Product Details


“This book is ludicrously compelling. I, quite literally, couldn’t put it down—and I don’t even care about crypto.”—Evan Osnos, National Book Award–winning author of Age of Ambition

“This book is what happens when the funniest financial journalist in America takes on the funniest story in modern finance. The results are as darkly hilarious as you could hope for.”—Matt Levine, Money Stuff columnist

“Business journalists are not usually lauded for their bravery, but it takes guts to gaze into the abyss of late-stage capitalism, never mind parachute directly into it. [Number Go Up] is a kind of hero’s journey. . . . Riveting.”—Jessica Pressler, special correspondent at Vanity Fair, producer of Inventing Anna

Number Go Up is an instant classic.”—Kit Chellel, co-author of Dead in the Water
