  • No One Would Listen: A True Financial Thriller

    No One Would Listen is the exclusive story of the Harry Markopolos-lead investigation into Bernie Madoff and his $65 billion Ponzi scheme. While a lot has been written about Madoff's scam, few actually know how Markopolos and his team - affectionately called "the Fox Hounds" by Markopolos himself - uncovered what Madoff was doing years before this financial disaster reached its pinnacle. Unfortunately, no one listened, until the damage of the world's largest financial fraud ever was irreversible.

    Brendan says: "Shocking, terrific"
    "Worth credits you wont use"
    Overall

    This book reminds me of "Confessions of an Economic Hitman" The author is not writing about Madoff. To his credit the book is sold partialy as a dialouge of what the author's involvement was.
    If you're looking for a book about Madoff, look elsewhere. Nothing more then a long "I told you so" to everyone. Disappointing to say the least.

    In little more than half a decade, Facebook has gone from a dorm-room novelty to a company with 500 million users. It is one of the fastest growing companies in history, an essential part of the social life not only of teenagers but hundreds of millions of adults worldwide. As Facebook spreads around the globe, it creates surprising effects, even becoming instrumental in political protests from Colombia to Iran.

    Kenneth says: "Great history, poor analysis. TERRIBLE recording."
    "one sided"
    Overall

    Not balanced. Comes dangerously close to being nothing more then a promo piece.
    An interesting read but if your read accidental billionaires (not balanced either) you will see what i mean.

    Hopefully Sorkin's work is of higher calibur.
