Jimmy Hoffa – Almost 50 Years Later

On July 30, 1975, the Teamsters’ former president, Jimmy Hoffa, disappeared. He remains one of the most enigmatic figures of the 20th century.

In 1960, my father stumbled unwittingly into a power struggle with Hoffa. My dad escaped with his life, his wife and his kids, but little else.

He was one of the lucky ones.

My first book, Crossing Hoffa – A Teamster’s Story. was a Chicago Tribune “Best Book of the Year” in 2007, and it continues to attract attention. You can listen to my latest interview about the story here.
