Review by: db23 on Aug. 11, 2011 :
Although this is a pretty interesting look at the history of Vegas, the formatting is strange with a mix of bold and normal text for no obvious reason (at least in the Kindle version) and overall it feels a little disjointed as one story doesn't necessarily lead into the next. Still worth a read despite those problems.
