The Stu Ungar story is engaging and compelling from the get-go. I will look for other books read by Joe Barrett - he did an amazing job. Surprisingly the callous, cliched-heart of Vegas is shattered when you hear of players and friends who tried to help Stu Ungar. Over and over it's a desperate emotional roller coaster - the life of a gifted man who went through one bad beat after another. In substance and tragedy It's Goodfellas meets Casino, meets Raging Bull.
well written and full of great quotes - "There's only one thing worse than a boy who hates a girl...A boy who loves a girl" Read by Allan Corduner in a most playful, dramatic, and entertaining tone the listener will not be disappointed. This Markus Zusak can write.... This reviewer only wishes for more.
