Interview with Michael (“Moneyball”) Lewis

Writer Michael Lewis (Moneyball, Liar’s Poker) lost $20,000 during the Internet boom, is writing a sequel to Moneyball, and can’t think with suspenders on:

“After 3 1/2 years of marinating in the Internet boom, and saying it was all going to collapse, I finally, once, picked a stock and bought it in December of 1999. It was Exodus, a good name for what then happened. I bought it at $70 and it went to zero. I lost about $20,000.”
