Tulip fever in Holland, the South Sea Company in the UK, the construction of the Panama Canal - scams that affected the economies of entire countries and thousands of people, as well as old-world tricks of charlatan doctors and harmless and ridiculous newspaper ducks are discussed in the first part of the book. Also in the book we are talking about people whose sophisticated mind combined with a thirst for profit and natural artistry pushed the most unthinkable enterprises. These are "hunters to brave calculations", romance - not so much scams as adventurers - and "business people", children of our pragmatic age.
This book, written in a lively and vibrant language, will be useful to specialists and is interesting to a wide range of readers.
