Overview

We Were Wiseguys and Didn't Know It by Scott Schettler presents a rare and unprecedented history of the early days of "old Las Vegas" and the sports betting luminaries who set the standards and culture in the evolution of sports betting in Las Vegas. This is not a dry history lesson, but rather author Schettler has drawn multiple portraits of key players who shaped the framework and foundation of one of Las Vegas's biggest draws. Schettler has set the record straight about what really happened in the glory days of Las Vegas sports betting, and he has done so not as an academic, but as an insider. Personal experience and hands on accounts tell the stories about a time that will never come again, and of a place even Hollywood could not reproduce. Written in easy and accessible prose, We Were Wiseguys and Didn't Know It will educate and entertain, while it serves as witness to little known (if shadowy) characters of Las Vegas gambling history.
