"War at the Shore is a great look inside why Wynn left Atlantic City the second time, and provides a good perspective in general on the political and deal-making (not design side) of casino development." -- David G. Schwartz

I didn't like the epilogue as it felt like an ad for the author's current business.
He also glosses over the mob ties in all this. Example Mrs Paul McCartney's (Beatles fame) father has/had some very complex mob ties with his trucking biz. But quibbles major and minor aside (and there are many) the story is a primer on how politics and business work and don't. And there is some real drama and emotion. Unftunately it is about the low life gambling biz and the sleaze of it oozes out between the lines.
Did I add that with NY legalizing 7 casinois Atlantic City is about to go bust with gambling down way down for the past few years. AC is about to be what it has been for 40 years: a slum and gambling and the creepy politics allied with it only kinda enriched themselves. The City itself is likely doomed.
But a good read most of the time
