    A reviewer

    I thought that this book was an accurate portrayal of what has gone wrong in society. We have seen similar stories on the news of people who cheat or steal to get to the top. Fritz and his family have focused on the acquisition of material wealth, and they have lost sight of what is important in life! His family and all of his relationships crumbled because of the fact that he and his wife did not communicate with each other. This should be a lesson to corporate America!

    Where has this guy been?

    Hysterical. I bought a second copy so I could circulate it to my friends faster.

    Move over, John Grisham and Tom Wolfe!

    Excellent read. Sabin Willett has captured the culture of our times better than anyone else. His work is a quick read, well done in every respect.

    The New Tom Wolfe

    A fantastic satirical stab at all that's wrong with the social and professional elite. At times hilarious and at times poignant---especially the ending. Among other things, it's obvious Willett knows about life as a lawyer. After reading this book, you will never again attack your Blackberry with quite the same intensity and purpose. Reminded me of Tom Wolfe's Bonfire and Man in Full and also a bit of Nelson DeMille's Gold Coast.

    Do judge this book by its cover!

    This novel about a uncommunicative wealthy family whose world ships away piece by piece is at times hysterical and often poignant. Definitely a good value.
