He wrote Liars Poker and The Big Short about what goes so wrong on Wall Street.

For those of us trying to find deals at the grocery store, or for medicine, or new tires etc these books explain a lot of why we are where we are.

The Big Short was a very interesting book. Might have to read it again. I haven't read the others.
