Michael Lewis      

Best-Selling Author of "Moneyball", "The Blind Side" and "The Big Short"

Michael Lewis has published many New York Times bestselling books on various subjects. His most recent works are "The Fifth Risk", "The Undoing Project", "Flash Boys", and "The Big Short". "The Blind Side", published in 2006, tells the story of Michael Oher. Before that he wrote "Moneyball", a book ostensibly about baseball but also about the way markets value people. Both of his books about sports became movies, nominated for Academy Awards, as did his book about the 2008 financial crisis, "The Big Short". His other works include "Boomerang", "The New New Thing", about Silicon Valley during the Internet boom; "Coach", about the transformative powers of his own high school baseball coach; "Losers", about the 1996 Presidential campaign; and "Liar’s Poker", a Wall Street story based in part on his own experience working as a bond salesman for Salomon Brothers.

Lewis is a columnist for Bloomberg View and a contributing writer to Audible. His articles have also appeared in Vanity Fair, The New York Times Magazine, The New Yorker, Gourmet, Slate, Sports Illustrated, Foreign Affairs, and Poetry Magazine. He has served as editor and columnist for the British weekly The Spectator and as senior editor and campaign correspondent for The New Republic. He has filmed and narrated short pieces for ABC-TV’s Nightline; created and presented a four part documentary on the social consequences of the internet for the British Broadcasting Corporation; and recorded stories for the American public radio show, This American Life.
