From the author of the Big Short
By Michael Lewis
The book that revealed the truth about London and Wall Street.
Published for the first time in flipback - the new, portable, stylish format that's taken Europe by storm.
FUNNY, FRIGHTENING, BREATHLESS AND HEARTLESS, LIAR'S POKER IS A TALE OF HYSTERICAL GREED AND AMBITION SET IN AN OBSESSED, ENCLOSED WORLD.
From mere trainee to lowly geek, to triumphal Big Swinging Dick: that was Michael Lewis's pell-mell progress through the dealing rooms of Salomon Brothers in New York and London during the heady mid-1980s when they were probably the world's most powerful and profitable merchant bank.
Michael Lewis is a former banker who worked at Salomon Brothers in the height of the 80s boom. He writes regularly as a journalist and is the author of several bestselling books.
