Description - Way Of The Wiseguy by Joe Pistone
New in paperback with a 60-minute audio CD featuring dramatic FBI surveillance from the Donnie Brasco operation which was used in court to put 120 Mafia members in jail, heres the first nonfiction work from Joe Pistone since his New York Times #1 bestseller and hit movie, Donnie Brasco. Perhaps no man alive knows the lifestyle of wiseguys better than Pistone does, having spent six years infiltrating the Mafia as an undercover FBI agent. Now, years later, Pistone reassesses the underworld, and the surveillance audio provides additional insight. Often poignant, and in startling detail, THE WAY OF THE WISEGUY gives readers a first-hand look at the psychology and customs of the wiseguy. The book features 34 chapters that reveal key principles of wiseguy life, including How Wiseguys Carry Out a Hit, How Wiseguys Get Straightened Out, and A Typical Day in the Life of a Wiseguy. Pistones spellbinding stories provide a first-hand look at this lawless realm of badguys, which is often uncannily relevant to the workings of legitimate big business and everyday social discourse.
