I'm so happy Audible offers a "great listen every time guarantee" and that I can get my book credit refunded for The Confidence Game. What a disappointment! I was expecting something useful and an at least some original ideas. Instead I got a rehash of Cialdini's work, and a bunch of vignettes about people falling for cons. They weren't at all helpful because she picked the most extreme examples that had no relevance to me (eg that idiot Professor that got fired from CH for drug smuggling for his internet 'girlfriend', people getting sucked into cults, and desperate people getting tricked by fortune tellers into giving them either the equity in their homes or their life savings). It was a book that seemed to enjoy pointing out the obvious. I'm surprised I kept going with it as long as I did (probably almost 3/4) because I kept expecting her to actually get to something useful. Sadly that never happened. This book is similar to about 15 dozen others that say roughly the same thing - and they do a better job with less crazy examples. Not worth money or time.

As much as this was a seriously interesting book, they should have hired a narrator.
