 Michael Lewis Biography

A shrewd observer of politics, finance and the American scene, Michael Lewis combines keen insight with a signature sense of humor in becoming one of today's leading social commentators. Taking his second dive into the world of professional sports with "The Blind Side: Evolution of a Game" (W.W. Norton, 2006), Lewis delves into the substructure of football and, specifically, the less-heralded linemen who are overshadowed by society's fascination with point-scorers.

"The Blind Side" comes on the heels of Lewis' 2003 release "Moneyball: The Art of Winning an Unfair Game." Providing an unprecedented look behind the scenes of a Major League Baseball franchise, this New York Times best seller details the effect that an innovative personnel approach has had in allowing the small-budget Oakland Athletics to consistently rank among baseball's best. In an era of $200 million payrolls, the A's of general manager Billy Beane have made an annual habit of defying conventional wisdom in posting one of the top records in baseball--often with a payroll one-quarter the size of MLB's high-salary rosters.

From the dugouts and locker rooms to ownership boardrooms, Lewis' brilliant and irreverent presentation reveals the revolutionary principles used by the A's to win a game that can cripple baseball's richest (and sometimes foolish) franchises. In "Moneyball," he draws on his unique knowledge of money, science, entertainment and ego to illustrate the strategies employed by a club gleaning lessons from corporate America.

In 1989, Lewis first made a name for himself with the chart-topping "Liar's Poker: Rising Through the Wreckage of Wall Street," an inside look at his career as a bond trader that best-selling author Tom Wolfe labeled "the funniest book on Wall Street I've ever read" and earned Lewis the label of "America's poet laureate of capital" from The Los Angeles Times. "Liar's Poker" spent 62 weeks on the NYT best-seller list and remains one of the signature books of the 1980s.

On the heels of "Liar's Poker," Lewis traversed the 1980s' get-rich-quick jungle with "The Money Culture" (Penguin, 1992); chronicled the 1996 presidential campaign in "Losers: The Road to Everyplace But the White House"; crafted a 20-week NYT best seller in 2001 with "The New, New Thing" ("The book that does for Silicon Valley what 'Liar's Poker' did for Wall Street"); explored the internet boom in "Next: The Future Just Happened" (2002); and revealed life lessons learned on the baseball diamond in "Coach" (2005).

A native of New Orleans, Michael Lewis graduated from Princeton University with a degree in art history and earned a master's at The London School of Economics. Prior to his career as an author, he worked with New York art dealer Wildenstein, and with Salomon Brothers both on Wall Street and in London. He lives in Berkeley with his wife, Tabitha Soren and three children.
