No One Would Listen: A True Financial Thriller | [Harry Markopolos]

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.

Publisher's Summary

No One Would Listen: A True Financial Thriller is exactly what the title promises. This is more than another book about the Bernie Madoff scandal, this is a fast-paced, blow-by-blow, true-crime story that you have to hear to believe. In a true David and Goliath tale, the underdog number cruncher uncovers the largest financial fraud in history, and has to fight everything and everyone in the system to bring it down. Harry Markopolos and his team of financial sleuths tell first-hand how they cracked Madoff’s $65 billion Ponzi scheme yet, amazingly, the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) refused to hear the truth for nearly 10 years. Told from the perspective of the ultimate whistleblower in modern corporate memory, No One Would Listen is bound to be the definitive narrative of this scandal.

This special edition includes an exclusive 10th chapter available only in audio, featuring testimony from three victims of the Madoff scheme who came in to the Audible studios to share their shocking and heartbreaking stories. In addition, David Kotz, the Inspector General of the SEC, speaks candidly about his investigation. Throughout the audiobook, you’ll also hear scathing commentary from congressional leaders on the blatant failures of the commission. No One Would Listen is more than an audiobook. It's a lasting audio testament to the largest white-collar crime in history.

    "Suspense in every moment!"

    This is a great book. It keeps you on the edge and intrigued all the time even though we all know what the outcome was for Madoff. Amazing how one man and his small army brough down the biggest financial fraud in history. It is a long book, but worth it.

    "SEC doesn't work"

    I thoroughly enjoyed this book. The writer knows where the bodies are buried. The industry watchdogs (SEC) are checking paperwork and have no idea how the industry actually works or doesn't work. You will be shocked that the SEC could not get what everyone on wall street already knew, Bernie was a fraud. Regulatory agencies dont work because the people running them are not former industry persons but lawyers. Mark also makes it clear what needs to happen to have real reform on Wall street.
    The story was compelling and worthwhile to listen too. You will not regret purchasing and listening to this audio book.

    "Shocking"

    Listening to the story unfold was quite tedious but then you come to realize that the SEC and others in the industry had this going on right in front of them for years. That is shocking. Then the long story becomes clear. Other readers have commented about the eccentricities of Mr. Markopolos - and this is why no one listened. We MUST listen to the voices that are often opposite to the patterns we want to hear, so that we can at least invest or act with better judgement. If we choose to ignore then we get what we deserve.

    "Very good listen"

    I listen to 50 or more books a year, this one has been one of the best in the last year. It's a great book to anyone interested in wall street, scams, and in this case, the complete failure of a government agency.

    "Enjoyed but technical"

    I enjoyed the first part of this book, it is cleaver how many ways you can say 'no one would listen'. I have an interest in financial instrument yet found this book got to sound like a court document. Read it now as it will be out of date by Xmas 2010.
