    1. I loved it!I started this book at an advantage because I saw the documentary. This was a truly engaging read about a world I only heard about. Barnes is a bit of a narcissist and his writing is laced with subtle jabs for those he is still upset with. (Of course the beginning acknowledgement at first is not so subtle)We must read with the thought in mind that there is more to one side of every story, but this book paints a vivid picture and lots of historical relevance.


    2. “Mr. Untouchable, The Rise, Fall, and Resurrection of Heroin’s Teflon Don” by Leroy “Nicky” Barnes and Tom Folsom, published by RuggedLand.Category – Memoir/Crime Publication Date – February 06, 2007.Nicky Barnes is now in the Witness Protection Program. He tells his own story that borders on the unbelievable. It is hard to image how a person could live the life he did.Barnes was no stranger to a jail cell but he learned quickly how to become the main distributor of illegal drugs i [...]


    3. I picked up this book the last week of May and I finished it in 3 days!! This book was well written and a definite page turner. Not often found in most memoirs or biographies.I'm not one to read many biographies or memoirs, or at least until recently. I was surprised at how intriguing and interesting this book was. The narrative voice drew me in. If you don't know much about Nicky Barnes, the basics will do: He's a notorious drug-addict turned drug-kingpin from one of New York's most famous neig [...]


    4. The way in which this book was written is a huge disappointment. 98% of the plot concerns how many ladies he piped or the amount of money he made. No real feel or plot.


    5. A little difficult to get into at first, but quickly picks up the pace as Barnes describes a vivid street life in 1970s NYC. I could've done without the repetitious (and abundant) thought breaks (postage stamp-sized silhouettes of Nicky's head appear between paragraphs on nearly every page), but whatever. (As Nicky Barnes might say, "The fuck you need that many silhouettes throughout the book for?")His ego is still quite apparent, and he doesn't hesitate to point out (several times over) the num [...]


    6. It's was a easy read. Since it was an autobiography he had his own flow of chronology and it's a bit jumbled. Each chapter jumps to another subject and to another month or year so it's tough to keep up with. Great insight into the justice system and how cash can only keep you out of jail for so long. There is a bit of dialog from Rudy Gulliani when he was District DA of NYC which makes it interesting. Apparently there is documentary coming up so I think I would like to see that.


    7. Good book for what it was Mr. Untouchable Nicky Barnes story of his rise to power, his forming of the council to distribute heroin in Harlem and other parts of NYC and his decision to turn informant and bring them all down after he feels that they have betrayed him after he is sent to prison. This is told by Barnes so obviously is completely one-sided.


    8. I'm not sure what I liked more: the fact this his face was used as a page break or the subject matter at hand. Barnes is extremely candid with his thoughts about his life as one of the leaders of a large drug cartel in the 70s. There are lessons to be learned and funny anecdotes to be had.


    9. a friend of mine bought five copies of this (he works in a bank) because he thought that this is the best book to illustrate perfect business organization had a hypnotic effect on myself - i thought i should not fear NYPD - so said Nicky Barnes :))


    10. It's written by Nicky Barnes, so who knows how much is true (contradicts the movie "American Gangster" for sure), but it's still a good story. It reads like a movie.


    11. Mr. Untouchable is a must read book. It tells a story of how Nicky Barnes started in and became one of the richest heroin supplier in New York.
