    Liars Poker review  103 Liars Poker21 years after publication Liar's Poker feels both relevant and ancient Relevant because it seems the Big Swinging Dicks of Wall Street are ever with us; ancient because of references to things like WATS lines and the lionizing of Salomon Brothers trader John Meriwether whose Long Term Capital Management would spectacularly implode in 1998 and Michael Milken who apparently had not yet been indicted when the book went to press but g

    Liars Poker review  103 Liars PokerAtlas Shrugged for the philistine It's subtle glorification of the greedy underneath a veneer of hilarious sarcasm and grudging respect is the stuff financial Bibles are made of An interesting slice of financial history is captured succinctly precisely the development of Collaterized Mortgage Obligations in the 80's which also has direct relevance to the recent US housing crisis If you wish to get everything you can out of this book get your Finance 101 straight It'll be a lot fun

    Liars Poker review  103 Liars PokerThis book surprised me I read and enjoyed Lewis' Moneyball a while back and thought I was getting another journalistic account this time of a crazy moment in corporate culture Instead it's very much a memoir of that world And I didn't care for it at first since the group of people he writes about are so spectacularly awful He brings a certain world of investment banking trainees home to you and I wanted nothing to do with it If that was the whole book I don't think I could take it Something like the way some people don't like The Office esp the BBC version; it's too painful to see such human lownessBut I'm glad I stuck around because he can really tell a story The sense of battle politicking and putting up fronts Wry observations Big picture little picture He comes off as a whistle blower with no sense that he's betraying his world; just an inside man dissecting a world he finds amusing deranged and perversely fun

    Liars Poker review  103 Liars PokerWhy am I languishing here making approximately 0 dollars as a librarian Why was I not a Wall Street investment banker These guys were having all the fun In his introduction to the Big Short Lewis writes that he was dismayed people took Liar's Poker not as a cautionary tale but as a how to manual for their careers But I can totally understand why He makes the trading floor sound like the place to be the absolute center of the universe He's also got a real knack for explaining something in one or two sentences and then providing a brief anecdote or lively uote to illustrate the thing described It's literally never boring I've heard people say that his writing is successful because it makes readers feel smart and I get that Although sometimes when you have failed to understand something so colorfully and breezily explained it can actually make you feelless smart I read one particular page about the rise of junk bonds three times and then just gave up

    Liars Poker review  103 Liars PokerWhile this is probably Michael Lewis's most famous book it is not my favorite Lewis is always an engaging writer but maybe because this is a recounting of a period of his life and not an investigation into an exciting mystery or a study of a socialogical phenomen

    Liars Poker review  103 Liars PokerProbably the least interesting thing by Michael Lewis that I've read Billed as an expose of Wall Street greed I found it to be a story of incompetent management and political infighting by conceited executives who found themselves successful by being in the right place at the right time but think themselves as geniuses Some of this reminded me a lot of my father's stories of the politics at his former law practice Why anyone would want to work in a place with so much backstabbing and viscousness is beyond me Shows the value of company culture It's funny to see Lewis wishing the company had been bought out by private euity firms just so they would fire the management To me this book is another example that companies can sometimes be successful in spite of their leaders if they have a decent product and some luck
