Few writers are as deft as Lewis in connecting the personal with the forces of business, sports, government, and finance, making those abstract subjects come vividly alive through the people he profiles. His first book, Liar’s Poker, chronicled his own adventures as a bond salesman, but since then, in books such as Moneyball and The Blind Side, he has found his stories by telling the tales of others. The Fifth Risk, his most recent book, details the scary consequences to federal agencies when someone clueless about their operations becomes president. Here, Lewis shares three of the books he feels deserve more attention than they’ve received.
