President Donald Trump's chief strategist Stephen Bannon is rarely in the spotlight.
"Bannon is one of the smartest people I know," Scaramucci said, adding that Bannon has read "every book" at Barnes & Noble twice.
Scarmucci praised Bannon's writing skills and can detect Bannon's style in some of President Trump's best speeches.
He also said Bannon understands the economic divide in the U.S. better than anyone.
That's not all Anthony Scaramucci had to say during his lively interview with Michael Wolff.

What does Wall Street love about Donald Trump? The overarching question at hand for the evening was readily answered.
"[Wall Street] sees a cleansing of the status quo in Washington -- they see a disruption of this tidal wave of regulation that's going to be rolled back," said Anthony Scaramucci.
The second question on everyone's mind is the lack of the repeal and replacement of Obamacare, the first item on President Trump's to-do list that failed.
"The report card is better than what the media says it is," Scaramucci said in an interview with the media writer Michael Wolff.
Over time, he said, Obamacare is bound to have problems, which will prompt the administration to return to the subject.
President Trump may have suffered a blow when it comes to health care, but his looming tax reform bill will get bipartisan support.
"Even President Obama in his last couple of years in office said our corporate income tax rates are too high," Scaramucci said.
Goldman Sachs (GS) alumni may occupy several high-profile jobs in President Trump's administration, but that doesn't mean the Wall Street firm can orchestrate a de facto takeover, says Anthony Scaramucci, a former employee of the investment bank who advises the new president.
The notion that all Goldman alums belong to a cabal, "and we've got the secret handshake is sort of nonsense," said Scaramucci.
One of the most controversial moments of the evening came when Scaramucci defended the Trump administration's plans to roll back the fiduciary rule.
