Excellent book! I cannot praise Lewis enough for his mastery of the subject, his vivid and accurate portraits, his subtle and seamless analysis and above all his humor. This is a finely written, intelligent and useful book on a key topic. Liar's Poker covers not just Lewis' hilarious initiation into Salomon's corporate culture, but the rise of mortgage backed bonds, the creation of the junk bond market, the reign of the corporate raider and the corresponding destruction of basic principles of American capitalism--all with easy humor and wit. Immensely entertaining and profoundly thoughtful. Highly recommended.
