"Before he was even old enough to drink, he had bank accounts, a Ferrari, a mansion, a multi-million dollar corporation, and a desperate little secret . . . It was all a lie. Most of us can't imagine life getting much worse than it got for Barry Minkow, the one-time Wall Street wiz kid who catapulted his company to stardom and success only to see it exposed as a $300-million fraud. Most of us can't imagine spending more than seven years in federal prison and coming out owing victims $26 million. Most of us can't imagine our careers changing from FBI target to FBI trainer, from CEO to senior pastor, from con man to con catcher. Or can we? We've all slipped up. We've all failed. Cleaning Up is Barry Minkow's comeback story-a powerful a tale of redemption and inspiration, of second chances and setting things right. More than a decade from defrauding investors, today, as cofounder of the Fraud Discovery Institute, he's uncovered over a billion dollars worth of investment scams. "

First Edition: First Printing Hard Cover Fine in Fine Dust Jacket: 6.5 x 9.5 in.: 405 pages

Boards and pages are clean, unmarked, brightly colored, tightly bound and sharp cornered. "The story of Martha Stewart is the story of an incredible woman who had the brains to recognize opportunities when they dropped in her lap and who had the drive, energy, and determination to turn them into unprecedented success by gathering around her, and often ruthlessly exploiting, the talents, and sometimes even the loyalty of many people. The less visible story is how, and ultimately why, all this happened–the hidden world of Martha Stewart and her dreams. That is our story –the story of a little girl who never got over what life never gave her and wound up inventing for herself a past she had never known–a hologram of life so powerful that it not only convinced her personally but mesmerized the world. In time, the quiet little girl from the house on Elm Place became the richest self-made businesswoman in America–by selling the world all her missing parts. This is the story of what was missing, why it was missing, and how she turned it into a billion dollars."
