    " Interesting book, but expect more after the reviews I read "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Lisa | 4/28/2013

    " I liked the first half of this book better than the second. You have to read it for the story, not the writing - the writing reminded me of someone just telling me their story, without edits, without perfecting their grammar, and over-repetitive use of some phrases and adjectives. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Daniel Humphries | 4/18/2013

    " Fun read about our favorite casino/hotel in Vegas. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Noah | 1/13/2013

    " I thought an account of what it's like to suddenly get rich and own a casino would be interesting. I was wrong. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Javier Santillan | 6/17/2012

    " One of the best books about Vegas! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Elizabeth | 3/12/2012

    " This book was really engaging. Half of it was about the two friends and their business booking Vegas hotel rooms and how they sold that and it became Expedia and became multi-millionaires and THAT allowed them to buy a Vegas casino. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Bill | 12/26/2011

    " Something a bit different, just a quick light story that was pretty cool about two guys striking it big in Vegas as businessmen. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Charles McGonigal | 10/19/2011

    " Fun flight through Vegas, although obviously out to tell their side of the story. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Dan | 9/9/2011

    " Double or Nothing is a very exciting and interesting read. I found myself loving to flip the pages and see what Mr. Royalty (creator of GTA???) was doing next, or finding out what wisdom Steve Wynn would bring Tim and Tom. It is a fun read, and I encourage all to read this book! "
