Critic reviews

"While this book is at turns astonishing and frightening, it is peppered with great wit and the reader will occasionally find it hard to stop themselves from laughing out loud." (Misha Glenny)

Decent but a bit shallow<br />

I understand he put himself in harms way but it's a very shallow book. Scant on depth and dips, just dips, into separate scams. Would have been better for him to get more examples.

A travellers handbook

For those people who travel regularly this book is ideal. An in depth look into scams that target tourist specifically and how much money can be stolen or scammed from you. CW is a man who purposely gets into the situations to find out more about them and interview them to get the reasons to why it is done, who organises it and how it’s works. Despite getting guns drawn on him multiple times he shows you how to best avoid these scams which could take your life and what to look out for to avoid them. Great book and had me not wanting to stop listening. Highly recommend for a great listen!
