How would you like to save $100 or a £100 over the next 30 days? If you have an income and regular outgoings such as food, transport, and entertainment, this guide just might be for you.... The 15 ideas in this book are all tried and tested and within your reach, but listening to this book alone won´t save you any money. If you just have to have Heinz baked beans and no other, then the section on grocery shopping won´t help you. If you´re just too lazy to write a letter to cancel a subscription, maybe this book is not for you after all. Saving money is not passive - you have to do something, and often it will feel like hard work because most of it is about changing habits. This takes us outside of our comfort zone, and let´s face it, that´s always going to be uncomfortable. So if you could really do with saving $100 or £100 in the next 30 days, and you´re not going to cry like a baby because you didn´t get your Lucky Charms for breakfast and you think you just might survive cancelling your subscription to a magazine that you never read anyway, then listen on.... 1.

The high-stakes battle between two casino titans over the Las Vegas of the East Coast. It´s all quiet now on the eastern front of the American gaming industry - Atlantic City, New Jersey - but for five chaotic years, real estate developer Richard ´´Skip´´ Bronson was at the white-hot center of a titanic clash of money and power that transformed Atlantic City from a struggling day-tripper place with buses in and out to a born again destination drawing tourists from New York, Philadelphia, and other major cities along the eastern seaboard. From 1995 to 2000, two of the world´s best-known companies - Mirage Resorts and Trump Resorts - run by two of the most flamboyant businessmen of our time, fought a bare-knuckled, high-stakes battle over a prime piece of real estate in one of America´s most famous resort towns. No money was spared, no punch was pulled, no invective went unhurled in The War at the Shore. Now Bronson, who was a member of the board of directors of Mirage and president of New City Development Company, the Mirage subsidiary whose primary purpose was to build a top-level new casino and hotel complex in Atlantic City, tells the inside story of this epic struggle. Along the way, Bronson weaves in fascinating and inspiring anecdotes from his complicated past: A product of a fractured family and city-owned housing project in Hartford, Connecticut; former paperboy, spelling bee champion yet college dropout; and prolific developer of shopping centers and office buildings-including CityPlace, Connecticut´s tallest skyscraper-Bronson embodies the self-made business success story. Gripping from beginning to end, The War at the Shore is a rare up-close look at the world of casino development and the essential modern chapter in the history of America´s ´´Boardwalk Empire´´. 1.
