Summary
With its origins rooted in one of the Wall Street Journal's most emailed stories ever, 'The Monopolists' is the inside story of how the game of Monopoly came into existence, the heavy embellishment of its provenance by Parker Brothers and multiple media outlets, the lost female originator of the game, and one man's lifelong obsession to tell the true story about the game's questionable origins
