WRITING/STORY: Good, not great. Balances the tedium of law/finance and the intrigue of white collar crime. A bit redundant, especially when revisiting concepts or using analogies.
NARRATION: Ok. Not a lot of energy put forth, but this is non-fiction, so I wasn't expecting an over-the-top performance. The narrator handled dialogue quite well.
EDIT/SOUND: Lots of missing consonants on the end of words - enough that it became distracting. Also could have used some treatment for sibilance. It's important to note that I could not listen to this title faster than 1.25x speed. It may have been the subject matter, but it took a lot more attention than most books.

The author did an incredible job capturing so much detail for the sake of highlighting the underlying themes about greed and justice, and portraying the divide between the lifestyles and motivations of the criminals in the story and the SEC & FBI. I particularily appreciate that the author often reminds the reader of who is who, since it's very easy to get lost in the sea of characters that the are involved in the story. Loved the narration; I felt like the dialouge scenes were really brought to life and sounded very real. Overall, awesome book.
