TOO GOOD TO BE TRUE The Rise and Fall of Bernie Madoff

Earphones Award Winner

by | Read by Karen White

Biography & Memoir • 13 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2009

Arvedlund provides a fascinating view of the financial dealings of Bernie Madoff, who was at the helm of a $65 billion Ponzi scheme that broke wide open in late 2008. The author digs deeply into Madoff's career to unravel the secret maneuverings that eventually wiped out investors from coast to coast—many of whom had invested all their savings with Madoff. Karen White narrates in a steady tone that sounds like broadcast reporter breaking a complicated story. White's flawless performance, combined with Arvedlund's exposé, draws the listener into this compelling story of financial sleight of hand. Listeners will be tempted to listen to all 12 hours without a break. White's subtly inflected voice disappears into the background, placing the scandal—and those ruined by it—front and center. M.B.K.
