Publisher's Summary

Michael Lewis goes to Washington!    

Who better to shine a light into the shadows of the nation's capital in the age of Trump than the best-selling author of Liar's Poker and The Big Short?    

In this audio investigation - unavailable in book form - Lewis narrates his 2018 report from Washington originally published in Bloomberg View. From inside the White House press room - which Lewis describes as having "the cramped, uncared-for feel of a public toilet" - to a balcony overlooking "a sea of white people" in the Trump International Hotel, to Steve Bannon's Capitol Hill townhouse, where he joins the former campaign CEO to watch the State of the Union address, Lewis takes listeners on an unforgettable behind-the-scenes tour.

good story, not as captivating as most Lewis books

it's a good story and insight of the white House, Micheal Lewis has a great talent of explaining complicated topics in a simple way the average person can understand

Great short form audio

This is a new format, and I like it. Instead of reading a 5000 word article I can listen to it. Was that worth $3? Yes. Not worth a full credit on audible so just buy it outright.

A Vintage Michael Lewis Article

Not to be confused with his books this is a straightforward reading of an article he published. There is one story being told in a linear fashion. If you know and like Michael Lewis's work he has published in magazines you will probably like this too.

I'm hooked on Michael Lewis.

Just send me anything this guy writes. I'm always disappointed when they end. I think he could make anything interesting.

An American Crisis in the White House

Sadly more of what we already know, the American Citizens are being manipulated against themselves.

Hits a bullseye again!

Michel Lewis nails it again. His writing is on the money and his reporting style is in-depth but succinct.

Perfect incisive, entertainment for commute

Would love more Michael Lewis in this short, magazine-like form, in addition to his books!
