Going Infinite by Michael Lewis Summary
When Michael Lewis first met Sam Bankman-Fried, he was the youngest billionaire in the world and the Gatsby of the cryptocurrency industry. After he shot up the Forbes billionaire list in what seemed like the blink of an eye, CEOs, celebrities, and even the heads of some of the world’s smallest countries competed for his time and money. Who was this disheveled man who sat through Zoom sessions with his eyes twitching while he played video games in the background? He wore cargo shorts and white socks that were too loose.
This is the issue that author Michael Lewis attempts to answer in his book Going Infinite by transporting readers into the head of a character named Bankman-Fried, whose rise and collapse provides a lesson in high-frequency trading, cryptocurrency, philanthropy, bankruptcy, and the court system. Going Infinite is Michael Lewis at the top of his game. It is both a psychological portrait and a financial roller-coaster trip, and it traces the mind-bending trajectory of a character who never liked the rules and was free to live by his own—until it all came crashing down. Lewis is at the top of his career in this book.
