Sin City. Bright lights, high stakes, no sleep. Home to some of the world's grandest, flashiest, and most lucrative casino resorts, Las Vegas' multitude of attractions draws some forty million tourists from around the world every year. But Vegas hasn't always been booming at the level it is today. This newest influx is largely a result of three competing business moguls--and their strategic and creative genius in the race to own Vegas. Meet Kirk Kerkorian, Steve Wynn, and Dr. Gary Loveman, men who couldn't be more different from one another, yet share the same tunnel-vision determination to conquer the city that feeds the world's fantasies.
No longer just a go-to city for gambling, as a result of Kerkorian, Wynn, and Loveman working to reach the top--and to top one another--Las Vegas is now home to restaurants run by some of the world's top chefs, concert and entertainment venues headlined by Hollywood's biggest stars, art galleries featuring some of the world's most valuable pieces, and meta-resorts boasting the largest and most expansive casinos, spas, and more.
Having had personal access to these men, Wall Street Journal reporter Christina Binkley gives us a never-before-seen up close look at the trio of tycoons whose high-stakes gambles made Sin City soar.
Sharp, insightful and revealing, this is the gripping story of how billions of dollars and the unparalleled drive for power made the personal visions of three moguls evolve from dreams to larger-than-life reality.About the Author :
