Lost the book on vacation and bought another one, it was that good.
Hard to put down.
Better than the movie!!
Great first hand account of an honest look in to the American Mob. Fastest I've ever read a book. If you read this Mr. Pistone, thank you!
Great movie, book so-so
I still feel bad for the guys he ratted on, especially Sonny & Lefty. The movie is actually my favorite movie but I still don't know how he was able to be friends with these people & gain their trust knowing in the end he was going to screw them over & get them killed.
