. . . by Diana Henrique of the NYT. This is the book on which the HBO movie about Bernie Madoff and history's biggest Ponzi scheme is based. Henrique does a great job of explaining the financial shenanigans without getting all bogged down. Her telling of the tale gives credibility to how Mrs. Madoff and the Madoff sons could have been innocent bystanders. The SEC and FBI come off as paper tigers until, finally, the sons turn the old man in. (Otherwise, they'd be accomplices.) The book reads a lot like a Greek tragedy. You watch a man who is rich, powerful and widely respected destroy himself, his family and those wh trusted him. $50+ billion! Pffft!

Haven't read the book, but got the opportunity to see the movie. Very well done, and an all-star cast. Worth the watch IMHO.
