If Meyer Lansky did not believe in G-d as the book seems to state, Honor of parent is the biggest Mitzvah in the Torah-
So, what gives? There was so much more and much repetition from other books on the subject...
I enjoyed it though.....
The author presented a rounded view of the criminals: their relationships with their families, their relatioships with their colleagues, and their feelings about being Jewish. It is to the author's credit that he did not try to excuse their behavior or present them as anything but criminals. His account presented them as humnan beings, but not as sympathetic characters. Once started, I had trouble putting the book down.
