About this deal

One aspect of the book I quite enjoyed, was that it challenges the stereo type of Germany as a clean, boring financial system.

McCrum tells terrifyingly how he and others were personally targeted by the company, using private investigators and worse.

McCrum got some information from whistleblowers that everything wasn't all-right in the company which was hailed as the German ideal fintec startup.On the other hand, if you’re coming to Money Men from scratch, looking for a quick introduction to a wild story, then your best bet is probably to start off with McCrum’s original journalism and then come back to the book. As McCrum dug deeper, he encountered a story stranger and more dangerous than he ever imagined- a world of short sellers and whistleblowers, pornographers and private militias, hackers and spies. An enthralling story of a rogue business, Wirecard, told like an adventure - which it clearly was for those that set up the business and for the extraordinary Financial Times like Dan McCrum that chased it down.

Later in life, too, I would come to understand how fear and insecurity and clinging to worldly possessions can become a driving force in one’s life.What was not clear at the time — not at all — was that this choice, made for perfectly good reasons, was what seemed like a step down would actually become a path that led me to a pinnacle of success and great fortune. Since the book is based on a number of sources telling their stories to the author I can only assume the lack of Braun in it is because McCrum did not have any whistleblower or other sources close enough to the CEO. The story could have only been topped if McCrum discovered verifiable evidence (as it surely exists) of the local dart-throwers scrawling their mark on the legal documents for a coupla’ spins of the fruit machine.
