Amazon Review of The King of Casinos: I LOVE THIS BOOK!

"I had the great good luck to meet Andy Martello just before he released the book - I happily bought a copy and it kept me company on road trips, camping trips, and general shenanigan related adventures. Reading the book is like having Andy right there with you - you get to live the story together!"

Amazon Review of The King of Casinos: I highly recommend this book to anyone.

"This book spins a great story about a sadly overlooked part of Nevada gaming history. The author tells the story like you are sitting at home with him, having a drink and a cigar with him on the back deck. Very entertaining. And the pictures...remarkable all the things that the author has been able to dig up during his eight years of research. I highly recommend this book to anyone, not just history buffs."

Amazon Review for The King of Casinos: You feel like you're a part of that history.

"This book is well written and takes you back to the hay day of gambling in the desert and the allure of sex and money. This is a great story about the American dream, how an ordinary man lives an extra-ordinary life. Told in a way that makes you feel like you are apart of that history."
