    Despite his money, this man was an utter failure. And this is proof that there are many more inventive (and possibly torturous) ways that humanity exacts justice than just prison.

      Charity Ava I don't agree...he left a substantial amount of his accumulated wealth to the poor upon his death so he wasn't a failure as a compassionate human being on some level

    What I love about his book is he added a full page of punctiation and asked the readers to add it where it is necessary.Brilliant. In that way,readers read while putting pieces of puzzle together.

    I always get a chuckle when folks mispronounce a city or a town. Malden is pronounced: Mall•din and Charlestown is pronounced the way it’s spelled. Dexter was definitely not a quitter. I wonder what happened to his children.

    “Random capital letters in the middle of sentences...’. If there’s no punctuation then there are no sentences. Lol. Great video. Love this story.

    1. Monique Cardell

      Romans 8:11 : long ago, Greeks and Romans wrote lots of "books" . They used no punctuation. Punctuation came later. The books were full of sentences. To make a sentence, you merely need a verb. And most sentences contain also a subject, an object and circumstantiel items. Punctuation is not needed as per the context, as Greeks and Romans proved it.

      Juniper S ...I agree. Pure genius. Uneducated and yet he could write is an accomplishment and then to satisfying the snobbish language demigods he adds a page of punctuation in the 2nd edition I love it

      His being tormented by their lack of acceptance was the natural consequence of him being such a colossal ass. The fact that he couldn't just buy love and respect from people actually restores my faith in humanity a bit.

      Really? Which do you think the poor and/or vulnerable need more? A bit of money, or to stop being beat, used, and exploited by him and people like him? You can't just throw money at your legacy and call yourself "redeemed" and he's rightly still considered a fool to this day.

    I wish I had this guy's luck! What an interesting story! After each successful business venture, I was like "No way!" and then you continued on with the next one, and I was absolutely incredulous. I really liked that story, except for the beating his wife for not mourning his faked death enough.
