Number Go Up by Zeke Faux 📈
An engaging narrative by Bloomberg journalist Zeke Faux.
Number Go Up explores the intertwined stories of Tether and Sam Bankman-Fried. Unveil Tether's secrets leads to a gripping account, reminiscent of fiction.
The book provides an insider's view, culminating in Bankman-Fried's arrest. Comparable to captivating non-fiction classics, it offers a compelling look at the crypto world.
Why Read: It's like a non-fiction rollercoaster – you'll be on the edge of your seat, even without the metaphoric loops and turns.
Plot Twist: Tether, Sam Bankman-Fried, and a rollercoaster of crypto drama.
Unsolicited Advice for Murderers by Jesse Q. Sutanto (Vera Wong's) 🕵️♀️
Murder mystery with a dash of NFts by Jesse Q. Sutanto.
Unsolicited Advice for Murderers revolves around an elderly tea expert solving a murder in Chinatown.
The unexpected inclusion of NFTs at the core of the mystery adds a delightful twist, making it a unique and enjoyable read for those interested in both crime and crypto.
Why Read: Cryptocurrency meets detective work in Chinatown – a thrilling combo you never knew you needed.
Unexpected Element: NFTs in a murder mystery. Who knew solving crimes could be so modern?
Going Infinite by Michael Lewis ⚠️
Critiqued for its overly enthusiastic portrayal of Sam Bankman-Fried by Michael Lewis.
Going Infinite is informative, but it lacks a balanced perspective. The access the author had to the going-ons of FTX and to SBF makes it the buzz book of the year.
Why Read: Did the most celebrated journalist writer gloss over the negative aspects in portrayal of the fallen crypto billionaire? Remember, this is the same guy who dished out The Big Short and Moneyball.
Warning Signs: A bit too much love for Bankman-Fried, minus the balanced perspective. Did he get too close? You will find out.
