Very informative of the trouble this evil man caused for his family

For a factual - - and honest - - take on Madoff and his family and his financial fraud, please read To Good To Be True, by Erin Arvedlund, who also wrote the finest book on the LIBOR rate rigging, Open Secret. [Madoff's wife and sons most certainly were aware of his crimes.]

A very well written book. If she writes more, I want to know so I can read it.

A revealing book. A great read.
Thanks Stephanie for telling us the true side.
You are very brave and strong.

Another sad story coming out of the financial disaster of 2008, but this time the victims are Madoff's son and his wife. And, again, even though they were obviously close to Bernie Madoff, they seemingly had zero idea of what he was actually up to and how many lives he was ruining. At the same time, the entire family seems so emotionally destructive towards each other that it is hard to feel a lot of sympathy for any of them.

A very haunting and sad read.
