The author really knows how to write a good story and I sailed along with the fascinating narrative.
I didn't understand how he thought he was going to make "dynastic wealth" with a baldness miracle cure that wasn't really a success for him personally. Also, the inventor wore a toupee. Hmmm. Just because a person goes to Harvard doesn't mean he's smart in every way.
Later in the book, he quotes from Crime and Punishment and has an epiphany about how some people feel they can justify their crimes because they believe they are doing something extraordinary. Curing baldness would be extraordinary, but in the end--there was no miracle cure. And what he goes down for is not so extraordinary, having nothing to do with curing baldness and everything to do with making lots and lots of money. He also could've used HGH legitimately in his other business and achieved the same end. So his epiphany didn't really work for me, unless I misunderstood it. Maybe making loads of dough was his something extraordinary.
I would have liked to hear what happened to Lance of the Toupee and how the author has fared since all the legal business.
It's a good read and I recommend it if you are into this kind of story.
