Book News Annotation:

Got a hankering to perform thoracic surgery? Pony up a few thousand dollars and get yourself a knife. Care to give expert testimony in criminal trials, propose legislation, or control the lives of hundreds of people in a major corporation? Ditto, except for the knife, maybe. Fake degrees from colleges abound, complete with transcripts, diplomas, and glowing recommendation letters. Apart from having to endure Homecoming in a post office box, many people buy these degrees without qualms, enriching both themselves and the criminals pandering to them. Ezell and Bear, retired FBI agent and educator respectively, and experts in the field collectively, expose how these degrees get on the market and who buys them. They show how to find if a college or degree is legitimate and give very useful lists of fake colleges, degrees, and accreditation organizations to help sort out job applicants, candidates, and annoying coworkers.
