From the fans of Gravano’s reality TV series “Mob Wives and true crime aficionados.” !
Book Description :
Karen Gravano is the daughter of Sammy “the Bull” Gravano, once one of the mafia’s most feared hit men. With nineteen confessed murders, the former Gambino Crime Family underboss—and John Gotti’s right-hand man—is the highest ranking gangster ever to turn State’s evidence and testify against members of his high-profile crime family.
But to Karen, Sammy Gravano was a sometimes elusive but always loving father figure. He was ever-present at the head of the dinner table. He made a living running a construction firm and several nightclubs. He stayed out late, and sometimes he didn’t come home at all. He hosted “secret” meetings at their house, and had countless whispered conversations with “business associates.” By the age of twelve, Karen knew he was a gangster. And as she grew up, while her peers worried about clothes and schoolwork, she was coming face-to-face with crime and murder. Gravano was nineteen years old when her father turned his back on the mob and cooperated with the Feds. The fabric of her family was ripped apart, and they were instantly rejected by the communities they grew up in.
This is the story of a daughter’s struggle to reconcile the image of her loving father with that of a murdering Mafioso, and how, in healing the rift between the two, she was able to forge a new life.

This book is not a book of absolute authority. It is the compilation of thoughts and blogs that the author has reflected upon over the recent history of the global economic conditions we face at this time. It is a book of current events substance, and not a book to be put on a shelf for later reflection. It is a book about you and me and how the political, social and economic forces prevalent in our society today will manipulate and control our environment if we do not respond. The book is a “call to action” for each reader to respond accordingly to his own intellect, will and discernment. The author has gone to great pains not to present a conservative nor liberal perspective, but a perspective that leaves open the door for more discussion and refinement. In no way is this book meant to be a definitive authority on any subject. Instead, it is to be used as a thought provoking piece to prime the pump of each reader’s mind and heart to activate further knowledge and awareness of the forces around us. It is a primer textbook on the national and global economy today. It is a manual of how one is able to shape ideas and put those ideas into practical reasoning and action. It is a book for anyone concerned about our economy to give him/her the time needed upon which to reflect, understand, and remain informed of the most important issues of our day.
