A memoir by one of those 80's yuppie schmucks. This one is afflicted with manic depression, emphasis on the manic part, so the more interesting parts of the book deal with his crazy, obsessive, reckless, scamming, over-sexed, money-burning frenzies.

Oh, and he was involved in a major international art fraud case.

I didn't like him, his writing style, or aspects of the book, but it was still interesting, and it reminded me of some of my manic friends, except on a grander, more screwed up scale.

I checked out his website and he's now offering services advising other bipolar people. For $250 an hour, which made me think he's still a con man.
