I picked up this book because I was hopeful it was another work like Mr Bergreen's fine book on Magellan Capone was a thorough and well written book and then some Magellan could have taken two laps around the globe by the time I got to the end of this tome But after a while I refused to say uncle and pushed on to the end Everything you'd ever want to know about Al Capone from his jail cell conversations to the color of his underwear is somewhere in the 619 pages of this book I think a good editor could have pared 100 pages and still left the author's intent and voice intact But it's a very good piece of writing as it is

Capone The Man and the EraThe bestselling author of James Agee and As Thousands Cheer The Life of Irving Berlin now prese. • Man this book took me a long time to read That was my first reaction after finishing it but then I thought about the book itself I have to say that I’m really happy I took the time to read the whole thing Capone has been so idolized lionized crucified or canonized by so many different people it’s really difficult to have any idea who the real Capone is I believe that if any book or other type of media is going to get it right it’s this book Everyone says “Well what if the info in this book is untrue” I guess that’s possible but the info that’s listed as fact in this book is only done so if it is backed up by obtainable records in various agencies that keep them Also the things listed as opinion or ‘eye witness’ accounts are listed as such They are not portrayed as fact Overall this book was a great experience and a fascinating window into the life and times of arguably the most famous man of his era
