I was looking forward to reading this once I first saw it in the store. Unfortunately, the book was choked with long-winded, rambling anecdotes that had nothing to do with the main topic. After getting about halfway through it, I couldn't take anymore. I left it in the lobby of my apt. It leaves no doubt in my mind that the reviewers have a 'one hand washes the other' objective.

Breslin knows how to tell a story, and is never better than recounting one about his beloved New York. This tale of mobsters and crooked cops is vintage Breslin, vintage New York. The book bogs down a little when Breslin relies on court transcripts; his writing is much better than real life.

This is a good read for anyone that likes organized crime, Jimmy Breslin couldn't have done a better job.

I like the intertwining of old and new. I thought Breslin did a good job of keeping it interesting.

I read pretty much every book on organized crime I possibly can and this is one of my favorite, hands down. Not many people know the subject better or have covered it longer than Breslin. A must read for any mafia buff. The audio book is great too!

I purchased this book during the big sale in January. An interesting look at the Mafia from a man who has been able to get inside and ask questions. Breslin is a great storyteller. This book is interesting, a very easy read, and easily consumed in a day.
