terrible reader

perhaps the narrator should learn how to pronounce the names of the people in the book. also, you don't need to imitate a gangster's voice pathology to narrate a gangster's story.

kudos to author!!

This is the history of the Dapper Don himself John Gotti and his rise to the top from nothing. John was a poor labors son who longed for the good life and found a way to reach out and take the opportunity to build a legacy that outshines most other mobsters of the era. There were no bridges that John would not cross or burn to get the fame and respect he desired. The author has put together a great view into the life and times that drove the choices of America's development. I enjoy reading about that era and the life of the people and how things happened. This is a great story of the development of that time. The history of American culture is a great resource and Daniel Brand has done a great job of putting together this story about one of the most prolific players in the early mafia game. If you are interested in the life of a gangster this is a great place to start. I would recommend everyone check this one out.

BEST AUDIO BOOK

However, I wish the author had done a better job editing the book. While the content is extremely interesting, the multiple grammar errors distracted me. For example, there are tons of run-on sentences. Even so, I think those interested in John Gotti will enjoy the book.

Like this book.

It truly is a fascinating story.The author focuses more on connecting Gotti’s history to the mafia rather than simply writing his life story. Something the mafia fans will appreciate.
