Mafia Books.
 
For ppl into Mafia books, i highly recommend reading

"Gomorrah - Italy's other Mafia".

this is an absolute dope book, basically its a investigative report on the Gomorrah. All the content in it is true. Apparently the Author is now hunted down by the Gomorrah, he got until Christmas to live.

You can understand why because the book goes into incredible detail over every aspect of the organisation. Even to the nicknames of each member.

sounds like good read. i've read many american mafia books, but never any trule Italian ones. They are much more ruthless too....I'll check it out.

Have you ever read the Last Testament of Lucky Luciano? Good read.

HANZO 10-27-2008 03:39 PM

nah i havent come across it.

cause i got loads of Sicilian friends im directed more towards the Cosa Nostra based stuff.

The Gomorrah is pretty ruthless, theres even a movie about the Camorra mafia network which jus came out.

The Valachi Papers is a good mafia book.

The dude was a rat and the book is an account of his life in the mafia. Good read.

i read all those too. mafia dynasty is another great one. check for that if you havent already

Olive Oil Goombah 01-06-2009 02:17 PM

wiseguy is great....i read that when i was 15 in one day. couldnt put it down.

Yea I've always wanted to read Mafia Dynasty.

Gotti: Rise and Fall gets boring towards the end.

Underboss is good.

The Last Testament of Lucky Luciano is great.

Casino is good.

Godfather of Las Vegas is good.

Rise and Fall of the Cleveland Mafia is good.

To Kill The Irishman is good.

Mob Nemesis is good.

Vengeance is Mine i only read part of.

Donnie Brasco is a great book, better than the movie.

Olive Oil Goombah 01-06-2009 07:18 PM

Back in the day, it was NY, CHI, PHI and CLE.....Danny Greene ended all that. See To Kill The Irishman.

casino is the shit. i love that book. way cooler than the movie... more real.

DR. NICK RIVIERA 01-08-2009 06:10 PM

I have one of books the same author of Godfather wrote, I just don't know if I should read it haha

Olive Oil Goombah 01-08-2009 09:01 PM

Probably the Last Don, which i've read, or the Sicilian.

Last Don wasn't bad.

The Hound 02-13-2009 12:03 AM

itm ight be generic, but the donnie brasco book is fucking excellent ... goes into a lot more detail than the movie and the movie is pretty factualy incorrect for the most part and the book draws you in more than the movie because it's personalised from joseph pistone's point of view which makes all the more better

i had a massive encylocpedia of the mafia i stole from school which was great ... pretty sure it was just called the mafia encyclopedia

Olive Oil Goombah 04-22-2009 02:27 PM

The Donnie Brasco book was great. Anthony Mirra was never mentioned in the movie, but he was a great part of the book.
