The premise in Mob Rules is that the mob can teach cultural values to big business Basic ethical values are described in vignettes that contain parallel examples showing the ethical principle and how it is applied one example from mob life one example from regular life The principles themselves are sound loyalty mentoring keeping your word following the chain of command etc but the examples feel out of sync Almost every mob example ends in murder or is awash in murder and this brutality leaves no room for empathy no matter how sound the principle may be Al Capone is admirable because he could admit when he was wrong but he ordered the murder of hundreds of men Be humble not flashy; regular people prefer this but in the mob being too flashy gets you murdered Follow the chain of command; if you don't you can be relieved of your command and in the mob that means you get murdered Obey the boss; if you don't you could get fired and in the mob you know what that meansThe second half of the book has fewer examples giving only the advice and feels less at odds with itselfThe vignettes are told in chapters of 1 3 pages and have a fable like uality as if taking a gondola ride that strays onto an urban River Styx with a guide who knows it all too well here is the steakhouse where the Gambino bosses were gunned down; there is where Petrucelli was murdered when he wouldn't kill his friend after he was ordered to do so As for the benefit of what the mob can teach businessmen the large corporations already know about these values By the time they reach upper management they have received training in mentoring coaching ethics teamwork bonding and everything in between so these things are not new but the book does provide a different point of viewAt the end of the day this is a glimpse into mob logic street ethics and their underlying rationale

Mob RulesApped Watch what you say every day How to bury the hatchet but not in someone's head Don't split yourself in half The wrong decision is better than none at all Don't build Yankee stadium just supply the concrete Spotting new rackets Leave the gun take the cannolisand beware of hubris 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 d. Louis Ferrante is a former member of the mob He read a book for the first time when he was in prison and eventually got himself out Mob Rules is a book with a slew of rules that apply both to the mob and the business man The concept was interesting but I thought his writing was too formulaic He said he taught himself the art of writing By constantly reading he taught himself how to write Writers are artists but Ferrante's writing wasn't art It is all relative I suppose Many of the rules are common senselike getting it right ahead of time duh accompanied with a mob story with maybe a uote or two While some of the stories were interesting at times I just wanted to put the book down and not pick it up again Ferrante comes across as cocky and occasionally annoying I'd recommend maybe reading a rule or two at a time instead of reading it in a couple of sittings like I did Maybe I would have liked it better if I had read it that waymaybe not I received my copy of this book through first reads Initially excited about this book overall I was disappointed
