Straight from the horses mouth...

This is an awesome audio book, period. Rarely do you get a chance to hear this kind of stuff from someone who was actually 'in' the mafia... You will hear some things that are not in the movie. One final point about this is that Joe Pistone (author and narrator), is easy to listen to. Johnny Depp came scarily close to imitating his voice in the film, its easy to imagine its actually him narrating this at times. You will not be disappointed!

Maybe better than the movie!

The movie is outstanding and the audio book may be even better as it includes actual recordings between Pistone and the mobsters, which is pretty eerie to hear now. The only negative - for a former FBI agent, you would think Pistone would be able to read better....
