內容簡介


身邊有沒有這種人,經常上詐騙集團的當?
還有一種是你覺得他不可能受騙,居然也中了圈套?
別以為受害者都是愚蠢和無知,極有可能他們恰巧是絕望的,或他們當時在感情上受到影響……

信任與受騙,只是一線之隔,詐騙者運用這一條線的差距,玩弄心理遊戲,利用人性弱點,展開騙局,捕捉甕中之鱉。

紐約時報書評讚譽本書The Confidence Game對於黑暗藝術的騙局,精闢分析,抽絲剝繭,大快人心。 

擁有哥倫比亞大學心理學博士學位的作者Maria Konnikova採取新聞報導與第一人稱的敘述,從公共記錄和原始採訪,剖析世界上最成功騙子的範例與技巧,從科學的、戲劇的和心理的角度,逐步帶領讀者進入騙子世界,分享大量豐富多彩的現實生活中的騙子和婦女故事,其手法與叫巧,令人咋舌;作者再運用專業的社會心理學研究,引導讀者從旁觀者,冷靜地洞察,審視自詡為藝術家的騙子和受害者之間的關係,進而從騙局的狀態中撥雲見日,這樣才能想像與學習推敲細節、觀察入微的大偵探福爾摩斯,如此一來,上當受騙的機率應該大大降低。

作者認為,為有將心比心,才能識出破綻,讓自己置身事外,化危機為轉機;同時,也能藉此來操控身邊人,描述「心理戰」,細膩、精彩,難得一見的題材。

"It’s a startling and disconcerting read that should make you think twice every time a friend of a friend offers you the opportunity of a lifetime. . . . If you liked Malcolm Gladwell’s Blink, you’ll love this lucid and revelatory look into our oh-so-susceptible selves.”
—Erik Larson, #1 New York Times bestselling author of Dead Wake and bestselling author of Devil in the White City

From the New York Times bestselling author of Mastermind: How to Think Like Sherlock Holmes, a compelling investigation into the minds, motives, and methods of con artists—and the people who fall for their cons over and over again

While cheats and swindlers may be a dime a dozen, true conmen—the Bernie Madoffs, the Jim Bakkers, the Lance Armstrongs—are elegant, outsized personalities, artists of persuasion and exploiters of trust. How do they do it? Why are they successful? And what keeps us falling for it, over and over again? These are the questions that journalist and psychologist Maria Konnikova tackles in her mesmerizing new book.
 
From multimillion-dollar Ponzi schemes to small-time frauds, Konnikova pulls together a selection of fascinating stories to demonstrate what all cons share in common, drawing on scientific, dramatic, and psychological perspectives. Insightful and gripping, the book brings readers into the world of the con, examining the relationship between artist and victim. The Confidence Game asks not only why we believe con artists, but also examines the very act of believing and how our sense of truth can be manipulated by those around us.
