    When acclaimed Washington Post writer Wil Haygood had an early hunch that Obama would win the 2008 election, he thought he'd highlight the singular moment by exploring the life of someone who had come of age when segregation was so embedded in the culture as to make the very thought of a black president inconceivable. He struck gold when he tracked down Eugene Allen, a butler who had served eight presidents, from Harry Truman to Ronald Reagan. Forest Whitaker narrates the story of this remarkable man who, while serving tea and supervising buffets, was also a witness to history.

    Would you try another book from Wil Haygood and/or the narrators?

    This is just a commercial for the movie. Nothing to this audiobook. Don't waste your money!


    Would you ever listen to anything by Wil Haygood again?

    NO!


    Would you be willing to try another one of the narrators’s performances?

    NO!


    You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    Yeah, I will like the movie, but not this commercial.

    This is the true-crime bestseller that was the basis for Martin Scorsese’s film masterpiece GoodFellas, which brought to life the violence, the excess, the families, the wives and girlfriends, the drugs, the payoffs, the paybacks, the jail time, and the Feds... with Henry Hill’s crackling narration drawn straight out of Wiseguy and overseeing all the unforgettable action.

    Read it and experience the secret life inside the mob - from one who’s lived it. Now with an introduction by Martin Scorcese.

    I'd read a bad review and was skeptical about the book. Having listened, it gave more detail and seemed more accurate than the movie was, although it's still my #1 gangster movie!
