I love history & after visiting Las Vegas last week, I was really interested in this book. Unfortunately, I am left confused trying to piece together this choppy timeline. On one page someone dies, next page they're alive, then dead again. Too much time spent flipping back, to figure out year b/c someone is suddenly alive again. Not what I was expecting......

This is a really bad "memoir"

This was a total mess. Author kept repeating stories and the time schedule was non existent. If there was some chronologic order it would have been readable.

As a guy who grew up in Nj and was also fortunate enough to visitVegas a lot in the early to mid 80's, this book brings bavk so many grest memories from that period plus somuch grest info on the creation running of Vegas back in the early part of the cenrury. I recommend rhis book highly. I was hesrtbroken when the corporations and Disney destroyed Vegas like the have dedtroyed Times Square in NYC.. read this book and see how fun the world once was

Long on anecdotes, short on narrative continuity. If you are looking for a collection of interesting stories, this is a book for you. If you're looking for more of a historical narrative, look elsewhere.

So many times I have heard the phrase-that would never have happened 'when the mob ran Vegas'that the book jumped out at me.This is a fast and easy read full of history of more than Vegas.You get a feeling of just how corrupt politics were and are. Names were named that made me go "Oh my God!".There is the Hollywood conection and so much more.

This book by Mr. Fischer is an excellent rendering of what Las Vegas was before big business took over the strip. I couldn't put it down. It was engrossing, thought provoking and made me want to learn more. Thanks Mr. Fischer!

I enjoyed this audiobook -- I got the book last year, but this was way, way, way better! I thoroughly enjoyed listening. I could listen to a whole story running errands -- it's not like you listen to part of it and then have to remember what was going on... each story is a separate story. I also enjoyed the authors voice and his laugh. I felt like he was sitting there telling me the stories.

An incredible collection of mob stories from early Vegas. Author has a charming, funny writing style. My husband loved the book too. We're buying copies for all our friends who go to Vegas once a year and never knew the real 'inside' stories behind the casinos and the city.
