"... chronicles country's long and colorful history of cons and corruption. ... The deals seemed too good to be true, and they were. ... Richard Estep's "Grifters, Frauds and Crooks: True Stories of American Corruption" lays it all out. It's a history of American rogues dedicated to life, larceny, and the pursuit of happiness -- well, their own, anyway. ... the book offers a wide array of lowlifes." - New York Daily News
