Joe Flood, writing for Asset International, has a review of Michael Lewis’ new book on the financial crisis, “The Big Short.” Lewis is the author of Liar’s Poker, Moneyball, and The Blind Side, which became a film and won an Oscar for Sandra Bullock. Like his other books, Lewis explores a cultural phenomenon from the ground up, telling it through rich narrative. Flood writes,
“Lewis is more interested in stories and characters than didacticism, but his tale of what went wrong and who saw it coming provides something much more important than regulatory advice: It’s the most insightful and enjoyable account yet of what went wrong on Wall Street, a must-read for any would-be reformers, regulators, or investment bankers hoping to learn from the mistakes of the past.”
