"A whiz-bang book…call it pop sociology, gonzo journalism, or social criticism: It’s all good fun…[Martinez] is a sharp and witty observer…he has a delicious sense of irony."
– Kirkus Reviews
"A quality package tour through [the] new Las Vegas…Martinez is a thorough reporter and a wittily personable cicerone."
– The Boston Globe
"Entertaining–A funny and perceptive account."
– The New York Book Review
