Through Oppenheimer's in-depth reporting, you'll discover new revelations in this startling case, and become familiar with the trusting victims - ranging from non-profit Jewish charities to the likes of seemingly sophisticated individuals, such as actress Jane Fonda, who would "like to shake Madoff until his teeth fall out"; the scion of the Baskin-Robbins ice cream empire, who lost a bundle and was forced to rent out rooms in his house; and New Jersey Senator Frank Lautenberg. There's even Madoff's own sister-in-law, and talk show host Larry King, who apparently didn't ask the right questions when he invested. All lost their much-needed life savings, while others saw fortunes small and large evaporate in the greedy financial operations of one of history's all-time charlatans.

I enjoyed this book. Before I listened to the book I really didn't know much about the Madoff's. Now I know as much as I ever wanted to know and I thought the book did a good job explaining the past, present, and future. I also thought the book was well read.

What disappointed you about Madoff with the Money?
completely superficial, gossipy, repetitive. I didn't want high finance, but I did expect to learn something.
Would you ever listen to anything by Jerry Oppenheimer again?
can't judge by one book, proably not
Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Oliver Wyman?
He reads it as though he's a voice actor in a DIsney movie; the accents are overdone, the tone is lacking any seriousness. Not good for this subject.
If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Madoff with the Money?
all the fake Jewish/yiddish stuff
