Next is a mordantly funny exploration of the brave new world spawned by the Internet. This New York Times bestseller reveals how much the Internet boom has encouraged great changes in the way we live, work, and think. With his knowing eye and wicked pen, Michael Lewis accounts that we are in the midst of one of the greatest status revolutions in the history of the world, and the Internet turns out to be a weapon in the hands of revolutionaries. Old priesthoods―lawyers, investment gurus, professionals in general―are toppling right and left. Where does it all lead? And will we like where we end up? Here is a book as fresh as tomorrow's headlines, and as entertaining as its predecessors.
