    Story
    (28)

    In the spring of 2000, Harper's magazine sent James McManus to Las Vegas to cover the World Series of Poker. But when McManus sets foot in town, the lure of the tables is too strong: he proceeds to risk his entire Harper's advance in a long-shot attempt to play in the tournament himself. Only with actual table experience (he tells his skeptical wife) can he capture the hair-raising subtleties of poker that determines the world champion.

    Dave G. says: "Ted Binion, World Series of Poker, Strippers"
    "Positively Fifth Street Murderers"
    Overall

    I really enjoyed this book and am glad to give it four stars. I would have liked the author to have made the book longer by putting in chapters inbetween the main story's plot of more of the history of gambling and Vegas. Very interesting, informative and entertaining.

    We all want to have our message heard. In Bang! Linda Kaplan Thaler and Robin Koval tell us how. They and their talented colleagues are the brains behind a host of memorable and highly successful ads, from the enormously successful AFLAC duck to the irresistibly sentimental "Kodak moment" to Herbal Essences' outrageous "Totally Organic Experience." Kaplan Thaler and Koval offer savvy advice and proven strategies for getting out a loud, clear, attention-grabbing message about any product or service.

    "Exciting"
    Overall

    I found the book most entertaining and a great source of fun to talk about to my patients. Most have no idea of the behind the scenes of
    a commercial, just as I had no concept of the process. People love to hear about things they know about ie commercials but don't really. Anyway, I enjoyed it and would suggest it to anyone with an entreprenurial personality.
