Fooled You! Fakes and Hoaxes through the Years
Author: Pascoe Elaine
Publisher: Henry Holt
Year Reviewed:: 2006
Review: Pascoe presents well-researched chapters on eleven notable infamous hoaxes--from the 1800s to the present--exploring the stories behind them and pondering why people were so easily fooled. These tantalizing accounts hold tremendous appeal and are as much about the craftiness of perpetrators as about the gullibility of believers.
