Conning Harvard: Adam Wheeler, the Con Artist Who Faked His Way into the Ivy League by Julie Zauzmer and Xi Yu (

Adam Wheeler used modern technology, lies and cheating to garner a much coveted place at Harvard University. This book details exactly how, Wheeler forged documents, plagiarized and faked his way through college and scholarship deals.


The authors have fully investigated, Wheelers deceptions and put the ordeal in an easy to read format. This book is well crafted and well written. A must read.
