Summary
"There's one born every minute! Suckers, that is. But before you conclude you'd never be one of them, take a look inside. Written by a pair of investigative journalists who've spent decades exposing scam artists, this is the definitive guide to the most audacious, outrageous, and ambitious frauds, fakes, and swindles of the past two centuries. Each carefully crafted account conveys the charisma--and the cruelty--of its extraordinary leading character." -- Page [4] cover
