    The 1980s was the most outrageous and turbulent era in the financial market since the crash of ’29, not only on Wall Street but around the world. Michael Lewis, as a trainee at Salomon Brothers in New York and as an investment banker and later financial journalist, was uniquely positioned to chronicle the ambition and folly that fueled the decade. In these trenchant, often hilarious true tales we meet the colorful movers and shakers who commanded the headlines and rewrote the rules.

    Me says: "Not the normal great Michael Lewis"

    Story
    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    Better story flow. Seems like a bunch of random short stories with no real defined message to the reader.


    What was your reaction to the ending? (No spoilers please!)

    Somewhat fitting.


    Have you listened to any of Alexander Cendese’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    Yes, I think he's a great narrator. He did a great job keeping me interested in a rather unorganized story line.


    Could you see The Money Culture being made into a movie or a TV series? Who should the stars be?

    No.


    Any additional comments?

    I read the reviews that said this was not Lewis' best work, yet I insisted on purchasing the audio book anyway. Micheal Lewis is one of my favorite authors and I enjoy anything related to finance, but even I was bored at times. Lewis still does a great job writing in a witty and humorous manner, but the underlying story just isn't there. It's just a bunch of short stories thrown together that are similar to "Liar's Poker" but not nearly as good. You can probably pass on this one, and instead just re-listen to "Liar's Poker" or "The Big Short".
