Salvatore Bill Bonanno (1932-2008) was the son of Joseph Bonanno, the head of the powerful Bonanno crime Family. He was the author of Bound by Honor and coauthor of the novel The Good Guys with Joseph Pistone and David Fisher, and he collaborated with Gay Talese on Honor Thy Father, a nonfiction chronicle of the Bonanno family. Little bits here and there, but most of the book was a self serving regurgitation of the same old stuff. What was new was not very significant. Bill had an opportunity to expose some interesting inside information and did not.

From the son of notorious crime boss Joe Bonanno comes a compendium of the real lives of the true sons of the Mafia-from the goings-on of the secret Commission meetings of the 1930s through 1960s to the clandestine details of the Mafia's most venerable rituals, techniques, and indoctrination ceremonies.

Reviews:
  • Wooden Purple Romeo
This seems like another attempt by Bill Bonanno to sanitize organized crime. The constant reference to "Our World" as if it were something more than organized crime really wore on me. I am not offended by a criminal writing a tell-all book. Most that do admit freely that they were criminals engaged in criminal activity. Bill Bonnano admits it too, but at the same time tries to cloak these criminal activities in some warped sense of honor and respect. I found the book irritating in that very little new inside information was revealed. Little bits here and there, but most of the book was a self serving regurgitation of the same old stuff. What was new was not very significant. Bill had an opportunity to expose some interesting inside information and did not. I got the impression that his main purpose was not to really tell anything new, but to use new tidbits as an excuse for another book, and a final opportunity to glorify the Bonanno legacy as one of honor, and not what it really was, a criminal enterprise just as bad as the rest of them.

Interesting if you want to know the history of their world starting around 1100AD in Sicily to present day in the USA. Not too much info for the last century. I was disappointed with this book
  • Jugami
This is a very interesting and well defined history of “ The Mob”. A good read.
  • Xanna
A very interesting and readable story. The thing that disturbs me about the "our world" concept is the thinking that they are able to operate outside the legal world and get free rein to do do so with impunity. I knew that they operated on a pay off and graft system but its hard to believe that it works if the majority of police, politicians and other officials were honest themselves.

It does not give me much faith in our "democratic world".
  • Vudojar
Bill Bonanno treaded the line closely, giving me enough information
to keep me turning pages. The implicit trust shared is very complex.
  • MegaStar
A very good story. Not something Hollywood could pull off. Looking forward to reading Mr. Bonanno’s other books.
  • RED
