Winner Takes All - WYNN, HET, MGM
If you aren't aware, Christina Binkley's new book Winner Takes All: Steve Wynn, Kirk Kerkorian, Gary Loveman, and the Race to Own Las Vegas came out the other day. I just started plowing through it last night and judging from the first 50 pages or so, this is a book for the ages if you have any interest whatsoever in the business end of casinos and the icons who run the show.
Author Christina Binkley worked on the book for about two years, after covering Las Vegas for the Wall Street Journal for ten years previously. The book is filled with interviews with the people who were there - Lanni, Wynn, Murren, Kerkorian, Loveman and their many lieutenants and henchmen. This really is priceless information and I urge you all to pick up a copy, stat.
