Best Book on Vegas for guys period Mar 22, 2007
I just got back from my first trip to vegas and this book guided me every step of the way. From the best place to stay or eat to the top strip clubs and bars it covers it all in a very unique set up compared to all other travel guides. I wanna keep it simple so if your a guy who is going to vegas to for a "guys weekend" this book will greatly improve you trip!
Not just for men! May 23, 2006
While this book definately isn't for families it can be applied to travelers other than just men. I just bought this book (I'm a 32 year old married woman)and found some great advice that can apply to anyone that is looking to let loose and have some fun.
I am soon traveling to Vegas with my husband and two girlfriends. The information on the bars and clubs was extremely helpful. We also plan to hit a strip club while there and this book helped us decide. While I've been to several local strip clubs, I have never been to one in a big city and it outlines some of the basics that are different than what I'm used to.
I have been to Vegas 4 other times in the past couple years, but this will be my first trip that is completely social. This will be an exceptional tool to have.
Great book, a must for Vegas May 11, 2006
Hiram Norman and Dave DeMontmollin you wrote a great book.
This book is a must for a guy's weekend in Vegas. Plan your weekend in order that you make the most out of your stay in Vegas.
These guys tell you where to stay, where to go, how to meet & have a great time in Vegas.
Very insightful, very funny, very informative.
Interesting and Useful...But Not For Everyone Apr 27, 2006
If you are a guy, and are a guy who is only in Vegas for one thing, women, you will enjoy this book. Whether you are a bachelor, a soon-to-be-married gentleman, or a "Night at the Roxbury" woman hound, you will do just fine with this, as it is just what you need. I do mean, need. I can think of a guy I used to work with who considers himself "all that" and would go to Vegas JUST for the ladies and the clubs. I, on the other hand, enjoy ALL facets of the city. While I love to read anything informative, this book teaches you things such as how to manage your money. Uh, watch the Travel Channel's shows on Vegas. It teaches you how to gamble. Again, refer to the TC or play in those online rooms. Those are both free. Finally, the book actually teaches someone, or tries to do this, how to eat a steak and how to enjoy a buffet. So, I guess this is a book notorious for the obvious. Or, maybe the ideal clientel has never experienced many elements of life. I know I say this as someone who has lived just south of Vegas for a year, and I have visited both Laughlin and Vegas many times, but I am sorry. This book is worth nothing more than a read at B'n'N or Borders. And trust me, you won't need more than an hour, as a quick skim is all that is needed.
My one positive note, though, is that, even though I laughed at both the topics in this book and at those who probably think this literature really is the answer to finding a great time in this city, the information about hotels is truly useful. I was indeed happy that I read that section because I followed DeMontmollin's advice and chose a room at the Flamingo. Upon arriving at my hotel, I quickly understood his advice that this hotel was for the cultured and not for the "clubber," I was pleasantly surprised. This book offers a nice explanation of each "type" of hotel, as does it succeed in locating where you want to go with what you will need to expect to travel (walk or cab) to get there.
With a "3," I offer a mixed review. Very good at times, unforgetable at others. If you find this book for cheap on this site, less than three dollar, it will be worth the read. Otherwise, just use the three dollars in gas and drive to one of the main bookstores. Bring a notebook, and set aside one hour to jot down key ideas. Heck, just place what you want (phone numbers, ket notes) in your cell. Then, when you get to Vegas, you won't have to worry about looking like a tourist or an obvious dud. Yes, dud.
Little Black Book Mar 22, 2006
Overall the book was ok. Honestly I was expecting a bit more from a so called "Vegas Insider". It did have a few helpful tips, and the rating systems for the hotels and Gentleman's Clubs were helpful in selecting where to stay and what to do. I would not pay more than $10 for it again, and it should be updated yearly, if for no other reason than things change so often in Vegas.
