So far i'm half way via reading it but if this story is true, it's just a pity the man dealt in what is regarded as " illicit material" to make his fortune.
But the story tells another story just the same, we all pay massive amounts of money to local and national Governments and wander why and how it is being spent but this so-called criminal done a massive amount of "goodwill?!" with the money he raked in.
But yes, there is the other side of the story, the misery caused by Drugs in every day life, If he sold the drug to Pharmaceutical companies, would he still have made his fortune or would the Columbian "Government" creamed off most of it with massive tax demands??

Interesting and subjective account of Pablo Escobar's personal and business life from the perspective of his brother, Roberto, detailing some facts regarding the Kingpin's rise to prominence in the worlds of Crime and Politics and his demise at the hands of the US D.E.A., C.I.A and various other US Government agencies determined to halt his increasing wealth ,power and influence.

It is a well written book. It would have been 5 stars if only the story is not so 'wrong'. A drug trafficker's bigger brother thinks 'he did nothing wrong' and yet pursued by the government. Who is he kidding? Through out the book, Roberts seems to think that selling drug is ok. He were the Robin Hood of Columbia. I bet hitler thinks he is doing the good so are isis etc...

A Great and interesting story, told from the inside, of one of the worlds biggest and most successful criminals.

Well worth a read if you're interested in the life and times of Pablo Escobar
