Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?
Absolutely! I am getting my masters in economic crime and fraud management so this book was right up my alley. My classmates (and in theory my professors) would enjoy this just as much. It doesn't just focus on the most recent scandals, but goes back to scandals from the 1930s. Good narration as well.

By "better," I mean it is light and entertaining, as business fare goes, and has enough detail to give a sketch of the histories, personalities and so on. By "worse" I mean it dwells on superficial but attention-getting things like the perks of the scandal-mongers and their more glaring eccentricities, rather than really digging into deal details. In this phase of my business-finance education and sophistication, I tire quickly of the list of silly consumer goods and the mistresses and such that many of these characters pursue. So, I listen to this as a "relaxation" business book, when I am a little fatigued or distracted. In those times when I am more focused and really wanting to learn with precision, this shallow flashiness bores me. A person earlier or less sophisticated in business studies may benefit from the listenable quality of this -- I would term it "sugar coated."
