DUPED!: TRUE STORIES OF THE WORLD’S BEST SWINDLERS by Andreas Schroeder

Posted on Updated on

In a mixture of narrative prose and comics, Duped! shares several short stories of some of the world’s biggest and most infamous con artists.  Whether fabricating an alien invasion so believably that thousands of people fled their homes or convincing the world’s most prominent scientists and journalists to study a fake ancient tribe in the Phillipines for almost ten years–the men and women in this book were clever enough to fool even the most intelligent of people and in some cases, cheat them out of millions of dollars.  Personally, I found this book fascinating! It will likely appeal to kids and teens in grades 4 and up, particularly those who like stories about con artists and strange-but-true events.
