I enjoy Michael Lewis's work.

Lately I've been thinking about how much society is based on what-you-can-get-away-with.

Michael Lewis seems to have a pretty fair eye for this, and bringing that to bear on Wall Street. ( )

I read Micheal Lewis all out of order, so I was a bit disappointed with this book. It consists of various sketches or short commentaries or transcribed interviews, rather than a persisting theme. The subject matter is the "greed of the eighties". The tone is moralistic. I think the book fails thus in a way which its companions do not: neither its illustrious predecessor the trnchantly funny "The Liar's Poker" (which shares one aspect with this book i.e. kiss-and-tell of Salomon Brothers) nor its successors, detailing the insightfully researched changes brought about for better or for worse by the e-boom and bust and the advent of the internet, told in "The New New Thing" and in the "Next: The Future Just happened".
