This is a collection of anecdotes about men and women who have lost millions through generosity, greed, fraud, failure, blindness and sheer determination. "Champagne" Norah Docker is but one, spending her way through three husbands, three fortunes, yachts, jewels, furs and a gold-plated Daimler. Then there are the most eccentric Schlumpf brothers whose 60 million collection of antique automobiles included 123 vintage Bugattis which became the object of a government plot. The author also wrote " The Risk Takers".
