About Michael Lewis

: From the bestselling author of The Big Short and Flash Boys, comes the story of FTX’s spectacular collapse and the enigmatic founder at its centre. Join author and financial journalist Michael Lewis, to celebrate the paperback release of Going Infinite: The Rise and Fall of a New Tycoon.

Sam Bankman-Fried wasn't just rich. Before he turned thirty, he'd become the world's youngest billionaire, making a record fortune in the crypto frenzy. CEOs, celebrities and world leaders vied for his time. At one point he considered paying off the entire national debt of the Bahamas so he could take his business there.
Then it all fell apart.
Who was this Gatsby of the crypto world, a rumpled guy in cargo shorts, whose eyes twitched across TV interviews as he played video games on the side, who even his million-dollar investors still found a mystery? What gave him such an extraordinary ability to make money - and how did his empire collapse so spectacularly?

As the man who was there when it happened, Michael was able to get to know Bankman-Fried during his epic rise. In conversation with a special guest, he will tell the story like no other, taking us through the mind-bending trajectory of a character who never liked the rules and was allowed to live by his own. Michael will uncover both a psychological portrait of a preternaturally gifted ‘thinking machine’, and a wild financial roller-coaster ride.

With the opportunity to ask your own questions, join Michael as he delves into a twenty-first-century epic of high-frequency trading and even higher stakes, of crypto mania and insane amounts of money, of hubris and downfall – a story no one could tell better
