We may say that honesty is the best policy, but history - to say nothing of business, politics, and the media - suggests otherwise. Ranging across the centuries and covering some of the greatest lies, ruses, and pranks of all time, A Treasury of Deception recounts the amazing true stories of charlatans, imposters, forgeries, military trickery, great escapes, media hoaxes, scientific frauds, government-sponsored deceptions, clever hucksters getting a taste of their own medicine, and instances of mendacity that almost defy description - not to mention shocking amounts of gullibility. Zestfully written, this treasury celebrates the infinite forms - whether noble or amusing, absurd or grim - that deception can take.
