As an associate of the Gambino family, Ferrante relied on his instincts to pull off some of the biggest heists in US history. By the age of twenty-one, he had netted millions of dollars for his employers. His natural talent for management led Mafia bosses to rely on him.
After being arrested and serving an eight-and-a-half-year prison sentence, Ferrante went straight. He realized that the Mob's most valuable business lessons would allow him to survive and thrive in the real world. Now he offers eighty-eight time-tested Mafia strategies, including:

● Go get your own coffee!: Respecting the chain of command without being a sucker.

● The walls have ears: Never bad-mouth the boss.

● Is this phone tapped?: Watch what you say every day.

● How to bury the hatchet-but not in someone's head.

Ferrante brings his real-life experiences to the book, offering fascinating advice that really works and sharing behind-the-scenes episodes almost as outrageous as those occurring on Wall Street every day.
