Brimming with astonishing, little-known, and elaborate practical jokes and money-making schemes, Hoaxes and Scares is the last word on notorious put-ons throughout history. In a handy A-to-Z format, it documents such deceptions as John Quincy Adams's nude press conference, Clifford Irving's "autobiography" of Howard Hughes, Hitler's diaries, and hundreds more.
