Don't waste your time, it's free but useless and boring
on 26 August 2014
i have a sort of fascination for the topic yet i couldn't read this book. First of all it's got quite a lot of typos, then it is written for a very specific public in mind: people who know EVERYTHING already about the key events/figures/dates of the Mafia and you really want to read about the small tiny details you didnt already know then this book is for you otherwise you will soon get bored. There is NO generalities or even "stories" only a long and seemingly random list of obscure names and events that we are told make the history of the mafia. There is NO chronological order, NO timeline... and NO clue what we are supposed to get out of this book. Don't waste your time, pay for a better book.
