Al W. Moe was born in Cincinnati, Ohio and introduced to the casinos of Nevada at the age of eleven. At the time he had never seen such an amazing array of sights, sounds, and exciting games. Little has change since that first introduction.
Moe is the author of Nevada's Golden Age of Gambling" and "The Roots of Reno." He has written for Gambling Times/Poker Player, Pokernews.com and Casino and Gaming Chips Magazine. His love for casinos and the history of gambling are only exceeded by the thrill he gets learning new casino games and his desire to teach new players how to get the most for their money at the casino.

This is a terrific book. The author tells so many stories about casinos in Las Vegas - about the Mob, Bugsy Siegel, Meyer Lansky, and a lot more. Moe tells about the building of the Flamingo, Sahara, El Cortez, Dunes, Hacienda, Stardust, Harrah's, Harold's Club, Cal Neva and plenty of others.
The writing is good, steady, and enjoyable. Nonfiction without feeling like you're reading a text book!
