The pictures alone are worth the price of admission- the writing a mix of both what made Vegas Vegas in the 1970s & today.
I would have given this four stars just for the photos.
This book is so dated. It is amazing how dated it is. The gambling, the skyline, the show girls, the prostitutes, all dated.

It was a quick read, because the gist of the book is anecdotes.
