"Enlightenment Now: The Case for Reason, Science, Humanism, and Progress"
Is the world really falling apart? Is the ideal of progress obsolete? Cognitive scientist and public intellectual Steven Pinker urges us to step back from the gory headlines and prophecies of doom, and instead, follow the data: In seventy-five jaw-dropping graphs, Pinker shows that life, health, prosperity, safety, peace, knowledge, and happiness are on the rise.

Perhaps unintentionally, but with great honesty, his book reveals that resort-clogged Strip is a bit played out at this time. Every casino, in their rush to outdo each other, is losing the ground by which they differentiate themselves and attract a neat or distinct crowd. Downtown, in turn, has made a point of attracting particular crowds, but unfortunately, can't seem to compete with the amenities of the big casinos yet. Perhaps they won't try, preferring instead to decide for themselves what Downtown Vegas Gambling is going to look like. That said this book really has encouraged me to rethink my stance on several Strip Casinos and check them out with new eyes.
While I do think that there are a lot of ways to do Vegas 'right', and you have to figure out what works for you, Tim Dressen's approach (most bang for TIME, not buck) seems like it would be easy to adapt into other traveling styles. His version (the "jackpot" section of reviews) of what is great might just be the information you need to know to run away from a casino, event or show. Likewise, his "tilt" section might be full of goodies that make you want to try something. So take his version of good and bad with a grain of salt.
If you are going to make gambling the focus of your Vegas trip, you'll need an entirely different guidebook. His gambling section is more about ambiance, free drinks and overall enjoyment of the casino -- all very valid concerns, but not the concerns the consummate gambler would have.
Great book. Very informative. Tim Dressen has a very humorous and entertaining writing style. I loved some of his rants. While not a comedian, Tim was so funny in this book that I had the feeling that I was reading an Adam Carolla book. That is high praise from me.
After reading the book, all I can think about is my next trip to Las Vegas. There are so many places that I want to visit and so many restaurants and bars that I want to try.
The book is an excellent compliment to the weekly podcast.
