Super Casino: Inside the “New” Las Vegas is a well written and engaging look at the tantalizing town that refuses to be held back. Part historical, and part in insider’s look at casino life through the Luxor, the reader is a fly on the wall for the author’s first hand interactions with a casino boss, a showgirl, a security guard, and more of Vegas’s inhabitants. From corportate casinos to the homeless, you’ll see how engrained this city is with the dollar. I dare you to try and put it down. The author, Pete Earley, is a former reporter for the Washington Post and has written several other books including, The Hot House : Life Inside Leavenworth Prison and Lethal Secrets.
