    Excellent Book!

    The story of Nicky 'the Crow' Caramandi from his days as a small time con man on the streets of South Philadelphia to his days as a 'made' member of the Bruno/Scarfo mob. A must for any Philadelphia mob enthusiast. Behind the scenes information on all the South Philly mob hits, including Angelo Bruno and Philip 'Chicken man' Testa. Also, includes information on the extortion scandal involving Philadelphia City councilman, Lelong Beloff, and his ties to the mob. Excellent Book!!

    Repetitive Read

    In George Anastasia's book Blood and Honor, he tells a story of life with the Scarfo Mob. Anastasia's main character Nick Caramandi tells the tale of before he was a made member, how he had to murder various people to become a member, and how he fell from the safety of the "family". The trials and tribulations of the mob's felonious lifestyle are quite interesting. You learn about how the workings of the mob such as how the power hierarchy is corrupt, about counterfeiting, made members, and contracts to kill. This book is very repetitive while talking about the actions of the mob. You can get the gist of the whole book in the first few chapters so after that, it's kind of a boring read. If you're not really into the mob, then I would not recommend this book.
