    You don t have to live in New Jersey to read this book, I m sure these shenanigans go on in other states, just not as flagrant or as often This book should be required reading for any adult especially in New Jersey maybe then the average New Jersey voter will stop voting the same crooks into office year after year Besides listing acts which would make any descent person ashamed to show themselves in public, this book makes a point to mention that the corruption is in the culture After all You don t have to live in New Jersey to read this book, I m sure these shenanigans go on in other states, just not as flagrant or as often This book should be required reading for any adult especially in New Jersey maybe then the average New Jersey voter will stop voting the same crooks into office year after year Besides listing acts which would make any descent person ashamed to show themselves in public, this book makes a point to mention that the corruption is in the culture After all, if everybody commits pension fraud then why shouldn t you The Soprano State is informative, funny and entertaining yet horrifying at the same time as a New Jersey resident I felt like I needed to take a shower after every chapter or segment Only in New Jersey would...

    What a depressing read.Not the book itself, it s well written and entertaining It s the subject matter political corruption in New Jersey.Remember how on The Sopranos there always seemed to be rumors of indictments floating around Well in New Jersey that shit is real every couple of years Federal investigators swoop in and bag a bunch of criminals Except they re not your typical crooks, they re New Jersey politicians or people in positions of authority and public trust And it happens all What a depressing ...

    While there is a lot of interesting information in this book, I can t recommend it all that highly There was far too much focus on the authors and their fellow journalists as opposed to the scandals themselves There was very little narrative flow, as the authors chose instead to jump from one horrifying anecdote to another This was analogous to two guys sitting at a bar reminiscing over some of New Jersey s greatest corruption hits At times, ...

    While this was a nightmare to read, it was a good read Re visiting the past 20 years of corruption in New Jersey was not fun, but it is necessary Ingle and McClure do an admirable job in documenting what is wrong with government here in the Garden State.The only downpoint was re visiting Jimmy Hoffa While it served as the introduction to organized crime, Hoffa has little to do with NJ politics directly.Fortunately for the authors unfortunately for the rest of us , new editions can keep being While this was a nightmare to read, it was a good read Re visiting the past 20 years of corruption in New Jersey was not fun, but it is necessary Ingle and McClure do an...

    The Soprano State does what it sets out to do provide a comprehensive look at the overwhelming swaths of government corruption plaguing New Jersey s politisphere Ingle and McClure do an excellent job of conveying and being open about their subjectivity with regards to the topic The main criticism is that it readslike an encyclopedia than a book Having read the book three months ago, all I can truly remember is that New Jersey has a terrible corruption problem There are just too many n The Soprano ...

    Good book about all the corruption and nonsense in NJ politics Unfortunately, to anyone who reads the Star Ledger this is mostly old news and nothing really new There was some good stuff about Golan Cipel and McGreevey s relationship, and all of McGreevey s boys He was a pimp I knew about this long before the scandal because my mom works for the state and heard lots of rumors Also of note is the UMDNJ student who stole a corpse hand for his stripper girlfriend, current Governor Corzine s Good book about all the corruption and nonsense in NJ politics Unfortunately, to anyone who reads the Star Ledger this is mostly old news and nothing really new There was some good stuff about Golan Cipel and McGreevey s relationship, and all of McGreevey s boys He was a pimp I knew about this long before the scandal because my mom ...
