From the back cover: "Sal Polisi used to brag that he had committed every crime except child abuse and rape...
As a wiseguy for some of New York's biggest crime families, 'Crazy Sal' Polisi couldn't imagine another way of life. Until the day he was busted and faced life behind bars. Then Sal decided it was time to talk-not so much for himself, but for the sake of his two teenaged sons.
But Sal Polisi discovered a chilling truth-no one squeals on the Mob. Forced to assume a new identity moving from town to town in the middle of the night, Sal's sons chose to stand by their father.
In exchange for federal protection, Sal Polisi took a huge gamble-he decided to testify against John Gotti, the reputed head of New York's powerful Gambino family.
From ruthless criminal to devoted father and lecturer against crime, this is Sal Polisi's story."
