Believe it or not, best book I've read in a long time. Forget OJ, the actual story of Riccio's life is an unbelievable roller coaster ride. I found it funny , exciting, and entertaining. This story of a troubled Jersey kid, whose crazy get rich quick schemes and insatiable desire for excitement led him through a Forrest Gump type life is captivating to say the least.This unbelievable, but nonetheless true story would make a great movie.
