Catch Me If You Can | [Frank W. Abagnale]

Catch Me If You Can

Frank W. Abagnale was one of the most daring conmen, forgers, imposters, and escape artists in history. In his brief but notorious criminal career, Abagnale donned a pilot's uniform and copiloted a Pan Am jet, masqueraded as the supervising resident of a hospital, practiced law without a license, passed himself off as a college sociology professor, and cashed over $2.5 million in forged checks, all before he was 21. His story is now a film starring Leonardo DiCaprio and Tom Hanks.

Publisher's Summary

Frank W. Abagnale, alias Frank Williams, Robert Conrad, Frank Adams, and Robert Monjo, was one of the most daring conmen, forgers, imposters, and escape artists in history. In his brief but notorious criminal career, Abagnale donned a pilot's uniform and copiloted a Pan Am jet, masqueraded as the supervising resident of a hospital, practiced law without a license, passed himself off as a college sociology professor, and cashed over $2.5 million in forged checks, all before he was 21. Known by the police of 26 foreign countries and all 50 states as "The Skywayman," Abagnale lived a sumptuous life on the lam - until the law caught up with him. Now recognized as the nation's leading authority on financial foul play, Abagnale is a charming rogue whose hilarious, stranger-than-fiction international escapades and ingenious escapes - including one from an airplane - make Catch Me If You Can an irresistible tale of deceit. It's also a film starring Leonardo DiCaprio and Tom Hanks.

    "So dissapointed."
    What would have made Catch Me If You Can better?

    I gave up after about one hour.


    What could Frank W. Abagnale have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

    It read as if written by a 16 year old for pre teens.


    Any additional comments?

    It was all bad!

    "Lots of intrigue!"

    Riveting story that has way more detail than the excellent movie of the same name.

    "If you liked the movie you'll love this"

    The book tells a little more about why he went this direction in his life and provides extra sinarios that would have made the movie too long.

    What I like most about this book is the many cracks he discovers in our monetary system and how he goes about mining them. Only now he is richer than ever and discovering the many perfectly legal cracks that exist in our monetary system.

    If you are observant you can spot the many perfectly legal cracks in the system. Just DON'T become a terrorists or believe blindly in the rapture stay grounded in the human condition it's far more interesting and fullfilling!!

    "Catch me if you can"

    I really enjoyed this book. The reader was excellent. After reading this story, I wondered just what Frank Abaganale could have accomplished in life at a young age, had he used his amazing intelligence and observation ability in a more postive way.

    "Fact or fiction"

    This book is a great read and at times put a smile on your face. Never gets dull and keeps moving at a good rate. The narrator is first class and keeps you wanting for more. I give this audiobook 4 out of 5 stars because it is very hard to believe this is all fact.

    "Better than Fiction!!"

    A wilder story could not have been imagined. Although the movie was very good, the book was better. Great narration adds to the story. Crazy trip, this guy must have had brass ones to do some of the things he did. Wow!!
