A well written book investigating the life and fraud of Bernie Madoff. The pacing of this book is excellent making it very readable. a sobering look at greed and betrayal. Well worth reading if you are interested.

A fascinating book that reads like a novel. One of the better books on Madoff himself.

I liked this book. First, I was obsessed with the story of Bernie Madoff and the Ponzi scheme when it broke. The book shows how heinous the SEC was in handling this case. While I felt sorry for some people who lost their money, most should have had a clue that something was not right. Denial and greed - a potent combination.

The wizard of lies and how greed has destroyed so many lives - including his son's. A fascinating book that reads like a novel.
