Publisher's Summary

During the mid-1980s, Howard Marks had 43 aliases, 89 phone lines, and owned 25 companies throughout the world. Whether bars, recording studios, or offshore banks, all were money-laundering vehicles serving his core activity: dope dealing.

Marks began to deal small amounts of hashish while doing a postgraduate philosophy course at Oxford, and soon he was moving much larger quantities into Europe and into America. The academic life began to lose its allure. At the height of his career, he was smuggling consignments of up to 50 tons from Pakistan and Thailand to America and Canada and had contact with organisations as diverse as MI6, the CIA, the IRA, and the Mafia. Numerous newspaper profiles, books, and television documentaries have been devoted to Howard Mark's life. Touched with humour, charm, and candour, Mr Nice is his own extraordinary story.

    "Good story but hard to follow"

    This was recommended to me and although I enjoyed the story, I found it hard to follow the accent and at times all the characters.

    "Mr Nice."

    Mr Nice is a great book, narrated by the man himself, "Mr Howard Marks", made for an enjoyable experience. His biography was an insight to the early years of dope smuggling, Mr Marks being the formost and probably the greatest influance on the early years of "Dope" importation made for an exciting yet prolific insight into the "Dope" deals of the early days. Although driven by money "Mr Nice" also was about the love of the drug, the buzz of the deals, and the livestlyle too which he and his family soon became accustomed. Howard Marks is too many an iconic figure, and to have the man himself narrating was a nice touch, though I must say his laid back voice nearly had me nodding off on occasion. All told this book is a must read for "Dope" smokers, medicinal or otherwise!! 9/10.
