5.0 out of 5 stars Hoaxing is good, 5 Jan 2006

This review is from: The Museum of Hoaxes: The World's Greatest Hoaxes (Paperback)
This is a chronological archive of hoaxes from the last few centuries. it's a fascinating insight into the subject, and seems to cover all the interesting stuff. The rabbit babies part was nasty though.
The only hoax book you'll ever need- is linked to the museum of hoaxes website, which contains even more tales of gullibility.

4.0 out of 5 stars Interesting, but "Hippo Eats Dwarf" is better, 13 Mar 2010

This review is from: The Museum of Hoaxes: The World's Greatest Hoaxes (Paperback)
This is an interesting overview of hoaxes down the ages though the breadth of the subject and the way it is tackled means that it is necessarily a bit sketchy and uneven. Some famous and major hoaxes get a rather cursory account that doesn't always do them justice, and it has to be said that some rather uninteresting ones seem to get more than they warrant. However it is a book worth reading if you are interested in the subject but don't know much about it, and references to the author's "Museum of Hoaxes" website are helpfully provided.
Personally, while I enjoyed them both, I found Boese's subsequent book on Internet hoaxes "Hippo Eats Dwarf" more informative and satisfying.
