Too perfect to be real. This is a book that made laught and made me cry. Everybody need to know this, and I guarantee: the movie sucks compared to the book. You need to check this story, you will be thankful.

"Catch Me If You Can" follows the life of Frank W. Abignale - one of the greatest con men of all time who single handedly lived his life on fradulant checks and scams that just leave you thinking how amazing he was.

He blames his short life of crime on a perpetual case of spring fever-where ample loads of cash are needed to fuel this …

CATCH ME IF YOU CAN is the autobiography of master con man, Frank Abagnale. By the time he was 20, he had traveled all over the world; stolen millions of dollars; passed himself off as a Pan Am pilot, a pediatrician, a lawyer, and a sociology professor. Abagnale invented modern fraud and now he works at defunking it.This book was an excellent read. It was quick, entertaining, informative, and slightly fascinating. The author does seem like a chauvinistic pig at the beginning of the book, but keep …
