Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Michael Lewis is a most accomplished author with 'stonkin' good business related yarns such as "Liars's Poker", and "The Big Short", under his belt which have been widely acclaimed, well researched, and gripping reads with some considerable substance and 'meat on the bones'.

However, "The Money Culture" originally published in 1991 is different. It is a book of essays following a loosely woven financial thread ranging from his antipathy to American Express, Wall Street, the morality of Michael Milken, Eddie Braverman, perhaps the most unethical share-trader and bouncer of personal cheques of all time, the extremely nasty and tetchy Nabisco takeover bid, gambling on derivatives in London and Paris, the cruel lesson taught to T Boone Pickens on the Tokyo Stock Exchange, and other short essays. Each is an interesting 'cameo' that whips up your interest and then as quickly as it started, dumps you back to earth in a state of unfulfilled curiosity leaving you perhaps at best stirred enough to explore further on the various subjects and people covered. Books such as "Barbarians At The Gate" (by Burrough and Helyar) would certainly satisfy the most intense craving to throw light on the Nabisco takeover affair.

I found the most fascinating and hilarious cameo was the tale of Eddie Braverman, a character who surely would make a wonderful subject for a film of his nefarious financial wheeler dealer scams and his 'Keystone Cops' escapades in avoiding his creditors.

For lovers of collections of essays this book should appeal, to those who like more substance the appeal may not be as great.

Really not a book but just a selection of articles by Lewis, and done before he'd developed his style and learnt a bit more about the World.
The Japanese segments reads really badly in retrospect, criticising Japanese earthquake prooofing for example looks a bit silly given recent events demonstrated how remarkably resilient that nation is.
Anyone English is going to wince on the UK segment too. Lewis has developed into a fantastic author of (IMO) some of the most important books of and for the 21st Century, just not this one!
