Présentation de l'éditeur

While Michael Lewis worked as a bond dealer at Salomon Brothers he began his second career as a journalist and helped to record a real-life 'bonfire of the vanities'.

Not afraid of interviewing the world's most notorious financiers or of revealing the treachery and deception behind some of the biggest financial deals ever made, in The Money Culture, Lewis provides a contemporary record of the ups and downs of the world's money markets and the rise and fall of some of the larger-than-life personalities.

3.0 étoiles sur 5 A Mediocre Anthology 24 juillet 2001
Par Z. Blume - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Broché
This collection of previously published articles is at times very funny, insightful, and a good primer on several financial issues that dominated the 1980's, but it can also be repetitive (many of the articles repeat jokes, anecdotes, and some even seem to be slightly altered version of previous articles)and is quite dated since the articles detail financial events and characters of the mid to late 1980's. I learned a fair amount about the savings and loan scandals, leveraged buy outs, and the Japanese economic miracle and collapse, and also enjoyed some amusing tales of financial excess, but I had to read through a lot of less than interesting pages to find those treasures. I would not recommend someone buy this book, but if you can find it in the library, it is certainly worth flipping through it.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 Good, entertaining reading about finance issues in the 80's 28 février 2002
Par Dan E. Ross - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Broché
This is a collection of essays previously published in newspapers and magazines around the nation where some 10 years ago we could witness Lewis' early literary attempts. The book was consistently funny, insightful, and a good primer on several financial issues that dominated the 1980's. Most of these articles, for those interested in the authors' chronological history, came after he wrote his groundbreaking financial humor book entitled Liars Poker, which is regarded as a "must read" for anyone entering into the investment banking industry, particularly in bond trading where we he worked.
Mr. Lewis' writing style is great, which is why I read his book entitled Next, another good read if you are interested. Most of the topics in this book cover financial/business culture issues that date back during the late eighties, so there's also a bit of historical perspective to it.
The topics are a wide array and include stories about the domestic S&L scandal, some events that occurred in the French Bourse (their word for a stock market), the proliferation of the American Express Card during the 1980s, some offshore banking insights, Louis Rukeyser, Donald Trump, LBO stories and some comments on the Japanese capitalists. Like I said, he talks about a wide array of topics but remember that the book is a compilation of many articles.
I give it a 4 star rating. It was highly entertaining but nothing that caused my life to change or caused me to have a "light bulb" go off in my head.

3.0 étoiles sur 5 Not Lewis's Best Work 5 février 2008
Par S. T. Sullivan - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Broché|Achat vérifié
Michael Lewis wrote one of the great popular books about Wall Street, Liar's Poker: Rising Through the Wreckage on Wall Street. It is a classic of what life was like on Wall Street during the time when mortgage backed securities, something we're hearing a lot about currently, was just getting off the ground. He also wrote the bestseller Moneyball: The Art of Winning an Unfair Game, which is a great baseball book. This collection of pieces written right before and after Liar's Poker is all right, but it is not his best work.

I have a high tolerance for bad writing if I am interested in the subject manner, but even I had trouble getting through some of the early pieces in here. Perhaps Lewis had to get all this poor sophomoric writing out of his system before he could write decent books. If the pieces collected in Money Culture are what it takes to get to Moneyball, then so be it.

Still, from a reader's standpoint, don't bother with this one, read Liar's Poker and Moneyball instead.

2.0 étoiles sur 5 The Money Culture is US? 9 juin 2001
Par Walter Nicolau - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Broché
This is a collection of essays previously published in newspapers and magazines around the nation where some 10 years ago we could witness Lewis' early literary attempts. Although Lewis is a witty, scrutinizing, insightful, and overall entertaining writer, I think this book is highly overpriced. Most of the topics in this book cover financial/business culture issues that date back during the late eighties, so there's also a bit of historical perspective to it, when LBOs were a la mode, Donald Trump was making headlines, and Japan was considered a threat to the US economy and welfare...crazy thought. Go for Liar's Poker if you want to read Michael Lewis, that script is a jewel.

1.0 étoiles sur 5 don't let liar's poker fool you 25 juin 2000
Par Un client - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Broché
I thoroughly enjoyed Liar's Poker. Having finished that, I picked up The Money Culture since I thought Michael Lewis did such a wonderful job with the previous book. Was I ever wrong. Buried deep within the holier-than-thou attitude was that slight trace of sarcasm that made Liar's Poker so great. Why did I ever pay for a collection of pure random thoughts? For a no-holds-barred look at the world of finance, I recommend Money Business and F.I.A.S.C.O.
