Confident Women: Swindlers, Grifters, and Shapeshifters of the Feminine Persuasion
A thorough recounting of history's female con artists and the scams they pulled off. Elizabeth Holmes has been making headlines lately, and certainly gets an honorable mention in this book, but author Tori Telfer starts way back in the 1700s to tell the stories of some of the most ambitious grifts ever attempted by women. What do these stories reveal about the connection between a certain feminine persuasion and the ability to swindle and trick folks out of their money? If you appreciate a good con job, and appreciate it all the more for the fact that a woman did it, then this is the book for you.(This book may contain a sharpie mark on the top or bottom edge and may show mild signs of shelfwear.)
