The Big Short by Michael Lewis | A 15-Minute Summary & Analysis


The Big Short: Inside the Doomsday Machine, by Michael Lewis, is an informative, entertaining, and sometimes darkly comic look at the 2007-2008 mortgage crisis in America. Lewis, a former Wall Street insider, weaves a tale filled with greed, deceit, and ignorance that culminates in the devastating financial catastrophe. 

Lewis presents a chain of events that is complicated in nature, but makes it easily accessible to the average reader, even those not familiar with the complexities of the world of Wall Street trading. He explains events and terminology as part of the narrative while clearly outlining the sequence of events leading up to the crisis. 

In addition to the narrative sequence, Lewis provides insight into the personalities of a handful of characters who understood what was happening and how their lives led them to their part in these events. Lewis does brilliant character work with the main players, encouraging the reader to get to know each of the men and understand what may have driven them to their roles in this story, while allowing the narrative to unfold naturally around the biographical sketches.
