The Coming Storm by Michael Lewis

I listened to the unabridged audio version of The Coming Storm by Michael Lewis, which was narrated by the author. Listening time for The Coming Storm by Michael Lewis is 2 hours, 27 minutes.

I was able to download The Coming Storm by Michael Lewis for FREE from Audible (it may still be available for free on Audible??), below is my honest unbiased review of The Coming Storm by Michael Lewis.

The Coming Storm by Michael Lewis is my first experience with anything written by the author. Wow, just wow, I am simply impressed with The Coming Storm! It packs a powerful punch and a wealth of information that is current and extremely relevant today in every way... Especially when it comes to the way which information is disseminated and who has access to it. 

If you enjoy learning about science and technology, along with politics, the weather, and natural catastrophes (and more!), then this may be the perfect read for you.

The following is a summary for The Coming Storm by Michael Lewis from Audible:
Tornadoes, cyclones, tsunamis… Weather can be deadly – especially when it strikes without warning. Millions of Americans could soon find themselves at the mercy of violent weather if the public data behind lifesaving storm alerts gets privatized for personal gain. In his first Audible Original, New York Times best-selling author and journalist Michael Lewis delivers hard-hitting research on not-so-random weather data – and how Washington plans to release it. He also digs deep into the lives of two scientists who revolutionized climate predictions, bringing warning systems to previously unimaginable levels of accuracy. One is Kathy Sullivan, a gifted scientist among the first women in space; the other, D.J. Patil, is a trickster-turned-mathematician and a political adviser. Most urgently, Lewis’s narrative reveals the potential cost of putting a price tag on information with the potential to save lives, raising questions about balancing public service with profits in an ethically-ambiguous atmosphere.

Below is a video of Michael Lewis discussing The Coming Storm.

I am giving The Coming Storm by Michael Lewis a rating of 5 stars out of 5 stars.

Until my next post, happy reading!!


  1. My goodness, that sounds powerful!

    1. I saw the glowing reviews of this audio production by reviewers on Audible. I read the blurb about it and thought, let's give The Coming Storm a go. It sounds good. Well, I was floored by how much I learned... Kinda of overwhelmed with all the information I learned actually. I plan to listen to the information again.
