Review

From page 1 this story had visions of Ray Liotta in Goodfellas and James Gandolfini from The Sopranos popping into my head. The language is not for the faint of heart and the stories will have you laughing one minute and cringing the next. The book is written in an autobiographical style but the stories are actually fiction. Fiction or not you are drawn into "Trouble" Ventura's mafia upbringing and adventures through his childhood into adulthood. A fun easy way to spend a few hours reading.
