Boardwalk Empire I am an American History sponge, a boomer, and proud American. What is written in this book is not surprising. This book deals with the power brokers and politics on top of the whole thing and clarified for me why it all worked as well as it did. I imagine HBO will give us the grit, glamore and stories that were the daily.
