Fakes, Frauds, and Other Malarkey: 301 Amazing Stories and How Not to Be Fooled

Fakes, Frauds, and Other Malarkey: 301 Amazing Stories and How Not to Be Fooled Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Nearly everyone is deceived at one time or another. Fakes, Frauds & Other Malarkey is a good-natured yet passionate analysis of deception--from its innocent roots in imaginative play to the poison fruit of the cruelest scams. It offers hilarious and heartbreaking glimpses into the schemes of hoaxers in the fields of art, literature, science, medicine, exploration, education, finance and religion. This book offers special insights into the nature of spiritual fraud in history and in modern America. Even while Jesus told his followers to be as harmless as doves, he also reminded them to be as wise as serpents. Neither is easy.

Synopsis:

Lindskoog offers a good-natured yet passionate analysis of the nature of deception--from its healthy roots in imaginative play to the poison fruit of cruel scams.
