Genre(s): Nonfiction, True Accounts, True Crime, Biographies & Memoirs, History
roviding the inspiration and source material for the upcoming HBO series produced by Academy Award–winning director Martin Scorsese and Emmy Award–winning screenwriter Terence Winter, this riveting and wide-reaching history explores the sordid past of Atlantic City—forever a freewheeling town long-dedicated to the fast buck—from the city’s heyday as a Prohibition-era mecca of lawlessness to its rebirth as a legitimate casino resort in the modern era. A colorful cast of powerful characters, led by “Commodore” Kuehnle and “Nucky” Johnson, populates this stranger-than-fiction account of corrupt politics and the toxic power structure that grew out of guile, finesse, and extortion. Atlantic City’s shadowy past—through its rise, fall, and rebirth—is given new light in this revealing, and often appalling, study of legislative abuse and organized crime.

ump behind the wheel and buckle up for a learning journey you won’t soon forget! Alphabet Car, an innovative educational app that makes remembering letters and words fun, puts you in the driver’s seat. You’ll be fully engaged, using your eyes, ears, and hands. If you’re new to Alphabet Car, you’ll start out driving Baby Bus; as you continue playing, you can unlock other cars. Oh, the places you’ll go in this big-eyed, bouncing yellow school bus…
Come Along for a Fun Learning Journey
To start, choose which mode you’d like to try: Preschool, Beginner, Intermediate, Advanced, or Expert. As you progress through each mode, you’ll play with longer words, starting with one and two-letter words in Preschool to six-letter words in Expert. Within each mode there are nine stages, many of which you’ll have to unlock. So let’s get going!
If this is your first time behind the wheel, there is no need to worry — it’s intuitive and easy even for the littlest learners. Just rotate your mobile device like a steering wheel to navigate your way down the scenic road. You can choose to listen to music or just the sound of your wheels. Most importantly, watch out for the letters!
Learning Letters, Words, and Spelling
As you roll along, big block letters appear before you on the road. Aim your bus toward these letters and when you make contact with them, you’ll hear the letter pronounced. When you gather all the letters to spell a word, you’ll hear the word pronounced and you are presented with a card showing the word along with an illustration. Track how many words you have gathered as the cards pile up.
