Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Lewis is always a good read, though I would recommend Liar's Poker over The Big Short.

And I'd recommend reading The Great Crash 1929 before either of Lewis' books. Lewis tells the story of that which is different, but that story is best understood through the perspective granted by the story of that which is the same.

Both of Lewis books are worth a read. That said, I prefer his shorter essays in Vanity fair etc where he delivers his points bam bam bam, rather than losing them in amongst the flow of entertainingly recited events
