Unfairly young/talented author Kevin Roose wrote one of the best books of 2009--this according to Barnes & Noble and Las Vegas Weekly. It's called, "The Unlikely Disciple" and it's about the author's time at the ultra-religious Liberty University.
Well, here's what Mr. Roose had to say about my upcoming book, Fool Me Once:
"Rick Lax embedded himself with Vegas's most notorious magicians, call girls, and wheeler-dealers and emerged with a funny and fascinating cautionary tale for the rest of us. Anyone who's ever been scammed, bluffed, or lied to should read Fool Me Once."
Thanks for the kind words, Kevin!
My review of Neil Strauss's EMERGENCY comes out in LVW next...and on deck is this book: The Unlikely Disciple. This book and Russell Brand's "My Booky Wook" are my 2009 favorites. But you'll have to wait a few more weeks to find out why...
