About the Author
Top Customer Reviews
There are many other books about Vegas and the mafia that are much better. As an avid reader, who is especially interested in this subject, I can honestly say this is one of the worst books I've ever read on any subject. Don't waste your time or money on this one.
While I found this book very informative and factual, it is rather repetitive at times and I found myself asking, "didn't I just read that?" It is apparent in some sections that the information is fairly scrambled and does not flow.
This book is more or less a summary of the days when the mob ran Vegas, as opposed to a detailed account of this era.
Of note, even though the book contains 240 pages, the font is somewhat larger than most books and can be read in a matter of hours.
Overall, I enjoyed reading this book and would recommend it to anyone who is after a brief run down on the mob and the days they ran Vegas.
