Synopsis: An intriguing look at Bernie Madoff the man, and his scam
Madoff with the Money is a deeply disturbing portrait of Bernie Madoff based on dozens of exclusive, news-making interviews. From the values Madoff was taught growing up in the working class town of Laurelton, Queens to his high-life on Wall Street and the super-rich enclaves of Palm Beach and the French Riviera, bestselling author Jerry Oppenheimer follows the disgraced money manager's trail as he works his way up the social and economic ladder, and eventually scams his trusting clients in a $50 billion Ponzi scheme.
Through Oppenheimer's in-depth reporting, you'll discover new revelations in this startling case, and become familiar with the trusting victims-ranging from non-profit Jewish charities to the likes of seemingly sophisticated individuals such as actress Jane Fonda who would "like to shake Madoff until his teeth fall out," the scion of the Baskin-Robbins ice cream empire who lost a bundle and was forced to rent out rooms in his house, and New Jersey Senator Frank Lautenberg. There's even Madoff's own sister-in-law and talk show host Larry King, who apparently didn't ask the right questions when he invested. All lost their much-needed life savings, while others saw fortunes small and large evaporate in the greedy financial operations of one of history's all-time charlatans.
Madoff With the Money
While there may be other books on the Bernie Madoff debacle, none digs as deep or goes as far to uncover the truth behind the man, and his incredible scam.
From the Inside Flap:
"I said to Bernie, 'What's going on? What are you getting ready for?" because he's drinking this weird mix–whiskey and taking this other stuff to calm his stomach–and all he says is, 'I'm getting ready to do battle. I'm getting ready to make a decision.' That's all he said. It sounds nuts, but it's more like the bizarre world of Madoff."
—From Madoff with the Money
Through Jerry Oppenheimer's in-depth reporting, you'll discover Bernie Madoff as the high school English class cheat, the gung-ho ROTC cadet who pulls a fast one on Uncle Sam, and the ambitious macher who has very special reasons for choosing "Josie College" as his lawful wedded wife. The exclusive material also includes a Madoff family member who speaks out for the first time. You'll find new revelations in this startling case and become familiar with the trusting victims—ranging from nonprofit Jewish charities to the likes of seemingly sophisticated individuals such as actress Jane Fonda, who would "like to shake Madoff until his teeth fall out" to the scion of the Baskin-Robbins ice cream empire, who lost a bundle and was forced to rent out rooms in his house. There's even a number of Madoff's own family members, including his sister and sister-in-law and talk show host Larry King, who apparently didn't ask the right questions when they invested. Some lost their much-needed life savings, while others saw fortunes small and large evaporate in the greedy financial operations of one of history's all-time charlatans. Oppenheimer also unearths details on Madoff's "stockbroker guru" doing business with the Mob, the adultery hush money, and then there are the many compulsions, obsessions, and fetishes that read like something out of a psychology textbook, and much, much more.
Madoff will spend the rest of his life in prison. But the mindboggling case of the fraudster is far from over, and will continue beyond many of our lifetimes, as an army of federal prosecutors, lawyers, and forensic accountants search for the missing money, and try to find out who knew what and when. His wife? His sons? His brother? Others?
Engaging and at times unbelievable, Madoff with the Money weaves stories of Madoff's past with those of the present and delves into the details of the elusive man who lost investors billions. While a lot has been written about the Bernie Madoff debacle, no other account digs as deep or goes as far to uncover the truth behind the man and his incredible scam.
