“A book on Vegas that is not a tourist guide is still a novelty … So far, the most significant books on Vegas have been overwhelmingly those that try to sort the myth from the reality. Here are the ones you should know about… “Casino-ology by Bill Zender (Huntington Press, 2008)

How many hands should a good dealer play in an hour? How do you analyze a customer’s play? How do you turn around a distressed casino? Bill Zender examines these questions in this remarkable book that sees Vegas through the eyes of the house … an essential glimpse behind the cash cage at the heart of the Strip.”
