Doesn't add much more that a lot of details.
Arvedlund's book is a mostly boring financial account of the scandal, with little inside information into the why and how of the biggest ponzi scheme ever. Why not focus more on investigating the more interesting questions of why and when the scam started? It It seems like she is just trying to cash in on the Barron's article she wrote, which itself had little new information compared to the marhedge article that appeared before hers. Markopolis' account is much more interesting, containing a narrative that follows the timing of the event and his personal account of those events.
Her's is however, thoroughly researched and presumably the most through and detailed account.

Dry and Unorganized
comes off like a book report. all the facts are there but there is no insight. the story is not told in any comprehendible fashion. The author jumps around chronologically and with the subject matter in each chapter and within the chapters. Seems like she rushed to get this book out and this would be really a first edit with probably another 6 months of work needed on the book. But hey who am I? I've never written a book. These are just my opinions.
