The classic Michael Lewis book that defined an era of greed, gluttony, and outrageous fortune, available for the first time unabridged and read by the author. You don’t want to miss the Michael Lewis Liar’s Poker audiobook, from Pushkin Industries.

In 1986, before Michael Lewis became the bestselling author of The Big Short, Moneyball, and Flash Boys, he landed a job at Salomon Brothers, one of Wall Street’s premier investment firms.

During the next three years, Lewis rose from callow trainee to New York- and London-based bond salesman, raking in millions for the firm and cashing in on a modern-day gold rush. Michael Lewis’ Liar’s Poker audiobook is the culmination of those heady, frenzied years — a behind-the-scenes look at a unique and turbulent time in American business. This new audio edition produced by the same team that produces his #1 podcast Against the Rules, is unabridged, read by the author, and features archival news footage from the era, original scoring and sound effects, as well as  a bonus episode from the companion podcast.

From the frat-boy camaraderie of the forty-first-floor trading room to the killer instinct that made ambitious young men gamble everything on a high-stakes game of bluffing and deception, Liar’s Poker is both “the funniest book on Wall Street I’ve ever read,” (Tom Wolfe)  and the launchpad for Michael Lewis’ storied career.

When you purchase the Michael Lewis Liar’s Poker unabridged audiobook directly from Pushkin, you will receive an exclusive Liar’s Poker Scrapbook featuring photos, notes from Michael’s personal archives, alternative titles for the book, and commentary on the recording of the audiobook.
