Is There a Pyramid Scheme for Dummies Book?

Because I'd really like to start one. A large one. Details on the life of a pyramid scheme manager:
Convicted Ponzi schemer Bernie Madoff promoted a "culture of sexual deviance" at his New York headquarters that featured vast quantities of cocaine and drug-fueled parties with topless waitresses, according to details of a new lawsuit.

"Madoff's affinity for escorts, masseuses and attractive female employees was well known in the office culture," the complaint says. "A significant amount of the money stolen from investors went towards these lavish indulgences as well as other expenses for his employees, family and favorite feeders."[..]

The complaint, filed by California lawyer Joseph Cotchett on behalf of dozens of fraud victims, says coke was so rampant in his Manhattan headquarters that it was known as "The North Pole."
Well...they may have had bowls of coke, swarms of naked whores and a ton of booze at Madoff office parties; but I bet they didn't have a contest for Best Decorated Cube at their office halloween party. You know who does? This guy. And as I always say, who needs drugs, booze and whores when you have a receptionist with a flair for holiday decorations.
