A masterful account of today's money culture, showing how the underpricing of risk leads to catastrophe.

The Barnes & Noble Review

Thomas Carlyle famously dubbed economics "the dismal science," and the name has stuck. But nothing can be dismal in Michael Lewis's hands. With his books on money and finance, which include the fabulously entertaining bestsellers Liar's Poker, The Money Culture, and The New New Thing, he made even readers whose eyes normally glaze over at the mention of credit default swaps or collateralized debt obligations sit up and enjoy themselves.
