Publisher's Summary

Michael Lewis goes to Washington!    

Who better to shine a light into the shadows of the nation's capital in the age of Trump than the best-selling author of Liar's Poker and The Big Short?    

In this audio investigation - unavailable in book form - Lewis narrates his 2018 report from Washington originally published in Bloomberg View. From inside the White House press room - which Lewis describes as having "the cramped, uncared-for feel of a public toilet" - to a balcony overlooking "a sea of white people" in the Trump International Hotel, to Steve Bannon's Capitol Hill townhouse, where he joins the former campaign CEO to watch the State of the Union address, Lewis takes listeners on an unforgettable behind-the-scenes tour.

Great short form audio

This is a new format, and I like it. Instead of reading a 5000 word article I can listen to it. Was that worth $3? Yes. Not worth a full credit on audible so just buy it outright.

A Vintage Michael Lewis Article

Not to be confused with his books this is a straightforward reading of an article he published. There is one story being told in a linear fashion. If you know and like Michael Lewis's work he has published in magazines you will probably like this too.

Perfect incisive, entertainment for commute

Would love more Michael Lewis in this short, magazine-like form, in addition to his books!

Lightweight gossip, short, insignificent

Barely worth the hour. Like Travels With Charlie as a payoff for a previously worthwhile author.

I'm hooked on Michael Lewis.

Just send me anything this guy writes. I'm always disappointed when they end. I think he could make anything interesting.

An American Crisis in the White House

Sadly more of what we already know, the American Citizens are being manipulated against themselves.

Important/Interesting Topic

Interesting, important & quick review regarding the lack of, and apparent disregard for, expertise following Trump's inauguration, as it played out in the various government agencies that make our country run. Perhaps a longer, more detailed book would have been more interesting.
