"Siegel presents a positive but not uncritical opinion of the Giuliani record, which is of interest in itself but especially if Giuliani runs for president." (Booklist)
Cosa pensano gli ascoltatori di The Prince of the City
Far more than a Guliani bio, this is a fascinating tale of NYC. Definitely the best book I've read in months!

Do not Vote for Giuliani
After reading this fabulously written biography of Rudy, I came to the conclusion that he was a GREAT mayor for New York but he will be a disaster as President of the United States of America.
Put Giuliani in charge of Detroit, which is now the most dangerous city in the country but let's keep him away from the White House.
Rudy for Prez???
It is interesting that Giuliani did not interview for this book. This book is more about trying to give Guiliani an image of a smart small government thinker to help in the Republican primaries. The whole time thoughts of can this work on the national scale run through the mind, and that is exactly what the author wants. Ultimately, it paints a picture of a powerful mayor who was able to institute True Republican (Read Jeffersonian not Neo Conservative) values into LOCAL government. Do you think it will work on a national scale? Listen and figure out for yourself...
