From the author of "Liar's Poker", Michael Lewis's international bestseller "The Big Short: Inside the Doomsday Machine" is the extraordinary true story of the men who made millions from global economic meltdown. From the jungles of the trading floor to the casinos of Las Vegas, "The Big Short" tells the outrageous story of the misfits, renegades and visionaries who saw that the biggest credit bubble of all time was about to burst, bet against the banking system - and made a killing. "In the hands of Michael Lewis, anything is possible ...if you want to know how a nation lost its financial mind - and have a good laugh finding out - this is the book to read". ("Sunday Times"). "Magnificent ...a perfect storm of brilliant writer meeting big subject". ("Guardian"). "A triumph ...riveting..."The Big Short" reads like a thriller". ("The Times"). "A terrifying story, superbly well told". ("Daily Telegraph"). "A rollicking good yarn". ("Financial Times"). "Probably the single best piece of financial journalism ever written". ("Reuters"). Michael Lewis was born in New Orleans and educated at Princeton University and the London School of Economics.
He has written several books including the "New York Times" bestseller, "Liar's Poker", widely considered the book that defined Wall Street during the 1980s, "Panic!", "Moneyball", later adapted into a film of the same name starring Brad Pitt, "The Blind Side", adapted into an Oscar-winning film starring Sandra Bullock, and Boomerang. Lewis is contributing writer for the "New York Times Magazine", columnist for "Bloomberg" and "Slate".
