    Anthony "Gaspipe" Casso, the boss of New York's Lucchese crime family, was a Mafia superstar, responsible for more than 50 murders. Currently serving 13 life sentences at a federal prison in Colorado, Casso has given journalist and New York Times best-selling author Philip Carlo the most intimate, personal look into the world of La Cosa Nostra ever seen.

  • Freakonomics: Revised Edition

    • UNABRIDGED (6 hrs and 55 mins)

    Story

    Steven D. Levitt is not a typical economist. He is a much-heralded scholar who studies the riddles of everyday life, from cheating and crime to sports and child-rearing, and whose conclusions turn the conventional wisdom on its head. Thus the new field of study contained in this audiobook: Freakonomics. Levitt and co-author Stephen J. Dubner show that economics is, at root, the study of incentives: how people get what they want, or need, especially when other people want or need the same thing.

    Overall

    I am a big Malcolm Gladwell fan and he mentioned in an interview that he liked this series. I bought it and thoroughly enjoyed it!

    Story

    The story of Demetrius “Big Meech” Flenory and his legendary street crew, the Black Mafia Family (BMF), is the tale of a modern-day don who aspired to be something more: a credible name in hip-hop. It is a tale built on the seduction of vast sums of money, a seduction that pulled in hip-hop stars but that also had a darker side.

    Arjun says: "The Narration is Amazing!"
    "I enjoyed the book"
    Overall

    This was a good book. Although the narrator messed up a word or two,I think that he did a wonderful job. I was aware of this crew and I know that very few people attain the level of success that they had. It is an intricate crew< which means that the story is intricate. The narrator is the perfect at explaining the story from a real perspective A++.

  • Room Full of Mirrors: A Biography of Jimi Hendrix

    For many, the name Jimi Hendrix conjures up a larger-than-life image of the man who set fire to guitars, women's hearts, and the status quo. In this groundbreaking account, music journalist Charles R. Cross takes a far deeper look. Beyond Hendrix's legendary onstage and offstage magnetism, and his excessive lifestyle, was a man who struggled to accept his role as an idol and privately craved the kind of normal family life he never had.

    J. Wood says: "Hendrix-Man and Myth"
    "Bravo!!!!! Must buy"
    Overall

    This author has much to be proud of. He was objective and in depth in his story telling.As a black man, I am guilty of dismissing Hendrix as being "not black enough" because he played rock and not the more popular African American genres of music. I was in error! Hendrix was a wonderful spirit! Thank You to the parties that contributed to this book. I listened to the entire book in a week. I was moved. A+++++++.
