    Better than “American Gods”?!? Seriously!

  2. The one mark you cannot beat….is the mark inside.
    Nice Burroughs reference.

    Just an observation but the pricing at Amazon these days for Kindle Editions is screwed (and I’m being polite!).

    How they think charging more for a Kindle version makes sense is beyond me.

    I’d rather buy the dead tree version or worse download it for free somewhere.

    Downloaded to kindle, can’t wait to read this.  I love these kind of stories.

      Sorry to be such a pest, but can you give me a link to the kindle version; I can’t see it on the amazon website. Is it elsewhere?

    “the con-artists who ruled America”

    Why the past tense? Con artists haven’t stopped running the show since the early 20th century.

    I’m looking forward to this book. Thanks for the heads up.

  6. I don’t know that I need to read TWO books about the long con, and David Maurer’s classic /The Big Con/ was awfully thorough and awfully good. Have you read both, and can you compare them?
