Reviews

"Carefully researched and eye-opening." --Arlie Russell Hochschild, The New York Times Book Review

"Probing . . . There's a lesson about developing our coastlines to be learned from Gaul's reporting, but it's not one that everyone is ready to hear." --Reid Singer, Outside

"Punchy . . . Mixing breezy storytelling with the nitty-gritty details of inside-politicking, Gaul demonstrates how state and federal agencies have tried, but failed, to reign in developers and decelerate coastal development." --Publishers Weekly
