Colleen Cross’ “Anatomy of a Ponzi” is one of those books that makes you wonder “Are people really that stupid or is it just greed? Maybe both.” It boggles the mind to think that there are people in the world you can honestly believe that they can get a 500%, 800% or a 1,000% return on their investment. And it’s even more mind-boggling to think there are people who perpetrate these scams and get away with them for years.
“Anatomy of a Ponzi” is extremely well written. Cross knows her stuff who doesn’t confuse you with technical jargon while at the same time not talking down to you. The highlight of the book, to me, was a review of the all-time top ten global Ponzi schemes. It’s good to know there are stupid people around the world. Originally written in 2013, I also appreciated the fact that Cross updated the book just this month – January 2018.
My only complaint about this book was Randal Schaffer. There was just something about his voice that grated on me and he almost – almost – detracted from an excellent book.
This was a good presentation of some unsavory folks - a rogues gallery of some of the biggest thieves in history. I enjoyed reading it and appreciate the helpful material throughout and at the end advising what to look for and how to avoid Ponzi schemes. The narrator did a fine job keeping the story moving.
I was given this free review copy audiobook at my request and have voluntarily left this review.
