Maybe a law student would enjoy this book. As someone who wanted to read a biography, I was very disappointing. This book is full of unedited court records. I expect the author, if he wants to talk about the legal proceedings, to read the court records and tell a story around it. Then include the court records as a footnote.
Remus is a fascinating figure, I would love to get my hands on a proper biography.

If you have ever read the book Jazz Bird (a very good book), then read this book. It will give you a much more real account of George Remus, Prohibition, the government at the time, and who Imogene Remus really was and where she came from. Before reading this book, while I realized that Jazz Bird was historical fiction, I didn't realize just how much of it was "fiction". This book is very well written, easy to read, and very informative.

A very well-told account of one of the more fascinating characters of that era. Mr. Cook researched his subject well, and tells the story in an entertaining fashion. I would recommend it!

Very interesting fellow.

With this writer's list of published works, I expected a better written book. The research seems solid, but the writer often screws up his sentence structure and grammar. He misidentifies people, ("Mr Ellis" or "Mr. Cheney", which is it). There are redundant sentences throughout. "Judge so and so said..." Next sentence: "Judge so and so said.." The author starts sentences with "But" and "However," and his subject to verb compliment is off repeatedly. The information is intriguing, but the copy editing is distracting. This reads like most first drafts, and the copy-editing is lax here. Too bad. The true story of the lawyer gone bad during Prohibition is a fascinating one.

While I enjoyed the information contained in this book, it was a difficult read due to the complete lack of editing. The entire book was plagued with grammatical and spelling errors which made it feel like a very amateurish submission. The story of George Remus is a fascinating tale of the Prohibition era and worthy of first-rate accounting. Unfortunately, this writer wasn't up to the task. What you get here is a pretty cut-and-paste version of Remus' story gleaned mostly from newspaper accounts of the events with a bit of history of the Harding administration tossed in. Sadly, it leaves you wanting for much more about the characters and their interactions surrounding some extraordinary events. This was more play-by-play with no color commentary.

Too many errors -- in fact, spelling, etc. Remus was one of the key figures of the Prohibition Era, but this book is a disappointment. It lacked editing.
Great biography and insight into prohibition and corruption.
Perhaps he was the real Jay Gatsby.
