    In his celebrated best seller Catch Me If You Can, Frank Abagnale recounted his youthful career as a master imposter and forger. In The Art of the Steal, Abagnale tells the remarkable story of how he parlayed his knowledge of cons and scams into a successful career as a consultant to businesses on preventing financial foul play - while revealing to listeners how they can identify and outsmart perpetrators of fraud.

    Barbara says: "Financial fraud was never so interesting"
    "A very interesting book!"
    Overall

    Overall, a very interesting book. The author spends the majority of the time identifying various 'tricks' used to defraud companies and individuals of money. The categories include: checks, credit cards, the Internet, counterfeit money, etc.

    Many times throughout the book the author presents situations which seem innocuous until you hear the ways very clever thieves can take avantage of them.

    At times there are arguments which lack backup, particularly those regarding the Internet. I had trouble determining if the author skipped the technicals of his arguments or if they were simply based on the merits of "back in my day we didn't need fancy communications networks". In either event, this was a great book.

    Finally, answers to all those strange questions you'd like to ask your own doctor but haven't had the guts (or more likely the time) to do so.

    Dr. Jim Rudd says: "Can't recommend"
    "Could have been much better"
    Overall

    At times this book is exactly what the reader is expecting it to be, medical answers to common questions/misconceptions about the human body.

    HOWEVER, to get there, you must absolutely suffer through tedious dialogues between the book's co-authors.

    My recommendation, sorry audible, is to get the paper copy of this one. It will be far easier to skip the nonsense.

    James says: "Variety of Narrators &"
    "Excellent Publication, Narration Needs Help"
    Overall

    I agree with most other reviewers of this publication. The articles themselves are excellent! In fact, some are even so good that the listener doesn't have to struggle to get past the narration. None-the-less, the narration could be much better. What always makes me struggle is that this narrator is prone to add inflection in places that don't require it or, worse yet, actually hinder the information comprehension.

  • The Funny Thing Is...

    Ellen DeGeneres published her first book of comic essays, the #1 best selling My Point...and I Do Have One, way back in 1996. Not one to rest on her laurels, the witty star of stage and screen has since dedicated her life to writing a hilarious new book. That book is this audiobook.

    Heidi says: "Ellen's latest book- The Funny Thing Is..."
    "Trying so hard to like it..."
    Overall

    It think Ellen is GREAT! Her standup, talkshow, and first book are all funny. Unfortunately, I just didn't find this book to be terribly funny. Perhaps it's just me...
