    In this shrewd and wickedly funny book, Michael Lewis describes an astonishing era and his own rake's progress through a powerful investment bank. From an unlikely beginning (art history at Princeton?) he rose in two short years from Salomon Brothers trainee to Geek (the lowest form of life on the trading floor) to Big Swinging Dick, the most dangerous beast in the jungle, a bond salesman who could turn over millions of dollars' worth of doubtful bonds with just one call.

Liar's Poker

by KleineAlteLadi on Jun 3, 2010

A hoot! And informative, too. Hey, you can read this while the kids (or grandkids) are despoiling your hearing and your husband is nagging you to cook dinner. You will have fun and learn much. And the photo of the author is better than anything on TV these days.

Getting to know Michael Lewis

by SalukiSlew on Jan 22, 2009

I bought this book for the purpose of learning about Michael Lewis before I buy some of his subsequent and more recent books about Wall St. Although it is rather dated, it is an enjoyable intro. to the behind scenes and driving ideas of Wall St.'s mortgage market. Liar's Poker is informative and certainly worth a look. Michael is a talented writer and good story teller. I look forward to buying more of his books. As for the poker games, way outa my league!

Both seem to revolve around the 'securitization' of questionable debt -- how often do we have to repeat the same mistakes?
