Boardwalk Empire: The Birth, High Times, and Corruption of Atlantic City - Nelson Johnson - A Short Summary & Review


A short summary of the book Boardwalk Empire:

The politics of gambling on the development of Atlantic City.

My favorite quote by Enoch Johnson:

Ordinary people avoid troubles. Extraordinary people turn them into advantage.


Questions to ponder while reading Boardwalk Empire:

Should capitalism control vices?

How many cities were created this way?

My review of Boardwalk Empire:

Great History Read.

Everyone has a vice (admitted or otherwise).

Steve Buscemi did a good job bringing Enoch "Nucky" Johnson to life.
