    Big Julie of Vegas about the early days of junkets run by Julie Weintraub. My college roommate’s grandfather was one of the players included so it holds special sentimental value to me.

    Much of the info is outdated but I still listen to it before a vegas trip as I drive to work as it is still enjoyable. Downloaded it from audible.

    I recently read: Fly on the Wall: Recollections of Las Vegas' Good Old, Bad Old Days, by Dick Odessky.

    It's basically an autobiography of his 40 years of working in Las Vegas as a reporter, and also as a publicist for casinos. It first came out in 1999, and later in 2010, so it is a little dated, but is still a good first hand account of the goings on in the development of Las Vegas.
