    The movie was good, but the book was even better. In addition, I recommend reading another of his books, “The Art of the Steal,” in which he talks about some of his exploits, but also about how to protect yourself.

    The ironic thing is that he turned himself into a consultant for the FBI’s anti-fraud division, as well as for large banks and corporations. He’s led an interesting life on both sides of the law.
