Description
Wall Street Journal columnist Christina Brinkley explores how Wynn, Kerkorian and Lovemann are building a bigger, better Las Vegas and how their influence is spreading beyond the borders of the city. Peppered with celebrity cameos, this sharp, fast-paced narrative tells the story of how billions of dollars - and an unparalleled drive for power - took three men's visions for Vegas from mere dreams to a spectacularly-lit reality.
