4.0 out of 5 stars Living it up in Vegas, 17 Oct 2002
What sort of a publisher would give a man a $50,000 advance, knowing full well that he was going to go and spend a month in Vegas with it? A very trusting one, I suppose, or a stupid one. The book doesn't sound all that great, I mean, what's fun about gambling in Vegas for a month (besides the free beer and numerous shows/women), surely it would get boring after a week. Well, that may be the case, but in this book is an interesting insight to the way in which Vegas works, and the sort of money you need to be gambling in order to start getting room upgrades and free things. It also gives an interesting insight to the mind of a small time gambler who manages to pick up the bug quite easily, eventually seeming to become hooked on some card game played mostly Japanese people (the name of which escapes me at the moment). If you've been to Vegas and experienced the bright lights then its a fantastic book, and the author stays in most of the major hotels on the strip so you can bet your bottom dollar that if you've been there, he's been there. Well worth a read.

An excellent well written book that very cleary paints a picture
of what it's like to be a high roller in Vegas.
Having visited Las Vegas many times I could almost see myself there at the tables with him.
A very enjoyable read

5.0 out of 5 stars Non-stop thrills in Vegas, 9 July 2011
What a great premise. Instead of writing a book, the writer takes his advance and decides to gamble it away piece by piece staying in different hotels and having different adventures along the way in Las Vegas. Simple idea and very well written.
