Format: Paperback
I heard of Willie Sutton. The name was mentioned here and there as I grew up, but only spoken in hushed, almost reverent tones. Upon reaching adulthood I found out why. Willie Sutton was a bank robber, like my father. It is alleged he taught my father everything he knew about how to rob a bank. Of course, in adulthood my interest was piqued, so I got the book, more because of research than anything else. Well, I didn't find out anything about my father but ended up finding an extremely interesting, easy-to-read book about a very intelligent man who used his talents in the wrong way. Unfortunately for him, his life didn't amount to much; however you have to admire the fact that in the end he finally came to that realization and wrote the book to try to sway the next generation of potential hoodlums in the way of the straight and narrow. A smart man.. who finally put his intellect to good use. I would definitely put this book on my "things to read" list.

Willie Sutton is probably the best known bank robber in America (he was once even profiled on "60 Minutes"). Although his chosen occupation is pretty dubious, he was very good at it, and this biography is a truly gripping read. I can't give examples without spoiling the story, but it's one of the best true crime books I've read and would recommend it to anyone. Note that there's this book and "Where the Money Was" - both are very similar, so choose one or the other. Utterly engrossing.
