Reviews - What do customers think about Sun, Sin And Suburbia: An Essential History Of Modern Las Vegas?

Overall, a good read  May 17, 2008
I purchased this book on my last trip to Las Vegas and found it be well researched, factual and informative.

I preferred the first half of the book, which provided a brief run down of the casinos, both on and off the strip, to the second half, which detailed the development of the communities within and around Las Vegas. While I found the chapters on Summerlin, Henderson and North Las Vegas interesting, I feel that they could have been condensed into one chapter and more information provided on the history of the casinos, particularly the ones that have been imploded to make way for the new resorts.

Overall, I found this book to be a good read and recommend it to anyone who would like to know more about Las Vegas other than just the strip casinos.
Excellent and well researched  Apr 25, 2006
Geoff Schumacher's "Sun,Sin,Suburbia" is a well written book that takes a look into the history of Las Vegas over the last twenty years. Written with a historians attention to detail, "Sun, Sin, Suburbia" is also a very fun read for any who are interested in Las Vegas and the rise and domination of corporations lead by men like Steve Wynn.
Sun, Sin, & Suburbia - Intelligent and Fascinating  Jan 27, 2005
Schumacher has packed his account of Las Vegas full of insightful and interesting facts that other books about Las Vegas often lack. He demonstrates his intelligent, talented prose in providing a balanced perspective of the more familiar side of Las Vegas, the casino industry, while offering inside information on the development of southern Nevada, home to more than 1.6 million people. The book is well organized, and can be read in whole, or by choosing one of eleven chapters that each independently address a specific topic of Las Vegas history and its future. Those of us who live here will find useful insight on people and places we encounter regularly, as well as enlightening historical information on the people who came before us. Non-residents will gain fascinating and insightful facts beyond what is commonly known about Las Vegas. It's a great read.
Good but lacking  Jan 18, 2005
Sun, Sin and Suburbia is an interesting, well-written and impeccably researched volume. As a non-Las Vegan I would have liked to read more about the Mob; the Culinary Union's struggles; Howard Hughes and Steve Wynn, and less about residential communities. Whilst the book added to my knowledge of Sin City, it fell short of its promise to be "An Essential History of Modern Las Vegas".
