I enjoy reading these books and have read many accounts regarding the American Mafia.

For anyone with initial interest, this is a good book. Well known stories with accurate information.

If you have a little more knowledge, I would recommend you avoid this and maybe look at Cosa Nostra or The Five Families, both of which I think are the best books available reading the history of the American Mafia.

Interesting insight into the mafia world. Don't know how these people could get up in the morning. Being killed seems to be a normal way of life. Also find it strange how easily people could be "lured " to places then shot? You would think that they would have guessed something was up!!!!

This is a whistle stop tour of some of the famous Mafia men who turned informant for the authorities. The chapters are brief and provide basic information. The writing us similar to that of as tabloid reporter.

Potted histories of all the main names. If you are new to this subject and want to scan read each wiseguys biography to see whom you would like to read a more thorough treatise on then its ok. Ditto 30 mins to kill on the train. But theres no new information and the more experienced mafia reader will pick out various mistakes and confusions.
