Product Description

In How to Smell a Rat, Ken Fisher takes an engaging and informative look at recent and historic examples of fraudsters, how they operated, and how they can be easily avoided. Fisher shows readers the quick, identifiable features of potential financial fraudsters. Readers will learn the questions to ask when assessing a money manager and how to spot red flags.

There should be a premium for integrity. Asking the right questions and looking for the right setups goes a long way toward finding a firm that will protect your interests and your assets. Trusted financial expert and bestselling author Ken Fisher will help readers avoid would-be embezzlers.


“While too late for the victims of Bernie Madoff, this volume is ideal for anyone wary of encountering fraudulence in the investment community. Scott Thomsen’s casual delivery makes him sound like a friend who can demystify the complexity of selecting a portfolio manager. . . . Direct and to the point, Thomsen’s narration enhances a text written in everyday terms.”

“In the wake of Bernie Madoff's $65 billion Ponzi scheme comes this book that helps listeners invest safely and identify financial scams big and small. As straightforward as it sounds, the book is surprisingly entertaining, featuring an allegory of a cautious investor, stories about fraudsters throughout history and the five rules to evade scams. Scott Thomsen delivers a vivid reading and bypasses the pitfalls of dryness and one-dimensionality that plague so many narrators of financial and business audio books. The material allows Thomsen to loosen his collar and convey the information (and help the medicine go down) with personality and panache.”
