    Not bad for an outlaw (or in-law for that matter).

    Don't expect to be overcome with a lengthy history of the mobs. Al Capone is the star here, as he should be (as he would want to be). The star resource is a photo of Al and some cronies at the Boardwalk in Atlantic City. For a quick digital postcard of the times, this is a good read. For a lengthy history try the library.

    This book?? A total of 50 pages long!! While it is an interesting twist on The subject matter...it's a 30 minute read, if you're a slow reader. Disappointed that I thought I was purchasing a book and not a short story or essay!

    History of a vaction and entertainemt area I had never really considered. More to the Boardwalk than meets the eye. Better understanding of the new TV show Atlantic city even though the characters are different.

    The lighter side of the mafia...I remember hearing about a big conference of the country's top gangsters back in the days when nucky johnson ruled atlantic city. and this writer has gone back and dissected the tales, which turn out to be tall tales. anyway, it's a good, funny story.
