Things you probably won't feel the same way about after reading this book: --the Cabinet Departments of Energy, Agriculture, and Commerce (an insider's look at what they really do is the focus o Lewis's book) --AccuWeather --big data --Chris Christie (who briefly ran the Trump team's transition) --inorganic kitty litter Things you will probably feel the same about: Donald Trump's fitness for office. No one explains the intersection of science and economics in a more powerful way than Michael Lewis. A look at how an incoming administration's ignorance, greed, and laziness are putting America at risk.— From Carla's Picks
The New York Times Bestseller, with a new afterword
"[Michael Lewis’s] most ambitious and important book." —Joe Klein, New York Times
Michael Lewis’s brilliant narrative of the Trump administration’s botched presidential transition takes us into the engine rooms of a government under attack by its leaders through willful ignorance and greed. The government manages a vast array of critical services that keep us safe and underpin our lives from ensuring the safety of our food and drugs and predicting extreme weather events to tracking and locating black market uranium before the terrorists do. The Fifth Risk masterfully and vividly unspools the consequences if the people given control over our government have no idea how it works.
