Being born and raised in R.I., one could not help but hear of Buddy Cianci. Charismatic?-- Compassionate?--Corrupt?--All accurate descriptions of the man who changed Providence for the better. Providence B.C. (Before Cianci)and Providence A.C.(After Cianci) showed his skill at managing the greatest improvement project of his era. HOW he got it done makes this "politics as usual" book well worth the read

Great book about "Buddy". The man was brilliant but got caught up in greed and a temper. Too bad because he did a lot for the city. I think the people of Providence would elect him again if he was able to run when he gets out of prison.
