    This isn't "just another mob story." It's a suspenseful, exciting, and entertaining account of one of the greatest scams to hit Las Vegas...a scam that has never been exposed before, and one that changed history and gambling laws across America forever! Through the eyes of the author, who grew up in that world, and the words of his Godfather, an underboss who told his story before he died, The Boss Always Sits in the Back details the demise of the mobsters who ran northern New Jersey.

    Story
    Would you consider the audio edition of The Boss Always Sits in the Back to be better than the print version?

    Yes. The author paints a clear picture of New Jersey Italians. I don't think anyone else could describe or deliver the correct tone of the story than Jon. I am surprised that the audio book did not include the epilogue.


    What other book might you compare The Boss Always Sits in the Back to and why?

    This was my first book of this style, so I have nothing else to compare it to.


    What does Jon D'Amore bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    A viable Italian/Jersey tone to the story. This is a story about the Mob in Jersey. I could not picture Patrick Stewart performing this and be credible.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    At the end, reading the epilogue (that AUDIBLE.COM left out), I was moved by the death of Jerry, Jon's cousin. Many times throughout the book I laughed at the situations Jon got himself into...many I cannot repeat here in this review.


    Any additional comments?

    My cousin Ray told me about this book. I had the wonderful opportunity to meet Jon and hear him read the first chapter. I have listened to many books read by various individuals. It is in my opinion that a story read by the author is much better than by any actor. The author knows what he wants the reader to take from the story. Jon gave me a glimpse into the world of the Mob that only he could convey.
