I really enjoy Michael Lewis's books and we went to the same school, but I think this blogger's argument is legitimate. Lewis is foremost a storyteller, not an analyst. Lewis is a master at crafting a narrative for a given topic; sometimes that narrative is a useful and accurate interpretation of the facts and sometimes it isn't. I think too many people automatically assume the former.

He may have a legitimate argument, but he goes way over the top and far afield with it.  Besides, for someone who disapproves of lots of scatological content, he sure does include a lot of it himself; I'm hoping that's just his little joke, though.
