FINALIST 2013 – Arthur Ellis Awards—Best Crime Non-Fiction
“Listeners of NPR’s Planet Money podcast, which has a knack for telling complicated financial stories in plain, vivid English, will note the same talent in Livesey.... A dogged reporter, he travels far beyond downtown Toronto to reconstruct the downfalls of Nortel, Stelco and [Conrad] Black’s Hollinger International, among others.”
“Compelling.... Livesey scores many perceptive points.... His writing is punchy and persuasive, fuelled by intelligence. He also nicely interweaves statistics, public-policy arguments and analysis and explanations of how the markets work (or don’t work...) with individual horror stories of financial planning and investing gone awry.”
—Winnipeg Free Press
“Essential reading not only for those with money to invest, but anyone concerned about the path to social and economic ruin we are following.”
—The Record (Kitchener)

Since I have not finished reading the book I am not in an ideal position to review it properly but so far what I have read I consider to be very well written & informative. However there are at least two errors which I know for a fact to be incorrect because they both pertain to Earl Jones whom I was very well aquainted with. He even stole some of my money. Beacuse I am not familiar with the other scams in the book it does leave me wondering how much of this is factual?
