I couldn't help but see the first review posted. This person declines to identify themselves. This book is not about the Dinner Set Gang. If you would read the book you would of seen that. This book is about a genius father and a disgruntled son. True there are references to the Dinner Set Gang. Walter was not an original member, but he was a member at one time. The original members stole from their own and when Walter realized that he left and started his own group. Since then others have cloned their methods. Walter was a great jewel thief who is no longer in business. He has been a family man and a wonderful husband and father. The original members of the Dinner Set Gang are still thieves and some are still incarcerated in prison. I would highly recommend the book. I happen to have been involved in a small way investigating this gang and Walter Shaw and found the book based on my research to be accurate and true. I would recommend it to anyone.

Dull at best. I saw a story on this on TV and was excited to read this book. The storyline was choppy and I could not get into the book. I enjoy Mafia/mob type books, but this one was nothing special. I kept hoping for more substance, but in my opinion, one story ran into another and nothing particularly interesting was revealed. I also question the author's account of his father's inventions. Seems that the father really got a raw deal in life.

It is a very interesting, factual book about an inventive father whose inventions were overlooked or stolen by big business, including AT&T.

The people and story in this book is a documentary now. It isn't out yet but I saw this Facebook page.

Walter Shaw Sr. was an amazing man and everyone needs to know his story and inventions.

The story kept losing my interest. I was surprised because I read a lot of the ratings for this book but it just couldn't keep my attention.
