Robinson is a very good writer who can explain complex subjects simply and does not talk down to the reader. However, why the second half of the book has to mirror the first half is a complete mystery. Also unfortunately, some of the advice is now outdated. However, senior citizens or caretakers of seniors should at least read Part 1.

Excellent book highlighting especially in the US environment, but quite applicable worldwide, the various ways we can be scammed by fraudsters in the world today. It shares many examples of popular scams and ends with 39 steps that all of us can take to minimize our chances I being conned.
I highly recommend this, especially for those working in the financial industry. Actually, as long as you are human, I encourage reading this for all of us can be targets some time in our lives.
