A very interesting read. It deals with the sex industry in Las Vegas.

Jack Sheehan is allegedly a happily married man and long-time resident of Las Vegas. With Skin City, he has written an expose of poorly kept secrets sprinkled with travel tips and pricing guides. Though some of the material (descriptions of certain strip clubs, legalized brothels, etc.) is specific to Vegas, other subjects such as pornography are not. Sheehan uses interviews with prostitutes, gigolos, strippers, and porn stars to bring the reader into the world of the sex industry. He also uses some first person accounts: in a particularly "ewwwww"-inspiring section he describes his teenage encounter with a prostitute. (Too much information, Jack!)

Skin City is an easy read. Although those in the know will likely learn nothing new here, the average Joe (or perhaps I should say Jane since all my guy friends seemed to know everything in this book already) will be entertained.
