    A 'must read'

    I have read this book seven times. I bought four different copies. Made all my friends read it, and they love it as well. John H. Davis goes into detail without loosing the interest of the reader. Even for those who never read.

    A reviewer

    A great read for anyone interested in the Gambino crime family or the mafia for that matter. Quite possibly the best mafia book I have ever read.

    good read

    This is a very informative and easily read book. Even if you are not very interested in organized crime you will still probably like this book.

    Good book with misleading title

    This book is accurate and interesting. It shows a brief history of the roots of the American Mafia, or Cosa Nostra, and then talks extensively about John Gotti. The book would be better titled John Gotti and the Gambino Family. It would be interesting to find a book that would get deep into the earlier days of the Castellamarese War and Albert Anastasia's days as boss. But this is still a good book for hardcore Mafia readers like myself. Many myths are destroyed here, such as those shown in the movies The Godfather and Gotti.
