Liar’s Poker

Michael Lewis is one of my favorite authors. He?s not the smartest or the most clever writer but he weaves deceptively simple stories into larger statements on society and humanity with a skill possessed by very few people doing creative work in any field. I haven?t gotten around to reading Moneyball yet, but Liar?s Poker is probably his strongest work. It?s as hard to put down as any fiction. Great book.
