LIAR'S POKER Rising Through the Wreckage on Wall Street

Earphones Award Winner

by | Read by Michael Lewis

Business & Finance • 10.25 hrs. • Unabridged • © 1989

This new edition of LIAR'S POKER, a classic about turbulent 1980s Wall Street, is a template for the future of nonfiction audiobooks. It features a microphone-friendly author interpreting his work with the intimacy of an engaging podcast, along with production effects that incorporate historic news reports, sounds, and music. These last bits are placed further back in the audio spectrum than is typical in audiobooks (though not uncommon in podcasts). The sound effects--for example, a ringing telephone and a trumpeting elephant--are not employed theatrically but rather as audio emoji enhancing the text. This Alice-in-Wonderland journey through 1980s Wall Street is as contemporary as cryptocurrency. Even after three decades, the audiobook feels current, packed with entertaining narratives; unforgettable characters; and well-explained financial minutiae. R.W.S.
