Viva Cal Neva!

Front Cover
AuthorHouse, 2010 - Fiction - 444 pages
0 Reviews
The book takes a 32 year old real estate maven from Florida, at his employer's behest, to be a partner in a little casino in Nevada. From the beginning of the escapade, there are twists and turns as our hero finds out the ways of the world of gambling and chicanery. IF it was easy, anybody could do it. There is no completion to the tale, until the very last page of some 440 pages. Many of the persons involved in the plot are real people working under pseudonyms in the book. Many things happened in the book, exactly as they happened in real life - except - the tale is fiction. Any names or similarities with real people - living or dead - are purely coincidental.

About the author (2010)

The author is a graduate of the University of Nebraska with a BSc in Business and Economics and a BA in English and History; also an MA in Psychology from California Coast University. The author's business career at JC Penney, Procter & Gamble and Massachusetts Mutual led him into entrepreneurship, including being one of the purchasers - and the hands on manager - of the Cal Neva Lodge in Lake Tahoe, Nevada and California (the bar in California - the Casino in Nevada) and was the second purchaser after the first purchaser bought the Cal Neva Lodge from Frank Sinatra after Sinatra's gaming license was revoked. At this time, the author met many of the owners and managers of Las Vegas casinos, who took him under their arms and taught him the gambling side of life.
