The Ponzi scheme puzzle :a history and analysis of con artists and victims

In this book the author explores con artists' fascinating powers of persuasion and deception, showing how people's attitudes are ambivalent and uncertain toward con artists, perhaps because their behavior is so seemingly honest, because they act like the social leaders with whom they are likely to mingle, or perhaps because their actions are thought to shake up a complacent society.
