This guy has to be nuts. He researched all his material by going face to face with real criminals who have ties to the underworld. He even smokes crack with a prostitute..

By far the most interesting section was the weed smuggling chapter. I am fascinated by the drug trade in general, and its interesting to see just how similiar things are over here in the states.

There's a chapter on crack, and how it was created to market to lower class society as cocaine sales were declining. Its interesting to view crack by a business standpoint, and as someone who has come from a troubled past and having grown up in a lower income San Antonio neighborhood, it really is quite frightening.
