Fascinating story

by Flowers on Feb 25, 2010

This was a fascinating story. I couldn't help but to keep thinking, why did a man who was smart, had a calculator for a mind, like to read, and who LOVED school -- go into a life of crime instead of college? With his brain, he could have gotten some kind of scholarship. Not everyone should be in college, but he certainly should have. With a degree he could have had a very imortant position in a legitimate job with a high-paying salary. Instead, he ended up with not much of anything, let alone all the misery he brought unto himself and his family because of his line of work.


little man,big book

by richard2 on Dec 18, 2008

robert lacey is a great writer and in 'little man' he shows why.the tale of Lansky is one that grabs your interest from page 1, and keeps it right up to the last page,with a real taste of the the ganster life and the period it was at it's peak,they say truth is stranger than fiction and this shows just that, amazing how these guys operated,i was sorry when i finished the book ,wished there was a few more chapters it was so enjoyable,the sign of a great read, this is a classic and will be enjoyed by anyone who likes great characters and amazing events,
