The world's most sought-after con man wrote $2.5 million in bad checks, practiced law without a license, practiced medicine with no medical training, and co-piloted a Pan Am jet with a fake license. Slated for production at DreamWorks Entertainment, and now updated with a new Afterworld, "Catch Me If You Can" contains all of the elements of the most wildly imaginative fiction, except that Abagnale's exploits actually happened.

Before I went to the movie by the same name, I saw a 48 hours episode on this case. It really intrigued me. This young conman was able to dupe so many people, and elude the law. I bought my copy from work and read it really quickly. I really liked this book. I just ate it up in one sitting. It is funny and most unbelievable story you will hear. I am not sure how much of it is real as Frank is a great conman but as a story it is great! (Side note: I enjoyed the movie as well).

The first-person memoir that led to the hit DiCaprio and Tom Hanks film, full of splashy tales, exploits and escapades - Abagnale passes tens of thousands of dollars in counterfeit checks, impersonates airline pilots and other professionals (doctor, lawyer, college professor), commits crimes across the Western world. He admits at the outset the amount of his career stemmed from intellectual challenge without consideration for right and wrong, and the desire to line his pockets with corporate cash and his bed with bevies of women. One wild ride!
