Overview
What We're Reading Now:
"I heard Amarillo Slim mentioned in a movie I saw a long time ago. I noticed this title one day while I helped a customer find a book, and I knew I had to read it. The story is so entertaining that I read it in three days. This man is a hustler without equal—you need to read it so you won't be hustled!"
Phillip Climer, General Manager
He has won $300,000 from Willie Nelson playing dominoes and $2 million from Larry King playing poker. He has shuffled, dealt, and bluffed Presidents Richard Nixon and Lyndon. He beat Minnesota Fats at pool with a broom, Bobby Riggs at table tennis with a skillet, and Evel Knievel at golf with a carpenter's hammer. Amarillo Slim Preston has gambles with 'em all, and left most of them wishing they hadn't. The memoir of a living American icon, Amarillo Slim in a World Full of Fat People is the story of life as a Texas road gambler, the evolution of the World Series of Poker, and how Las Vegas went from a small town controlled by the mob tp the fastest-growing city in America.
