By Michael Lewis
Michael Lewis is a grasp at dissecting the absurd: after skewering Wall highway in his nationwide bestseller Liar's Poker, he packed his amazing pen and set out at the 1996 crusade trail. As he follows the lads who aspire to the Oval workplace, Lewis discovers an absurd mixture of bravery and backpedaling, heroic probability and mealy-mouthed sound bytes, and a strategy so ridiculous and unsavory that it leaves him thinking about if all people involved—from the reporters to the applicants to the folk who voted—isn't finally a loser.
Pat Buchanan: turns into the 1st flesh presser ever to settle on a black hat over a white one.
Phil Gramm: spends twenty million funds to persuade electorate of his monetary responsibility.
John McCain: makes the deadly mistake of truly conversing his brain.
Alan Keyes: tests out of a brand new Hampshire inn and tells the chief one other candidate could be paying his bill.
Steve Forbes: refuses to respond to questions about his father's motorcycles.
Bob Dole: marches during the crusade with out ever seeming to care.
Losers is a wickedly humorous, unflinching examine how the US relatively is going approximately opting for a President.
