Publisher's Summary

"In 1980, my life as a 'Goodfella' came to an end… I traded my Brioni and Armani suits for T-shirts and jeans. I became a normal citizen. I became Joe Schmoe," says Henry Hill, author of Gangsters and Goodfellas and subject of Wiseguy, which was the inspiration for the blockbuster film Goodfellas.

After a quarter of a century of silence, Hill can finally tell us the rest of the story, Gangsters and Goodfellas picks up where Wiseguy left off, taking readers on the crazy ride of Henry's life - hiding out in the Witness Protection Programme, doing prison time for drug charges, testifying in high-profile, heavily guarded mafia trials, leaving his wife and children and eventually ending up in the entertainment business.

Including an exclusive selection of photographs from Henry's personal collection, Gangsters and Goodfellas also reveals Henry's lifelong struggle with addiction, his 'business' relationships that have ranged from mob bosses to movie producers and how, through everything, he survived.

Henry Hill, the inspiration for the book Wiseguys and movie Goodfellas is the co-author of A Goodfella's Guide to New York and The Wiseguy Cookbook. He lives in Los Angeles. Gus Russo, a critically-acclaimed investigative reporter and author of The Outfit and Live by the Sword, lives in Baltimore.

    "Boring Whinge"

    One long self serving whine from Hill about life in the Witsec programme. I came away with the impression that this guy has gotten away with being a complete scumbag all his life yet still acts like he is some kind of martyr. My advice would be don't buy this book and put any more money in his pocket. I wish I hadn't. It's boring anyway.

    "Very Good without too much violence."

    Was a great read! very good to have a mob story that was very factual but not too much violence. Love or hate Henry you have to admire his ability to keep changing in moulding to the environment.

    "I Enjoyed It!"

    I found the narration very good.
    I'm interested in Mafia stories and read this book when it first came out but enjoyed it much more by listening.

    Story
    "Too long"

    It is an interesting story but it goes on too long. Good for an airplane journey as it doesn't need 100% attention. Audio equivalent of Under Seige😜
    Still, pleased I stuck with it.

    Story
    "A bit indulgent"

    The start of the book covers territory covered in Goodfellows (I've seen film, but not read book) and it felt to me, at times, that the book was created more so there guy could tell his story, and earn some money, rather than for the benefit of the listener. It would have been interesting to hear from the people around him.
