    At its most basic level, Allied Capital is the story of Wall Street at its worst. But the story is much bigger than one little-known company. Fooling Some of the People All of the Time is an important call for effective law enforcement, free speech, and fair play.

    Overall

    A wonderful, albeit heavily detailed account, of Einhorn's search for corporate justice. Given what has happened in the capital markets the past several years, it is easier now to understand the incompetence of regulators. Still, it is a little curious that Einhorn found so few takers of his perspective among what would have appeared to be unbiased professionals (journalists, professors, investors). Also disappointed how casually he dismissed the abusive and illegal tactics of naked short selling. But he does tell a convincing tale and one that should make us think every time we read a glowing account from a Wall Street analyst.

    My biggest disappointment was the absence of the epilogue that is included in the newly published book version. Since Allied hit the wall after the completion of this book, I was very much looking forward to hearing how the market finally caught on to the systematic fraud and deception. It would be nice if Audible.com could offer this add-on to its customers who bought this book.
