Whilst reading this entertaining little book I was often rolling my eyes, or scrunching them shut, or cringing and aghast, or just laughing out loud (as well as chuckling to myself). The foibles of humanity, the greed and hypocrisy of the powerful, and the gullibility of the desperate are all clearly illustrated. Best of all (for the bookish) there is a lengthy bibliography.
