I was hesitant to read this book because I was afraid it would be full of financial information and terminology. There was a bit but it was always explained well. Instead, I can say that this biography reads like a John Grisham thriller. This book is a page turner. The sad thing is that it is a true account of greed and dishonesty. A good book and interesting read. It made me sad though. It is difficult to consider all the harm caused by the evil, crazy man named Bernie Madoff. There are so many facts and names in this book that I had to read it slowly to comprehend and put the plot together as I read. What a web of pure evil that man spun. The reader comes away with a feeling of revulsion at what he put his children and "friends" through in the name of creating wealth.
