greed, idiocies and hypocrisies of a system notably lacking in grown-up supervision....Writing in faintly Tom Wolfe-ian prose, Mr. Lewis does a colorful job of introducing the lay reader to the Darwinian world of the bond market.--Michiko Kakutani
I read Lewis for the same reasons I watch Tiger Woods. I'll never play like that. But it's good to be reminded every now and again what genius looks like.--Malcolm Gladwell
