President Street Boys

Edition: Paperback
Price: £10.49

5.0 out of 5 stars Great new magazine, 1 Oct. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: President Street Boys (Paperback)
Great new magazine, rebranded was the old Mob Candy magazine. This one is so much better than the old incarnation. Loads of mob stories, boxing, cigars and some pretty looking ladies as well. What more could you want? I would recommend even if you have only the smallest of interest in the U.S mafia. Excellent!

5.0 out of 5 stars Great "Inside" look at the Gallo brothers and their "Crew" ..., 30 July 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Great "Inside" look at the Gallo brothers and their "Crew" The author grew up with these people, and his father Ricky was very close to Larry Gallo. Don't expect a story of "Crazy Joe" this is more about the Gallo "Crew". If you are interested in the Mafia (like I am and especially The Gallo's) then this book is a must....great stories on some well known mobster's and some not so well known one's. I for one look forward to Frank's next book and the next stage of his amazing life.

5.0 out of 5 stars A must read for any boxing fan., 31 Aug. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Absolutely FANTATIC book. So many great stories. Unfortunately so many sad stories as well. If you love boxing and only buy one book this year, make it this one. I bought another copy and gave it to my son as this book is worth keeping. A great, great read!


Mi Vida Loca: The Crazy and Unbelievable Life of Johnny Tapia
Mi Vida Loca: The Crazy and Unbelievable Life of Johnny Tapia
by Johnny Tapia
Edition: Hardcover

4.0 out of 5 stars Good Interesting read, 24 July 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The boxing side of Johnny's life is really only "Touched On" in this book. This is more a life story and what a story it is. drugs, violence and more drugs. What comes out of the book is that despite everything Johnny went through he was nice, decent person. I hope he is now finally reunited and at peace with the mother he missed so much. The only downside to this book is the lack of photos/picture, I like to be able see the persons I'm reading about, other than that a good read. R.I.P Johnny a champion both in and out of the ring

Lion in the Basement Growing up in the Gallo Crime Family
by Frank Dimatteo Sr
Edition: Paperback
Price: £4.47

5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant book, 20 Dec. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
One of the very best books on the "Mob" I have read and that's over 100. Frank takes you back in time to when the Gallo family ran downtown Brooklyn. This book takes you right into the Gallo family with a great list of characters who will make you smile, then cry at some of the activities these guys got up to. A fantastic chapter on Armando "The Dwarf" Illano, plus some rare photos, unseen before of the Gallo family and members. Frank tells you exactly what it was like to "Run" with these guys. If you only buy one book on the "Mob" this coming year "Make Sure It's This ONE! Once started very hard to put down.

5.0 out of 5 stars A MUST Read on the Scarfo years, 29 Dec. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This Is the definitive book on the Scarfo years. "Mafia Prince" is the story of how the most violent crime family of all came to power and In the end Imploded, as "Little Nicky" began to trust no one, not even his most loyal "Capos". The story as told by Phillip "Crazy Phil" Leonetti starts from when Phil's father abandoned him and his uncle Nicky takes him under his wing, teaching him from that moment on about "Our Life". A must read book with treachery, and bodies every where. Before the end Phil has seen his uncle for what he really is and as he puts it "Several times in the mid 80s I came very close to killing my uncle" "What honour Is there In killing our most loyal captain, killing two men In front of their mothers and my uncle telling me to slit his wifes throat"

Phillip has admitted to killings and describes them in the book. Should a man sentenced to 40+ years in prison be allowed to walk the streets with a new I.D.? Read the book and see what you think. You won't be disapointed I have over 100 books on the U.S. "Mafia" and this one rates In the top 3. Buy it you won't be able to stop reading once you start. A page turner from the first page...

Also If you are Interested In "Mob" stories take a look at mobcandy.com. Let Frankie know If you visited after reading this review on Amazon europe.

The Godfather's Daughter: An Unlikely Story of Love, Healing, and Redemption

4.0 out of 5 stars Not the book I thought it was going to be BUT a GOOD read, 15 Oct. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
A nice balance between the daughters story and her fathers story. An enjoyable read about a daughter growing up with a father who was the most powerful "Godfather" of his time.
From the way Rita was decieved by her family until the time she finds the "Truth" about her dad, the shock of finding out about her fathers other family, and her battles with her own personel life. It's more a story about a youg girl/woman and the difficult relationship with her dad as she grows, more than a book about the "Mafia"! I enjoyed it, and hope everything in the last chapter one day happens to us all!

4.0 out of 5 stars Easy read, 20 Dec. 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
A nice easy read. As with the official story the auther can't come up with what really happened to Abe Reles, but at the end of the book does put some interesting stories forword. One thing is for sure after reading this the conclusion is "Reles never went out of the window because he wanted too" Worth a read if you are interested in "Murder Inc"

5.0 out of 5 stars I would recommend this. BUY IT!!!!, 30 Aug. 2011
Book is 150 pages and if you have an interest in "The Mob" you would wish it had 150 more it's that GOOD!! Written by Frankie DiMatteo who by his own addmission has met and mixed with some of these he's written about, in this book. Has chapters on the usual mobsters Al Capone,John Gotti,Ben Siegel,etc but also some interesting chapters on the likes of Paul Vario,Dominick Napolitano,Roy Demeo. 22 chapters on 22 different Mobsters including a few who don't get to much print. This was one book that once started is very hard to put down. Frankie's knowledge on the subject is second to none being born into the life. If you buy this book and enjoy it visit mobcandymag.com and buy one of their excellant "Mob Candy" magazines,also written and edited by Mr DiMatteo. If you visit mobcandy.com tell Frankie you came after reading my reveiw on Amazon u.k.
