ONE OF MY ALL-TIME FAVORITE BOOKS
At least 15 years ago after hearing Mr. Abagnale's exploits discussed on the radio, I read this book. I've repeatedly encouraged others to read this audacious autobiography.
Suffice it to say, the long-awaited movie with DiCaprio and Hanks didn't begin to depict Mr. Abagnale's insanely uninhabited early life. It's unlikely the most illustrious writer of fiction could create such hilarious hijinks and unnerving escapades. Mr. Abagnale's many off-the-cuff impersonations and miraculous escapes were astounding, especially for someone too young to vote!
Read the book. You won't be disappointed.
