Author Michael Lewis (MONEYBALL, THE BIG SHORT) knows the world of investing and the math savants who often inhabit its higher levels. His subject for this audiobook is the Bitcoin gazillionaire and super-eccentric Sam Bankman-Fried, who is currently on trial for defrauding investors in his Bitcoin exchange, FTX. Lewis narrates this gripping audiobook with relaxed authority and natural poise, both of which are perfect for an investigative biography. His writing and performance wisely avoid judging his subject or adding too much drama to the crazy storyline. The audiobook is also a lesson in the computer-based rapid-trading algorithms and other sophisticated practices that dominate today's investment companies. This background provides appropriate context for the subject's financial rationales and exploits--both of which make this such an absorbing audiobook.
