Oh how I love Rick Lax's books...this one is just the latest in a series of well-written, smart, humorous, and just flat-out cool books. I am somewhat (see: extremely) obsessed with Vegas, so of course I went bananas when I read this book--it just has so many random fun facts/stories about Vegas--things you would probably never know otherwise. You will feel as though you are right there with him as he travels through the world of Vegas attempting(or not) to make sense of it all. There are also a ton of great color pictures to go along with the stories. When I can't travel to Vegas, I pick up a Rick Lax book b/c it's the next best thing.

I like Tucker Max as an author, and this is a pale imitation of his books. Didn't find myself wanting to read a story, then go on to the next, and the next. I got 3/4 of the way through it and stopped reading it all together. Not horribly written, just didn't hold my interest. YMMV
