Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
"Those who read the brief, light-hearted text of this book will do so for entertainment, not for information," said LJ's reviewer (LJ 7/79). Levi and Eisenberg chronicle the oddities that characterized Atlantic City before gambling laid the beauty contests, diving horses, boxing midgets, etc., permanently to rest.
