Michael Lewis in Conversation with Andrew Ross Sorkin


When author Michael Lewis first met Sam Bankman-Fried, he was the world’s youngest billionaire and crypto’s Gatsby. CEOs, celebrities, and leaders of small countries all vied for his time and cash after he catapulted onto the Forbes billionaire list. Who was this rumpled guy whose eyes twitched across Zoom meetings as he played video games on the side?

New York Times journalist Andrew Ross Sorkin sits down with the bestselling author for a not-to-be missed conversation answering this question and more as explored in Lewis’ latest book Going Infinite. The story of FTX’s spectacular collapse and the enigmatic founder at its center reveals Lewis at the top of his game, tracing the mind-bending trajectory of a character who never liked the rules and was allowed to live by his own—until it all came undone.

A signed copy of Going Infinite: The Rise and Fall of a New Tycoon is included with ticket.

Michael Lewis is the best-selling author of Liar’s Poker, Moneyball, The Blind Side, The Big Short, The Undoing Project, and The Fifth Risk.

Andrew Ross Sorkin is an award-winning journalist for The New York Times and co-anchor of CNBC’s Squawk Box. He is also the founder and editor-at-large of DealBook. Sorkin is the author of the bestseller Too Big to Fail and co-producer of the HBO film. He is also co-creator of the drama series Billions.
