Underboss : Sammy the Bull Gravano's story of life in the Mafia by Peter Maas( Recording )

"Sammy's" disturbing rise in the Mafia from his first wary contact as a child with mobsters, to his phenomenal promotion to second-in-command of the much feared Gambino crime family. In his southwestern Brooklyn neighborhood, Sammy's father taught him to avoid certain men and never question their actions. But when those men helped the nine-year-old retrieve his stolen bicycle, he longed to be like them. Soon Sammy was adopting the Mafia's methods of intimidation and violence. His efforts culminated in the thrilling day when he took the solemn blood vow to join their Honored Society. After lengthy interviews with "Sammy the Bull", Peter Maas chronicles the riveting story, much of it in Gravano's own voice, of a wasted life and unalterable choices
