it doesn't teach u anything on how to pickpocket. I thought it did because it said "He explains the stealth and showmanship of a wide array of wallet snatchers. He explores the powerful subliminal emotions touched by each act of pocket thievery". Its not true, its just a history about it, whats the point of that. I don't like it at all.
