Non-fiction bestseller Michael Lewis on the craft of writing (audio interview).

May 3, 2020 | By | Reply More

Writing fiction is fun, but writing non-fiction can pay the bills!

In this audio interview, you can hear Michael Lewis talk about his writing tips.

He’s the best-selling author of many books, including Liar’s Poker, Moneyball, The Blind Side, The Big Short, The Undoing Project, and The Fifth Risk. Both of his books about sports became movies nominated for Academy Awards, as did The Big Short, his book about the 2008 financial crisis.

Michael chats about such subjects as…

— How handing in a book report almost got Michael kicked out of middle school.
— What Michael’s thesis advisor at Princeton thought about his writing as an undergrad.
— How did Michael develop the ability to write without studying it directly?
— What was it about writing that got Michael hooked enough to keep submitting content to various publications even when he’d get more rejections than acceptance?
— Was it a hard decision for Michael to give up a high-paying job at Solomon Brothers bank to gamble on a career as a first-time author in 1989?
