Michael Lewis' upcoming book Flash Boys: A Wall Street Revolt offers a ringside seat to the ways of Wall Street. His past works on the financial industry are game-changing examinations of the most important financial issues of our time. Come hear him -- in conversation with Malcolm Gladwell -- reveal what he’s been investigating. We're thrilled to welcome Gladwell back to Live Talks Los Angeles for his third visit.
After graduating from Princeton University and the London School of Economics, Lewis worked on the bond desk at Salomon Brothers, an experience he recounted in Liar's Poker, his first book. He left the financial world to become a journalist, writing on politics, finance and more for The New Republic, The New York Times Magazine, Slate and other publications. He is currently a contributing editor at Vanity Fair. He is also the author of Home Game: An Accidental Guide to Fatherhood. He lives in Berkeley, California.
