From burglary to armed robbery and murder, infamous bad guy Frank Cullotta not only did it all, in Cullotta he admits to it - and in graphic detail. This no-holds-barred biography chronicles the life of a career criminal who started out as a thug on the streets of Chicago and became a trusted lieutenant in Tony Spilotro's gang of organized lawbreakers in Las Vegas. Cullotta's was a world of high-profile heists, street muscle, and information - lots of it - about many of the FBI's most wanted. In the end, that information was his ticket out of crime, as he turned government witness and became one of a handful of mob insiders to enter the Witness Protection Program.

I haven't read the print version
The narrator does a good job when speaking in his own voice, but when he tries to impersonate the various mob characters it gets pretty silly. He makes Tony "The Ant" Spilotro sound like a cartoon character. I almost stopped the program the first time I heard him do it. If the content hadn't been so good I might have returned it for a refund.
I love this story as Casino is one of my favorite movies. I know most of the true facts behind the story and this gives yet another in depth perspective. I would have given all five stars but the narrator is quite awful as he tries to use voices for different characters. he makes Tony Spilotro sound like a calamity cowboy or something and it's not consistent throughout his story. It kind of drove me nuts but I liked the book so I put up with it. Great read though!
