Smuggling an estimated 80% of the total cocaine being illegally brought into the United States of America at the peak of his career, Pablo Escobar was one of the most notorious Colombian drug lords that mankind has ever known. Known as the King of Cocaine, his net worth was estimated as US $30 billion in the early 1990s. Along with being at the helm of the Medellin Cartel, Escobar would sponsor soccer clubs and charity projects and was hugely popular among the poor people.

Even 20 years after his death, there are people who still visit his grave every year. What kind of a childhood did Pablo Escobar have? How did he enter the drug business? How did he manage to reach the top of the drug empire? Was he ever arrested? How was he killed? What about his family? Where are they now? You will find the answers to these questions and many more as you continue listening to this book.
