In the first comprehensive account of this financial mastermind's epic Ponzi scheme, Catastrophe exposes the real story behind Madoff's upstanding facade - his confession, his family's involvement and his unlikely rise and incredible crash. The book defines and explains the whole diabolical debacle, including how he evaded SEC watchdogs and how his far reaching crime pervaded the world.
