Books: Michael Lewis



by Seattle Jon (bio)

Author Michael Lewis has a knack for picking topics I enjoy - finance, Wall Street, baseball, football, fatherhood - and writing entertaining, hard-to-put-down books about these topics. I've read all of the books linked to in the last sentence and I can honestly say I loved each one of them. Now, his books are starting to be made into movies. First came The Blind Side, for which BYU should have also won on Oscar. Next comes Moneyball, the story of how the Oakland A's modernized baseball scouting with an analytical approach to assembling a team. Could this be the next great baseball movie after The Natural?
