Michael Lewis

Best-Selling Author of Flash Boys, Moneyball, and The Blind Side

Exclusive Representation by Greater Talent Network

Financial Journalist and New York Times best-selling author Michael Lewis has published more than a dozen books on subjects ranging from politics to Wall Street. Lewis’ latest release, the NYT #1 best-seller Flash Boys, has taken the financial market and business world by storm since its release in March 2014. The story reveals how the legal—but highly questionable— practice of high-frequency trading (HFT) has allowed certain Wall Street players to work the stock market to their advantage, and has been called one of the most provocative books to hit shelves since Lewis’ The Big Short. In The Blind Side, published in 2006, Lewis tells the story of NFL Offensive Tackle Michael Oher, and how his life was transformed from being a teen living on the streets of Memphis after he is adopted by white Evangelical Christians. Prior to that, Lewis wrote Moneyball, a book ostensibly about baseball but also about the way markets value people. Both of his books about sports became Academy Award nominated films.

Two of his most popular releases, The Big Shortand Boomerang, are narratives set in the global financial crisis. His other works include 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.
