This was a fantastic book. Narration was OK but I did get a bit lost at a few points with all the different characters. Still well worth a listen

Brilliant

The best & most comprehensive book I have listened to on John Gotti. This book has been extremely well researched & is very well narrated. This is a must for any fans of this genre...

Felt like I was listening to court transcript.

I'm a big fan of mafia books but felt this one read like a court transcript.

Mediocre performance punctuates mediocre writing

It’s a middling story of John Gotti that skips over important events like Sparks Steakhouse but gives attention to Victoria Gotti’s career as a celebrity writer. Disappointing

The mainstream story, well fleshed out & narrated

I think this was one of the earlier books on this. It is well put together, paced and narrated. Plenty of it is already familiar to the generic mob stories fan.

150 years from now, They are gonna wish it’s America La Costra Norstra, 150 from Now, They’re gonna miss John Gotti …..
