Michael Lewis was born and brought up in New Orleans and even though he now lives in California, he remains involved and deeply interested in his hometown. As a teenager, he went to Princeton from where he graduated with an art history degree. He later on attended the London School of Economics and got his masters in economics. He now lives with Tabitha Soren his wife and Walker, Dixie and Quinn their three children in Berkeley, California. Having published novels in all manner of genres, he published “Home Game”, a nonfiction work about how he is raising his children.

Michael’s venture into a career as an author came from refusing to heed the advice of his thesis advisor. When he was doing his undergraduate at Princeton his supervisor advised him to forget about a career in writing. Even though he graduated, he never spent time apprenticing or working in art, but instead found his way into finance. During his time working Salomon Brothers in New York City, he started writing and his friends and family encouraged him to continue. His first leap into real writing was when he decided to chronicle his experiences working in Wall Street in his debut novel “Liar’s Poker.” The novel gave insight into Wall Street greed as he inserted himself into the story and took on powerful figures in Wall Street including Salomon Brothers.

“Liar’s Poker” by Michael Lewis is a story set in Wall Street during the 1980s. It was a time when Michael Lewis had just graduated from the London School of Economics and Princeton. He found himself a job at premier investment firm in Wall Street known as Salomon Brothers. Over the following three years, he rose from lowly trainee to become bond salesman. He made millions of dollars for the company and cashed in on what was the modern day gold rush. His debut novel is a work that offers insights into the frenzied and heady years of the 1980s which were some of the most turbulent and unique times. He tells of the fratboy camaraderie that was the way of life for the trading room on the forty-first floor to the killer instinct that made men take huge risks in high stakes games of deception and bluff. It is an insider account of an era of outrageous fortune, gluttony and greed that is hilarious as it is informative.

In “The Big Short” Michael Lewis provides insights into the stinking morass of an epic financial crisis. In eminently readable and easily understandable synopsis of the great financial crisis, he explains how a few people orchestrated the biggest Ponzi scheme in American history. He tells the story of a few eccentric, brilliant and entertaining money men that saw from very early on that the Subprime sector was heading towards a freight train with no brakes. Michael traces the origin of the 2008 financial crisis right from the 1990s up to the time the bubble burst and sprayed the sewage onto all of us. He does a terrific job of telling of the crisis while it is still fresh and painful to the memory thus making for an enjoyable and entertaining read. Taking complex financial instruments and explaining how the financial system works, he makes it possible for the lay person to see how gradual policy changes over the years made the crisis inevitable.
