Michael Lewis returns to the financial world with a new book to be released by Allen Lane, an imprint of Penguin Books. Titled FLASH BOYS, the book gives readers a ringside seat as the biggest new story in years prepares to hit Wall Street.
Michael Lewis is the author of several international bestsellers, including The Big Short, Moneyball, The Blind Side, and the cult classic Liar’s Poker, widely considered the book that defined Wall Street during the 1980s. Lewis is contributing writer for The New York Times Magazine and writes for Portfolio and Vanity Fair magazine, for which he has interviewed Barack Obama. Malcolm Gladwell said of him “I read Lewis for the same reasons I watch Tiger Woods. I’ll never play like that. But it’s good to be reminded every now and again what genius looks like.”
