What the community says about Little Man
- "This is a very well researched biography of Meyer Lansky, probably one of the best. It's objective but also vaguely sympathetic, which is understandable, considering that there are some public misconceptions about this mob figure - he was perhaps not as personally responsible for as many crimes as his reputation might indicate. Anyway, this is a nice work to have around to read and enjoy and to potentially cite as a source due to the fact it is exhaustive in scope."

in What are the best biography books"Being a fan of the good ol' gangster genre, this is definitely a book I'd suggest. Not the best book in the world, but it definitely sates a desire that a fiction book will not hit. Something to tide you over between your next elitist novel, and graphic novel. Perfect for that little bit of flair inbetween reads."
- " No mafia buff is worth their salt if they do not know about Meye Lansky. This book is extremely well researched. It reads well but sometimes comes off a little too detail heavy. That still doesn’t stop me from highly recommending that you read this book. The other great part about this book is that is comes with photos as well. You can get a real image to go along with the story that you create in your mind. These gangsters are a part of American history and this is.a great way to learn about one of the best."

He was a gangster and I would recommend this book for you if you like to read about gangster things. This is one of the best non fiction books about the gangsters that you will ever read!"
- "If you are a mob fan, this is the book for you. It gives a good impression of the life of a mob man at that time in America's life. "
