Remember this great line from The Godfather Part Two: 'Keep your friends close, and your enemies closer"?

It’s just one engaging example of the wisdom of both real-life and cinematic mobsters captured in this entertaining collection.

The words come from gangster luminaries ranging from Meyer Lansky and Bugsy Siegel to the Corleones, and from films including Pulp Fiction. Packed with wiseguy insights into business, management, and life — plus plenty of photos of the highlighted figures — this is one of the most handsomely designed, exciting compendiums compiled in years.

Memorable lines from the wiseguys…wise thoughts for everyone:

  • "Don't let your tongue be your worst enemy."— John "Sonny" Franzese
  • "If you think your boss is stupid, remember: you wouldn't have a job if he was any smarter."— John Gotti, mobster
  • "Ever since we was kids, we always knew that people can be bought. It was only a question of who did the buyin' and for how much."— Charlie "Lucky" Luciano
  • "Honest people have no ethics."—Sam DeCavalcante
These compelling quotes are organised under 40 key principles - from Alliances to Warfare - conveniently presented in alphabetical order for easy reference.
