    As much psychological as financial, this collection of the history of the Ponzi scheme is both intriguing and very detailed. Even if you're not necessarily into business or economics, this is still quite a vast history diving into the people behind the crimes and how they met with downfall.

    While I was on vacation I read "Anatomy of a Ponzi Scheme" amazon/Anatomy-Ponzi-S by Colleen Cross, Author If you haven't read it, so worth getting. I couldn't put it down and am going to re-read it, along with all the highlighted passages I need to take a close look at. It went beyond Madoff and detailed what to look for - and what the difference is between a Ponzi and a Pyramid and what to look for. It laid it out in really straight forward terms so I wasn't talking over (husband) when I insis [...]

    Make no mistake about it. Ponzi schemes are more prevalent and devastating than ever. That’s why I’m so pleased to see author Colleen Cross provide a comprehensive look at the topic, with useful tips on how to avoid investing with these persuasive con artists. She brings a clearer understanding of these schemes and a broad overview starting with Charles Ponzi (infamous for selling Florida swampland, among other things) and ending with more recent and larger fiascos such as Bernie Madoff’s [...]

    I received this book from a first-reads giveaway. I think the subject matter is very interesting, but, overall, I found this to be a very shallow interpretation of the material. In well-researched non-fiction book I expect a detailed reference section, which was absent here. The author often made very general statements and then failed to reference them (e.g. describing personality traits of scammers). I feel like much of the information gathered here could be obtained in a couple of hours on .


  • Trevor Lockwood

    If you research a subject, no matter what it is, then you can cobble together a book. This is what seems to have happened here. Ponzi is a well-known scam. This book doesn't add much to that except to itemise a number of scams.


  • Tony Parsons

    I am fascinated with this brilliant man, I'd luv 2 win/read this book


  • Jared Tipton

    Great little read on the subject. Not a ton of new insights but there are some interesting things that make it worthwhile.
