My Week at the Blue Angel
A savage journey to the heart of Hunter S. Thompson's Las Vegas, with the Good Doctor as tour guide. A Lord-of-the-Rings-like adventure in the city's underground flood channels. A seven-day stay at a seedy motel on East Fremont Street. The stories in My Week at the Blue Angel aren't about Steve Wynn, Cirque de Soleil, or how to play poker and they aren't set in Caesar's Palace, XS Nightclub, or a 2,000-seat showroom. They're about prostitutes, ex-cons, and the homeless and they're set under Caesar's Palace and in trailer parks and weekly motels.In this creative nonfiction collection, Matthew O'Brien--author of Beneath the Neon: Life and Death in the Tunnels of Las Vegas--and veteran photographer Bill Hughes show a side of the city rarely seen. A side beyond the neon lights, themed facades, and motel-room doors. A side of Las Vegas many locals and visitors are curious about but few ever explore.

Bill Zender’s Casino-ology took the art of casino management to new levels by introducing superior mathematical concepts to improve efficiencies within a casino operation. But after struggling through one of the worst financial periods in history, the world has changed. It’s imperative that casino managers be reactive to evolving markets and Casino-ology 2 addresses all the issues relevant to a challenging gaming environment.

Among the topics covered are the effects of buy-in churn on hold percentage; the side-bet explosion; effective dealer scheduling; banking games in California; money lending and the Asian customer; the merits of using pre-shuffled playing cards, as well as matchplay and promotional-chip program; the cell-phone and card-counter conundrum; and an updated look at the player-error rate in blackjack.
