Miles Away... Worlds Apart - Alan Sakowitz, Alan Sakotwitz The true story of how Rothstein, a prominent Florida attorney, sought out investors - in addition to the psychology around relationships and the ever present Trojan horse in a Ponzi scheme - was absolutely fascinating. Mr. Sakowitz was able to get to the heart of why such schemes often work: prominence in the community and the desire to be part of a 'select few'. With some good old-fashioned common sense and due diligence, Mr. Sakowitz was able to prevent others from seeking returns through Rothstein's house of cards. A good read with praise to those in Mr. Sakowitz's life who are worlds apart.
