Michael Lewis, the bestselling author of The Big Short and Moneyball, has revealed that he has almost finished writing his book on Sam Bankman-Fried (SBF) and the collapse of the FTX crypto exchange.
The upcoming book is titled Going Infinite: the Rise and Fall of a New Tycoon, and Lewis initially stumbled on to the subject of Bankman-Fried in late 2021, after a friend had asked him to meet the FTX founder and get a read on him.
Speaking at the 2023 Bitcoin Conference in Miami on May 19, Lewis didn’t offer a specific publishing date but did indicate that he wants the book to drop around the time the criminal trial against SBF begins in October.
A quick search on Amazon does show however that the book has a tentative release date of Oct. 3.
Lewis was also reportedly close to finishing the book right before FTX infamously imploded in November 2022 and the subsequent criminal charges were brought against SBF, adding an entirely new angle to the story behind the former billionaire crypto mogul.
