Product description

Review

"The facts of this passing parade of perfidious knaves, nasty poltroons, incompetent liars and just some unlucky folk who slipped on bygone banana peels make for leisurely reading--and it's surely a story to be continued." --Kirkus Reviews

"A catalog of historical anecdotes in which the historical agents experienced very bad days indeed."
--Library Journal
