Publisher's Summary

An insightful collection from the Against the Rules podcast that answers the ultimate question: can even Michael Lewis be coached?

Journalist and bestselling author Michael Lewis’ podcast Against the Rules is dedicated to examining what's happened to fairness. It feels like there's less of it every day, and one of the “haves” of those who are better off includes access to coaching. But does having a coach help or hinder us? 

Making Winners is a highly personal anthology of Michael Lewis' podcast episodes on coaching. He visits his own high school baseball coach and subjects himself to publicly trying to overcome his greatest fear–with help from a coach, of course. Other chapters focus on lending practices, college admissions, professional sports, and psychological well-being. Who are the people trying to level the playing field, and are they making an impact? Making Winners includes a new foreword and afterword written with Lewis’s trademark insight and wry humor. 

Anyone new to podcasts in general or Against the Rules specifically will become engrossed in Making Winners, which, with over five hours of beautifully produced audio content, highlights Lewis’ trademark insight and storytelling.

Please note: This collection includes content that has been released in the podcast series.

Beautifully done. Exceptionally edited. Inspiring.

Beautifully done. Exceptionally edited. Inspiring. If you love Michael Lewis books, you will love this one as well. We felt like we got to know Dixie very well in one of his previous books (Playing to Win) so hearing her voice and learning more about the wonderful young woman she was, was heart warming in this one. Definitely one of our favorites. We will be listening to it again soon.

Don’t waste your time

Sometimes books are entertaining. Other times they are educational. This book was neither of the two. What an embarrassment that Michael Lewis would put out such garbage. The only reason that I forced myself to finish this boring, pointless comment insipid excuse for literature was to write this review. As a Michael Lewis fan, I could not be more disappointed in this. Do yourself a favor and read anything but this book.

No more $ on Michael Lewis books for me

Unfortunately he peaked with Liar’s Poker. Have been reading every book since and they just keep spiraling down a woke rabbit hole.

Compelled to write a review…

One of my favourite authors ever… playful, inquisitive, amusing, intelligent, such a breadth of characters that he draws upon… in a fresh audio format…outstanding!!

And the ending. Oh my goodness…..

Heartbreaking.
