Frank W. Abagnale's, alias Frank Williams, Robert Conrad, Frank Adams, and Robert Monjo, was one of the most daring con-men, forgers, imposters, and escape artists in history. In his brief but notorious criminal career, Abagnale donned a pilot's uniform and copiloted a Pan Am jet, masqueraded as the supervising resident of a hospital, practiced law without a license, passed himself off as a college sociology professor, and cashed over $2.5 million in forged checks, all before he was twenty-one. Known by the police of twenty-six foreign countries and all fifty states as "The Skywayman," Abagnale lived a sumptuous life on the lam, until the law caught up with him. Now recognized as the nation's leading authority on financial foul play, Abagnale is a charming rogue whose hilarious, stranger-than-fiction international escapades and ingenious escapes, including one from an airplane, make Catch me if you can an irresistible tale of deceit.… (més)

The conman, the grifter, flimflam man, con artist or just straight up hustler all have a special place in my heart. I am talking about the guys and gals on the road. Not the 419ers or the tech support types, the actual honest to god con artist.

I have always had an interest in con artist and short cons. Being involved in sleight of hand magic it goes with the territory but Frank Abagnale is a magician of the highest level.

Living a rock star lifestyle during the 60s by basically handing over bad cheques. It's a story of a man who wasn't made to be an average Joe and wanted to see the world but didn't have a penny to his name.

So he made money out of nothing. Frank is one of the most sympathetic criminals one could meet in literature. It may seem far fetched and over blown but Frank teaches us that if you have enough confidence and add a little grey matter then the world is your oyster. ( )

Fascinating if one-sided view of a bright young man who stepped into a life of crime. I would be interested in reading/hearing O'Brien's view of the events portrayed by Abagnale in this book. After all, there are (at least) two sides to every story. There doesn't seem to be any such material available. Oh well, it was an entertaining read. Time to give the movie a re-watch. ( )
