 "A memoir with the page-turning excitement of a great mystery, and a delightful glimpse into the world of deception that is also a profound philosophical investigation. A masterpiece."

Oskar Eustis, Director of The Public Theater

"A riveting ledger of one man’s education, a parable about the lines between grifters and marks, a moral man and an amoral one. Buy this book — it’s cheaper than not buying it.”

Jelani Cobb, Staff Writer at The New Yorker

"A sublime enlightenment. A disappointment only in that it came to an end."

Tom Hanks, Two-time Academy Award Winner
