Wonder Boy: Barry Minkow

The Kid Who Swindled Wall Street
A non fiction book by

Long out of print, this is the story of Barry Minkow, teen-age whiz-kid and swindler extraordinaire. His rise and fall symbolized his times--the go-go, business-friendly Eighties--and even made 60 Minutes. Daniel Akst was there for the whole ride, profiling Minkow in the Los Angeles Times as a young entrepreneur and then prying the lid off his scam at the most inopportune moment. After a career as a pastor and fraud investigator, Minkow is in trouble with the law once again, making the release of Wonder Boy in Kindle format especially timely. Originally published by Scribner.
