"While Mr. Boardwalk will particularly resonate with people who remember Atlantic City prior to gambling, people who grew up going to the Jersey Shore, and people growing up in the 70’s, its well-drawn characters and compelling story should be of interest to a much wider audience.... This is one of those books that you pick up and cannot put down and I cannot recommend it enough."
