The classic warts-and-all portrait of the 1980s financial scene.The 1980s was the most outrageous and turbulent era in the financial market since the crash of '29, not only on Wall Street but around the world. Michael Lewis, as a trainee at Salomon Brothers in New York and as an investment banker and later financial journalist, was uniquely positioned to chronicle the ambition and folly that fueled the decade.
"One of our most entertaining writers. . . . The Money Culture rivals Liar's Poker in giggle-inspiring quality." - BusinessWeek
"With Lewis's puckish humor and inimitable writing style, the stories are entertaining and thought-provoking." - Library Journal
"Journalism of a high order. . . . Lewis's insouciance is one of his great charms as a writer, along with a graceful prose style, a mordant wit, and a thorough grounding in the world of finance. . . . One of those rare works that encapsulate and define an era." - Fortune
"The funniest and most trenchant commentator on the money-mad moguls reshaping our world today." - USA Today
