Description

"Extraordinarily interesting...Mr. Porter has done an excellent job telling the tale of a very unusual entrepreneur." --The New York Times Book Review

"Porter has written an undeniably entertaining book--a People Magazine article writ large, with a dose of Miami Vice and more than we need to know about kinky sex between Jung and his companera, Mirtha." --The Boston Sunday Globe

"The story belongs to anyone who has ever savored a well-told tale of adventure, greed, deceit, and revenge. Best of all, it's true." --Houston Chronicle

"An eye-opening, often hilarious account . . . larded with anecdotes" --Toronto Star

"A sleigh-ride-to-hell story of how '60s hippie innocence turned into '80s megadepravity...finely researched, told with pizzazz." --Kirkus Reviews

"With drama and detail, former Newsweek writer Porter reconstructs the fast, amoral life of George Jung . . . adventures with stacks of cash, kinky sex, and dangerous deals hold voyeuristic fascination." --Publishers Weekly

"An incredible tale that traces Jung's beginnings as a hippie marijuana smuggler in California to the top of the cocaine trade." --Houston Post

"Bruce Porter tells a powerful story and doesn't pull his punches. You have to keep reminding yourself it isn't fiction." --Detroit Free Press

"Told with such flair, one can't turn the pages fast enough." --Chicago Daily Southtown Star

"Fascinating, sometimes humorous, sometimes titillating, and always intriguing . . . a page-turner, thanks to Porter's easy-to-read style." --News-Press, Glendale, CA
