    If you want to know the truth about Henry Hill

    And his life in the WPP then forget about this book and purchase the book his kids wrote: 'On The Run: A Mafia Childhood.' This book will makes gangsters and goodfellas look like a cinderella story. Henry's kids hold no punches back against their dad and give you the real Henry Hill, which is nothing more than a low class, white trash, drug addict drunk. When your own kids hate your guts there is something seriously wrong. I guess Henry was too ashamed to tell his readers how he used to have coke and orgy parties in front of is 8 and 6 year old children, or when he could no longer sniff heroin because he burnt out all the cells in his nose he resorted to shooting it up (something he denies doing in the book) or how he became a near homeless street junkie in Hollywood. Trust me, get the book the kids wrote. This book is good for nothing more than hearing Henry tell a few funny stories and filling in some information that was left out of wiseguy and goodfellas.
