News & Opinion: No One Would Listen

By: Dylan Schleicher @ 8:03 PM – Filed under: Management & Workplace Culture

No One Would Listen: A True Financial Thriller is the new book by Harry Markopolos that details his knowledge of the Bernie Madoff scheme, his attempted reports of said scheme (when it was $5 billion deep), and how no one would listen to him until the scheme finally reached $65 billion. The book doesn't come out until tomorrow, but Audible has a really nice audio production of the book launching today, and they're offering the first chapter for free. Take a listen here, and purchase the full audio book there as well. Please, don't be deterred by the book's title - it's a great audio production! Meanwhile, we'll begin shipping copies of the hardcover edition tomorrow am. It's another compelling glimpse into the situation that affected all of our lives, and will for some time to come.
