The print is really big (no need for a special "large-print" version), the margins are generous, and there are a number of blank pages. It's still barely big enough to be bound as a trade paperback, rather than a pamphlet. I didn't even bother reading it when it first arrived, being disappointed at this paltry effort by someone who has an energetic radio style, and is strong in public appearances.
So why not a 1 star review?
What there is here is really pretty good. It is a little too filtered and truncated, but there is the germ of a good book here. You do get a little insight into the lives of the ladies you see pushing drinks in the casinos. And, there is some real hard-earned wisdom dished out too.
Too bad Heidi Harris didn't keep this to herself and use it as the concept for a REAL book, using a ghost writer if necessary to translate her years of experience in one of life's tougher corners into something deeper and more revealing. There is a promised "sequel", which could, I suppose, be that book. If it fulfills the promise of this little "teaser", I hope this version won't prejudice the public against giving it a serious look.
Worth reading? Definitely yes, if you've got 20 minutes (tops). Worth the price? Not really - just too little here.
I think the one best tidbit in the whole book is the statement that "Street smarts beat book smarts every time"!
It's a fun read. Buy it now, and leave it out on your coffee table.

Disappointed. Thought it would be longer and more insightful. Pretty basic stuff.Published 9 months ago by Gayle Prince
I loved the book. It was fun to read and had executed what it needed to. I didn't need to read 200 pages of what could be concisely said with such wit. A must buy!!!Published on April 1, 2012 by DD
Not worth the paper it's printed on. Nothing interesting or even funny. Banal. Trite. Useless. Wish it was thicker then at least I could have gotten a decent doorstop out of it. Read morePublished on July 20, 2011 by Alfonso Wentworth
I listen to Heidi Harris just about every morning. She could have written a lot more and wish she would have. Read morePublished on April 22, 2011 by mesham
