Michael Lewis

Michael Lewis is an American writer of nonfiction, especially well-known for writing about finance in a way that is not only accessible to the layperson, but entertaining and in some cases even gripping. Several of his books have been turned into movies. His first book, Liar’s Poker, is a very funny account of how, after graduating from university, he worked at Salomon Brothers in the 1980s, in the heyday of bond trading.
