Las Vegas, NV, November 14, 2011 --(PR.com
)-- Roger Wagner announced today the release of No Work and All Play, Audacious Chronicles of a Casino Boss, published by Outskirts Press. A forty-five year veteran casino boss of the gaming and hotel management industry, Wagner offers a solid primer from the lowest to the highest levels of casino hospitality positions while also entertaining his readers with his anecdotes about the forgotten and the famous of this fascinating world.
Wagner is able to weave his own experiences with gaming industry legends such as Donald Trump, Mickey Mantle and Jack Binion into as thorough an overview of the gaming industry as a reader could hope to find. Whether taking stock of this unique landscape for ones’ own career enhancement or reading these remarkable tales just for one’s own amusement, readers will learn from the best in the seven sections of this book which divide the details of the casino industry into its lowest to its highest positions.
Wagner himself is the quintessential “been there, done that” man of the industry. From his early, Rat Pack days at the Dunes and the Sands in Las Vegas through the management of Donald Trump’s Castle Casino in Atlantic City to his final-career days as President of Jack Binion’s Horseshoe Gaming Holding Corporation, Wagner has held the helm in virtually all aspects of the casino gaming industry.
Not that it was ever “work” for him, though. “I never worked a day in my forty-five years in the casino business,” writes Wagner. “It was all fun and games.” That buoyant attitude and playful spirit comes through in page after page of No Work and All Play, and for anyone still searching for an entertaining career, Wagner makes a strong case for considering the gaming industry.
He also provides the essential blueprint for how to be successful in this remarkable business.
No Work and All Play is available on-line in paperback through Amazon and Barnes and Noble and at www.outskirtspress.com/bookstore for a maximum trade discount in quantities of ten or more.
Format: 6 x 9 paperback cream ISBN: 1-978-4327-7724-1 SRP: $21.95
