Summaries and Reviews
Amazon.com description: Product Description: Looking for a travel guide that goes where other guides fear to tread? One that rides roughshod over ad-copy puffery to smartly deliver the real scoop on a destination's sites and attractions? One that dares to be honest, hip, and fun? Look no more. Frommer's Irreverent Travel Guides are wickedly irreverent, unabashedly honest, and downright hilarious, and provide an insider's perspective on which attractions are overrated tourist traps and which are the secret gems that locals love. You'll get the lowdown on restaurants, lodging, and shopping, and even find out what the locals think of you. "Like being taken around by a savvy local," said the New York Times. "Hipper and savvier than other guides," concurred Diversion magazine. Never shy about confronting the issues, the Irreverents are guides to real travel in the real world.

Irreverence is Las Vegas's stock and trade. Still, you won't find a more hilariously entertaining and irreverent look at this over-the-top city than that the one in Frommer's Irreverent Guide to Las Vegas. Discover statuary that doubles as slot machines, have a slice at Wayne Newton's favorite pizza joint, and find out which hotel offers 24-hour emergency care. You'll get the lowdown on corn-free entertainment, the most lavish casino buffets, and honest-to-god worthwhile sites and attractions that have absolutely nothing to do with gambling. Frommer's Irreverent Guide to Las Vegas is no-smoke-and-mirrors destination guide where you'll discover the genuine Vegas beneath all that neon.
