Smart, educated and accomplished people, the pillars of our society try to cheat the stystem in the most convoluted and fascinating ways. This book has it all from adultery, perversion to greed theft and deception, scandals that have brought down presidents, clergy and famous people. This book had me riveted as I read of careers destroyed through greed and indescretion. There are 28 scandalous stories of people such as Thomas Jefferson, Catherine the Great, Bill Clinton, Jimmy Swaggart, Roman Polanski, etc. This is a great book which I found at Barnes & Noble which is also the publisher.
