Recensione

The Economist
Taken as a whole, [ZeroZeroZero] is an angry rebuke to all those—traffickers and politicians alike—who perpetuate the violence….By reminding readers of the senseless suffering wrought by the cocaine trade, this book makes a powerful case for a new approach.”
 
Financial Times
In articulating [his] cri de coeur, [Saviano] has developed a literary style that switches from vivid descriptions of human depravity to a philosophical consideration of the meaning of violence in the modern world. Indeed, when he revisits his work on Naples — the city where he was brought up and from which he is now excluded — his reflections soar into the realm of the poetic. But for me, most important of all is the hope Saviano gives to countless victims of criminal violence by standing up to its perpetrators, especially those from his home country.

Booklist
 (starred review)

“With keen observation and deep probing, Saviano is an anthropologist and philosopher as much as a journalist. This is an epic account of how the modern cocaine trafficking business came to be and how widespread, how impenetrable, and how intertwined with international commerce and politics—and our everyday lives—it is.”

Kirkus
:
“This revealing new book, with a strong focus on Mexico's cartels, surges with fast-moving prose detailing the lives of drug lords and pushers, the inner workings of their violent world, and how their lucrative business (between $25 billion and $50 billion annually) affects all our lives…. Saviano describes the complexities of money laundering, how world banks help make it possible, and the many ways in which drugs are smuggled: in paintings, handcrafted doors, frozen fish, and more. Throughout, the author provides vivid stories of the lives of well-known drug bosses and their minions. Saviano says he can no longer look at a beach or a map without seeing cocaine, and many will share that view after reading this dark, relentless, hyperreal report.”


From the Hardcover edition.

3.0 su 5 stelle First 200 pages are great. A good editor would have greatly helped 9 settembre 2015
Di FernandoVenezuela - Pubblicato su Amazon.com
Formato: Copertina rigida Acquisto verificato
The first 200 pages of this book are absolutely gripping. I finished them in one sitting, which for a curmudgeon of a reader like me is rare. The first section deals mostly with the Mexican drug cartels and their violent creation story and wars over turf. It's written mostly without the "I" voice and self referential prose overdose that defines the rest of the book. As a result this first section is must-read material and the author puts on a clinic in how to write fantastic creative narrative non-fiction.

As soon as the author moves to his native Italy, however, which was the subject of his previous book (making him a hunted man by the Italian mafia) the writing slips regularly into the perspective of the author, utilizing the "I" voice along with a very impressionistic and non-journalistic style of writing. This tends to take the reader out of the narrative head space of the story and into the sometimes adolescent meanderings of the author as he describes in an overly stylistic way how difficult his life has become now that he is being pursued by the Neapolitan mafia. As the remaining stories are woven together with an over-stylized abundance of prose they become difficult to follow and the rest of the book becomes tough sledding for the reader.

I wish the author had forgone the references to his own battles with organized crime, and saved his first-person perspective for a later memoir instead of derailing the urgent, matter-of-fact narrative that defines the beginning of the book. I feel like a good editor would have stopped this project from mashing up its scope and losing focus over its central narrative. I wish I could have worked with this author and reigned in some of his better tendencies as an absolutely engrossing and brilliant story-teller, because that's exactly what he is. Saviano is a fantastically gifted raconteur who just needs the guidance of an editor who can reign in some his bombastic literary aesthetics so that the brilliant tales he weaves don't come off the rails like one of the hot tempered crime bosses he describes.

5.0 su 5 stelle A detailed account on what's going on in the dark side of the world 4 febbraio 2017
Di edsetiadi - Pubblicato su Amazon.com
Formato: Formato Kindle Acquisto verificato
Criminal organisations are much bigger than we can ever possibly thought. They are the firm structure in a broken society, one of the main reasons a lot of African countries have not collapsed yet. Their laundered money comprised of nearly 1/3 of liquidity during the 2008 financial crisis, and practically became the safety net that kept the global economy from collapsing.

Moreover, criminal organisations are also the direct reasons for some of the political changes occurring in the world, such as the killings of many politicians in Mexico, the forced regime changes in Colombia, or the imprisonment of Ukraine's Prime Minister Yulia Tymoshenko after a failed gas deal with Russia (which involved the Russian mafijas).

And in the veins of the global criminal network lies 1 commodity that is vital for the movement of the underground economy: cocaine.

In 2012 Apple became the most valuable company (by market capitalisation) ever listed on the New York Stock Exchange, thanks to the launch of iPhone 5 and iPad mini. Its stock price jump by 67% in just one year, meaning that if you had invested $1000 in the beginning of 2012, by the end of the year you would have a whopping $1670. However, by comparison, if you had invested $1000 in cocaine in the beginning of 2012, after a year you would get a phenomenal return of $182,000. And this is why cocaine play a central role in the criminal underworld.

This book is truly a masterpiece, an essential read if you want to know the complete picture of the world. It grasps and analyses the inner structure of multiple criminal organisations around the world - from the Colombian cartels, the Mexican cartels, the Italian mafias (including the largest criminal organisation 'nrangdheta), to the Russian mafijas and their eastern European counterparts - and their dealings with cocaine.

It gives a very detailed accounts on the sophisticated trade routes and the importance of the skills of the logistics guys. And it also tell the stories on the creative ways smugglers carry their stash, including swallowing them with a condom, or hide their cocaine in paintings, statues, fake pineapple, can of squid, even children's books and artificial breasts.

Furthermore, the author went to some great length to research everything there is about the industry, including visiting the distributors of cocaine and coming down to the streets to meet several pushers, and he vividly describes the gruesome details on the nasty effects of cocaine, which is very sobering.

He also reveals seemingly all the names of the biggest fishes in the industry, all down to the smallest details like how they torture their enemies and back stab each others, which has angered the criminal underworld and endangering him up to a point that he ended up needing protection 24/7.

With that in mind, this is quite possibly the most violent book I've ever read, a horrific reality on the real state of the world. A Mexican drug queen Sandra Ávila Beltrán repeatedly said "the world is disgusting", and after reading this book from cover to cover I eventually get what she means, her world certainly looks very dark indeed.

Di Amazon Customer - Pubblicato su Amazon.com

I suppose one can criticize the book for being a bit unwieldy. I could also take issue with Saviano's overarching theme that cocaine is what makes the world (economic and otherwise) go 'round, as that's clearly an overstatement. However, I still think it's one of the best books I've read in some time and presents a rare glimpse into the world of international narco trafficking. It should be nearly impossible to have anything but great respect for Saviano's willingness to go deeply into worlds few others have ever been brave enough to enter, and to do so to such an extent that he himself has become a target of those he writes about. I can't imagine this book has lightened that personal load any. Perhaps the most effective thing "Zero Zero Zero" adds to the discussion of this subject is the way in which various organized crime groups have partnered (not always successfully or without bloodshed, of course) to make the cocaine trade increasingly efficient over time. There are great books on the rise of cartels in Latin America and others (including one Saviano wrote himself) on Italian organized crime, as well as groups from other parts of the world. I'm not sure there is another book in recent years which connects the dots between them the way this one does, however, and ultimately that's probably its greatest contribution to the discussion.

4.0 su 5 stelle which sometimes reads like a novel 29 agosto 2015
Di Bob Miller - Pubblicato su Amazon.com
Formato: Copertina rigida Acquisto verificato
In the jacket for this book about cocaine, it is mentioned that the author earned the cooperation of law enforcement agencies and officials from around the world and this “broadened his perspective to take in the entire global ‘corporate’ entity that is the drug trade and the complex money-laundering operations that allow it to function, often with the complicity of the world’s largest banks”. Well, maybe, and if that is so, the author starts out, in my book, with a skewed perspective on the cocaine business—it is an unlikely scenario where an ongoing, and extremely successful worldwide criminal enterprise with coalescent networks, could be realistically exposed by law enforcement—rather, it seems more prudent to conclude that Saviano has been provided with after-the-fact information following arrests and convictions. Some of this information could be read about in the papers. The book discusses way too many characters and alleged players, and because of this, it frequently drags on and on (El Chapo, a major dealer in the book, is captured and jailed. Since the publication of this book, he has escaped).
In essence, the author explains how the cocaine business is run by some of the most ruthless people on the planet, and that they employ a sophisticated network of men and women to move drugs from their growing point to the consumer all across the world. Certain areas are governed and ruled by different people, many with lengthy family roots. Police and political corruption is the rule. Political changes in the Colombian government, including a tough stance against the purveyors of cocaine, have enabled Mexico to propel to the leading area for cocaine distribution. Because of the vast sums of money generated by the cartels and gangsters, banks and other financial institutions have joined into the fray by hiding and laundering their money for handsome profits—as much as $1.6 trillion the author says. The methods of how the drugs are smuggled into the USA and other countries are explained here, sometimes with extraordinary detail; drugs are hidden in baby’s diapers, submarines, shipments of all types of produce, in body parts of the living and the dead, and virtually by any method one could conceive of. Saviano works in the lives of some interesting characters into the this book, which sometimes reads like a novel. But the book does not really flow that well, one has to thumb back into the previous pages to recall events and names. Saviano does appear to have sank his heart and soul into the writing of this book, his second on the topic. For this reason, and because of his personal sacrifices (His life has been put in danger), I upgrade the book by one star.

5.0 su 5 stelle Absolutely mind blowing! Riveting and grotesque. 3 febbraio 2016
Di Bill - Pubblicato su Amazon.com
Formato: Formato Kindle Acquisto verificato
This is a gripping ride that opens your eyes to those who wield true power in this world. It is not for the faint hearted or for those who wish to exist within the safe little bubble we believe to be reality. It is gruesome and gut retching in the descriptions of how despicably the monsters, that the war on drags has created, operate. Reading this book is as addictive as it's subject matter and at times is not a pleasant experience. You'll finish it to find that it touched the inner core of your being and you will never look at the world in the same way again. It'll give you the drive that no self help book could ever achieve.
