I thought the "myths" section in the beginning was particularly well done. Also, throughout the book they have little insets titled, "Classic Vegas Mistake." These alone would be helpful for someone who has never been. I learned some of these the hard way over the years.
As mentioned in other reviews, the book will not be of any help to other types of visitors (couples, families, etc..). Guys who are regular visitors to sin city probably won't find much new either, but it's an easy read and I found myself smiling in agreement often.
I am soon traveling to Vegas with my husband and two girlfriends. The information on the bars and clubs was extremely helpful. We also plan to hit a strip club while there and this book helped us decide. While I've been to several local strip clubs, I have never been to one in a big city and it outlines some of the basics that are different than what I'm used to.
I have been to Vegas 4 other times in the past couple years, but this will be my first trip that is completely social. This will be an exceptional tool to have.
The book also includes advice on finding the best bars in town, where to eat like a king, where to gamble and how to gamble smart, and how to get around in the city. Believe me; if you've ever taken a cab ride in Las Vegas, you know what I'm talking about. Find out in advance how to get around before you arrive. It could save you time and money. The book also covers the most important topic, which is, "Where should you stay in Vegas?". You'd be surprised to find out how important this can be. The book explains why.
Bottom line, I frequent Vegas quite often, even lived there for a summer in 2003. This book reveals quite a bit of Vegas 'Behind the Scenes' information I never knew about. You'll find no hype or fluff here. Just helpful tips and useful advice on making the most of your trip to Vegas. This is definitely good reading material for those looking to 'Score Big' in Sin City!
Living here in Vegas, I started using this book by taking it with us on the Strip. We scored with a couple of chicks on that first day we used it. Everyone I show it to naturally thinks it's a helpful book. Now that I have read it from cover to cover, I'm that much more prepared.
I also find the companion website, blog, and radio show to be very helpful, as they pick up where the book leaves off.
I highly recommend this book to anyone traveling to Vegas or living in Vegas. Soon they will also come out with the ladies' version and other emanations.
Some of the pointers on gambling are old news to anyone who is familiar with casino gambling anywhere (limits go up at night, etc). Not all of the advice is going to work for every group of guys, but it should work well for a group of typical guys.
Some of the other advice makes sense when you think about it, but you'd likely never think about it until you read it in this book (the difference between bars and night clubs).
