Cons, Fools and Friends is about photojournalist, Peter Anderson's exploits: his journeys, misadventures, escapades and the array of extraordinary people he encounters throughout the world. Anderson takes his readers on his travels through Russia where he drinks with the Mafia; he also dines with a headhunter in Borneo, has dinner with a Senator in Morocco and is mugged in New York. He takes us on some of his favourite journeys through Tuscany, the Karakoram Highway, up the Rajang river in Borneo, on a safari in Kenya, through South America and New Zealand. Written in a humorous way, this book also gives the readers little gems of information that would serve would-be travellers well.
