    The stories in this book are amazing, but the storytelling is awful.Each chapter focuses on one person or resort which makes for a very choppy book because there is so much interplay between the characters A better organization would have been chronological so the reader could follow the interaction and one upsmanship that made the history of Vegas so interesting.There s also a lot of assumptions made about familiarity with casino lingo and the mob For example, when a new mob family is mention The stories in this book are amazing, but the storytelling is awful.Each chapter focuses on one person or resort which makes for a very choppy book because there is so much interplay between the characters A better organization would have been chronological so the reader could follow the interaction and one upsmanship that made the history of Vegas so interesting.There s also a lot of assumptions made about familiarity with casino lingo and the mob For example, when a new mob family is mentioned I have no idea if they are a big player, an up and coming group, or just a footnote Again, telling the story as a story rather than a jumbled mess of events would have helped.I really wanted to like this book but in the end I got tired of the repetition, assumptions, and lack of continuity

    Good book and well researched It s written in short chapters that covers a lot of ground As a result, you aren t going to get a whole lot of detail on any individual or any particular situation Worth reading, and the bibliography gives a decent roadmap if you want to dive deeper.

    While I find the topic interesting, I found the writing bad.
