7:00 PM - 8:00 PMon Zoom

The May 1, 2023 book will be "Retail Gangster: The Insane, Real-Life Story of Crazy Eddie" by Gary Weiss. A biography of the spectacular rise and fall of Eddie Antar, better known as "Crazy Eddie," whose home electronics empire changed the world even as it turned out to be one of the biggest business scams of all time. The journalist Herb Greenberg called his death the "end of an era" and that couldn't be more true. Before Enron, before Madoff, before The Wolf of Wall Street, Eddie Antar's corruption was second to none. The Crazy Eddie fraud scheme is now taught in every business school across the United States. In Retail Gangster, investigative journalist Gary Weiss takes readers behind the scenes of one of the most unbelievable business scam stories of all time, a story spanning continents and generations, reaffirming the old adage that the truth is often stranger than fiction. We will meet via Zoom.
