Looks good! I'll watch it. I like trading movies. I haven't read the book, not much of a book guy either....

I read the book, and as @rleplae said "it was one of those books i read in one single effort you start reading it and you're caught in it".

Unfortunately as @Pariah Carey said "He's entertaining but facts are not his strong suit."

This is Lewis's 4th or 5th book that demonize's the financial system and as entertaining as it was I now wonder how objective and un-biased it actually it is. Interestingly the trailer makes this look even more anti-bank than I remember the book being. But hey, beating up wall street sells well.

Moneyball, the book that put him on the map, has not aged well. Most of the baseball players that were lionized as the newer, better way of analyzing the game turned out to be duds (or in Jason Giambi's case, juicing). And Lewis conveniently ignored the Oakland A's starting pitchers as the real reason for their early 2000's success.

TBS movie looks very slick and entertaining, hopefully not as raunchy as Wolf of Wall St (that would be hard to top). Margin Call was ok but a lot of the time I felt like I was watching an existential play. I think my favorite trading-related scene in a movie was Barry Pepper's jobs report call in 25th Hour.

Someday, and that day may never come, I'll call upon you to do a service for me.

Yeah, most people are oblivious to the fact that congress passed legislation in the late 90's forcing banks to give loans to unqualified people. This of course gave birth to sub-prime. Then when it blew up in their faces they pointed the fingers at the banks instead of themselves. (Not that banks are totally blameless) They then used sub prime as fodder to feed the masses that the banks were evil to get Dodd-Frank passed. What is it they say... never let a good crises go to waste.

Moneyball may have been the book that put him on the 'mainstream' map but the book that made Lewis famous was "Liar's Poker" and if anybody here has not read it I would strongly recommend it. Very very entertaining read about his days at Solomon Brothers as a trainee, and then a salesman, at one of the largest bond trading desks in the industry.

edit : add : Also explains how CMO's/mortgage bonds/tranches work and how the mortgage bond industry works. Which after 2008 is very interesting. Also gives you a trading desk view of Black Monday. Generally an entertaining read.
