For almost 15 years Janae has been on a search to kw what is real and what is illusion. She wrote this mind-stretching book out of her personal experiences. Surrounded by con artists, sociopaths and predators as a child, she had many up-close encounters with people who saw conning as a natural part of life. Part One of the book gives an overview of the subject and presents a lens for viewing deviant people. Part Two looks at the places where these folks hide, and shows you how to spot them. Part Three looks at what makes people become con artists, why you might attract them in your life, and how to protect yourself from them. In this part Janae also shares stories about her personal encounters with con artists, sociopaths and predators. It closes with Janae's summary of what she learned from her experiences and presents a how-to framework for breaking free that will inspire you!
