His bestselling books include Liar s Poker (1989), The New New Thing (2000), Moneyball: The Art of Winning an Unfair Game (2003), The Blind Side: Evolution of a Game (2006), Panic (2008), Home Game: An Accidental Guide to Fatherhood (2009), The Big Short: Inside the Doomsday Machine (2010), and Boomerang: Travels in the New Third World (2011). He has also been a contributing editor to Vanity Fair since 2009. His most recent book, Flash Boys, which looked at the high-frequency trading sector of Wall Street, was released in 2014. Lewis described his experiences at Salomon and the evolution of the mortgage-backed bond in Liar s Poker (1989). In The New New Thing (1999), he investigated the thenbooming Silicon Valley and discussed obsession with innovation. Four years later, Lewis wrote Moneyball, in which he investigated the success of Billy Beane and the Oakland A s. In August 2007, he wrote an article about catastrophe bonds entitled In Nature s Casino that appeared in The New York Times Magazine. In a 2011 column in The Atlantic, American journalist and sports author Allen Barra takes issue with Lewis s characterization of Major League Baseball in his 2003 book Moneyball. Barra writes: From a historical standpoint, Lewis is, well, way off base. By the end of the 20th century baseball had achieved a greater level of competitive balance than at any time in the game s history... Moneyball doesn t just get the state of present-day baseball wrong; it also misrepresents the history of the sport. (Wikipedia).
