‘Michael Lewis is, by a long way, the most important financial writer alive today’ Spectator

‘As traders would say, this book is a buy’ Financial Times

By the author of the #1 bestseller THE BIG SHORT and the original business classic LIAR’S POKER comes the classic 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 Solomon Brothers in New York and as an investment banker and later financial journalist, was uniquely positioned to chronicle the ambition and folly that fueled that decade.

In these trenchant, often hilarious, true tales we meet the colourful movers and shakers who commanded the headlines and rewrote the rules.
