Overview

"The Sopranos just might be the greatest work of American popular culture of the last quarter century." — New York Times

"Kick-ass magnificent." — Los Angeles Times

"The best drama on television. It's why you get HBO, it's why you get cable, it's why you get a television." — Chicago Sun Times

Perhaps no show in the history of television has had such a revolutionary impact on American television and popular culture than HBO's The Sopranos. In just three 13-week seasons, the hard-hitting, controversial television series about a New Jersey Mafia boss and his family has won legions of fans and earned jaw-dropping praise from the critics. Much of the show's success can be attributed to its brilliant writers. In every episode, the writers articulate a coherent philosophy of life as it is lived by the characters of the show. Loosely organized according to the principles found in the Tao Te Ching, the ancient text at the root of the Chinese philosophy called Taoism, The Tao of Bada Bing! Words of Wisdom from The Sopranos features memorable quotations from all four seasons of the Sopranos. Officially Licensed and Authorized by HBO.
