    Revisiting Liar's Poker by Michael Lewis

    Revisiting Liar's Poker by Michael Lewis

    This week, we're sharing an excerpt of Michael Lewis' new audiobook. Michael published his first book, "Liar's Poker," in 1989. It’s about his time as a bond salesman on Wall Street — and it was a runaway best seller. For the first time, Pushkin is releasing an unabridged audiobook edition, read by Michael himself. Incorporating Pushkin’s signature sound design, scoring, archival tape and Michael’s incredible insight – this new edition of Liar’s Poker perfectly captures an era of greed, gluttony and outrageous fortune. But it is also the story of how young Michael Lewis became a writer and launched a storied and celebrated career.

    Download the audiobook today at pushkin.fm/liarspoker and receive an exclusive listener's guide featuring additional commentary from Michael, the producers and editors of Liar's Poker as well as photos from Michael's personal archives.
