Mickey Cohen knew how to tell interesting stories, even if they didn't make sense at times. I really wonder how much of this book is truth. Enjoyed it, it was pretty funny at times. Feb 16, 2016 Frank Palardy rated it really liked it. Shelves: security-crime. This is actually a great book. One of the interesting things is Cohen lived in Brentwood right near where Ron Goldman worked.

Mickey was a slow learner. Enjoyable view of his career in criminality. If you've been following the buzz about "Gangster Squad" and want to get more involved in the story line, Cohen's autobiography will do that. rackets and wreaking a lot of havoc on polite society.

Mickey Cohen's fifteen-year prison term for tax evasion effectively removed one of the most flamboyant-and powerful-underworld figures from public consciousness. This autobiography, assisted by John Peer Nugent, should provide a brief reprise (for anyone who wants it) of the '40's and '50's, when Cohen reigned on the West Coast and corruption, despite a limited vocabulary, had class.

A few months after Mickey Cohen got out of the hospital, his longtime crony Frank Niccoli-who he’d known since Cleveland days-turned up missing. The next summer, I ran into Cohen at Sherry’s-or actually, I was just coming out of Sherry’s, a date on my arm; another cool, starlit night, around two . the major difference this time being the starlet was a blonde.

Mickey's story is fascinating. The only criticism I have is that the ends abruptly.

A good historical look at the life and ambitions of LAs most famous Hood., Mickey Cohen. My agency, the IRS Intelligence Division, working with the LAPD, was able to put him away for income tax evasion-TWICE. Mickey was a slow learner. Enjoyable view of his career in criminality

If you've been following the buzz about "Gangster Squad" and want to get more involved in the story line, Cohen's autobiography will do that. He pulls no punches. He basically admits, in his own salty language, to running the L.A. rackets and wreaking a lot of havoc on polite society. I enjoyed the book, which was well-used when I bought it. I would give it a fifth star if it were re-published with some update material on what happened to the mob after Cohen died.

Glad to get this book which evokes 1940s & 50s L.A. Where you see l.a. As a character as much as Mickey Cohen.

YES LOVED IT AS MICKEY WAS A DEAR FRIEND....THE AUTHOR MISD ME - GUESS I MEAN MICKEY
John Nugent, of Santa Monica, wrote this bio for Mickey Cohen. It is fascinating in many respects and in others sorely lacking. There is no discussion of drugs or prostitution. Who would admit to that? Marilyn Monroe, for example, is never mentioned. Also odd, the entire book is lacking for CIA or FBI references and stories, something that played a great role in Cohen's life. However, at the time it was written, it followed the pattern of mob bios with one exception - Mickey Cohen was behind its publication, something unusual for a mob boss, almost unheard of and criticized by his cronies around the world. Still, it is often referenced as one of the only books available that pretend to show Cohen's voice, excepting Hollywood's Celebrity Gangster, The Incredible Life and Times of Mickey Cohen, by Brad Lewis, a newer take published in 2008.
