The story of Lou Pearlman s half billion dollar fraud is one that needs to be told but by someone who is able to write fairly and clearly This book is bloated and repetitive with the author adding his own opinions throughout It s an almost tabloid style report that skips over details about the forming of the boy bands and instead spends about 100 pages on the boring history of Pearlman and blimps The book contains a number of errors both factual and cultural It also hints at Pearlman s sexuality in a gossipy way without having any solid evidence It s only worth reading if you want minute details of his air corporations or want a text in how to trick people into believing everything that s on paper for example Pearlman used an accounting firm with letterhead that actually just a fake address and a phone line to his office and no one ever thought to check out the documents but not if you want information on Pearlman and boy bands Just as you can t trust anything Pearlman says don t trust the cover of this book it s not about boy bands but about a mentally ill huckster who showed how easy it is to trick gullible investors and get away with it for many years

I came across a reference to this book in an article I was reading and thought it would be good to go straight to the source to find out about Lou Pearlman and his fantastic con Sad to say I learned about the utter disdain this author has for pop music and its fans nothing really new about the con thoughI was particularly skived out by the constant insinuation that Pearlman was homosexual and liked young men offering second hand anecdotes instead of actual evidence The way several people were characterized was also off putting With no concrete proof or source was I supposed to just take the author s world for every thing he said And what exactly does this have to do with the conThis is tabloid sensationalizing than actual reporting in my opinion I ll continue to search for a factual account somewhere else
