A former Chairman of the Securities and Exchange Commission and former stockbroker doesn't like what he sees on Wall Street. With no holds barred, he tells the gruesome stories of how brokers, analysts, and corporate executives knowingly misled common investors to line their own pockets. Worse yet is that instead of scrutinizing these practices, government regulators and the media were often asleep and/or in bed with these scoundrels--knowing what was going on but saying and doing nothing. The excellent narrator, Scott Brick, modulates the author's seriousness and outrage in a way that lesser narrators would overplay or miss altogether. He understands every principle and nuance in this work. This startling cautionary tale will captivate both novice and veteran investors. T.W.
