LAS VEGAS (CelebrityAccess MediaWire) — Dig it cats and kittens – Sin City scribbler Christina Binkley has put pen to paper with the inside scoop on a trio of titanic tycoons battling for all the stakes.
The book, called "Winner Takes All: Steve Wynn, Kirk Kerkorian, Gary Loveman, and the Race to Own Las Vegas" hit the store shelves on March 4th and promises to be an eye-opening, hair raising look behind the curtains in lush desert resort destination.
Binkley, a willful writer for the Wall Street Journal dishes dirt on the dubious and dark deals behind the power struggles that make up the map of the gambling mecca today culled from her years covering the beat.
Item: A one-way conveyor belt, designed to pull visitors away from a competing casino.
Item: The book digs deep on Wynn's lavish and as some daresay profligate spending on jet setting style, including his $7.3 million sculpture, crafted by superlative sculptor Alberto Giacometti and in current employ as a door jamb.
While some writers have criticized the book for focusing on the wizard-like Wynn and for "murky" chronologies, the book is still filled with tantalizing tidbits, the book is still a must-read for anyone who is curious about how Las Vegas turned from a junket-joint to a resort hotspot. And remember cats and kittens, its all off the record, on the QT, and very hush-hush. – CelebrityAccess Staff Writers
