Fakes, Frauds & Other Malarkey: 301 Amazing Stories and How Not to be Fooled
Fakes, Frauds & Other Malarkey: 301 Amazing Stories and How Not to be Fooled

Nearly everyone is deceived at one time or another. Here well-known literary critic Kathryn Lindskoog presents a good-natured yet passionate analysis of deception−from its innocent roots in imaginative play to the poison fruit of the cruelest scams. It offers hilarious and heartbreaking glimpses into the schemes of hoaxers in the fields of art, literature, science, medicine, exploration, education, finance and religion. This book also offers special insights into the nature of spiritual fraud in history and in modern America. Even while Jesus told his followers to be as harmless as doves, he also reminded them to be as wise as serpents. Neither is easy.

This witty, compassionate book issues a sprightly plea for plain dealing in a fallen world of deceit and doublespeak. This book is for readers who enjoy a good yarn; thinkers concerned about the ethics crisis in our society; speakers in search of sparkling illustrations and anyone who wants to avoid being fooled. It contains true stories of spoofs, bunkum, ballyhoo and criminal poppycock, plus lies and lives of more than 60 great hoaxers with an expose of deceit in all areas of life. 288 pp. with an epilogue, Biblical references and a recommended reading list.

Kathryn Lindskoog, M.A., has been uncovering fakes and forgeries since she was 18 years old. She has taught at Fuller Theological Seminary, Biola University and Rancho Santiago College. She is the author of "C.S. Lewis: Mere Christian" and two other books that have been Gold Medallion finalists. She now lives in Orange, California with her husband John who is a history teacher.
