400: Bestselling author Michael Lewis tells the story of his career and dives deeply into several of his most notable books, including Moneyball, Liar’s Poker, and The Undoing Project. Despite being discouraged from his thesis advisor at Princeton to pursue writing and consistent rejections from publishers, Michael always had a passion for writing, and he knew that it was only a matter of time before he left Wall Street to pursue this passion. We also discuss how Michael organizes his ideas, how he has been able to defy pigeonholing his writing, how he is able to write about complex topics for those who are not expert in the topics, and a variety of other topics.

If it is a gift, the gift is not being afraid to seem a little ignorant and being able to remember how it feels to not know the topics I discuss.
