Groom’s Book Club: A Review of ‘Fool Me Once’ by Rick Lax

HINT: If you’re sending us a book to review, it doesn’t hurt to boast a subtitle like ‘Hustlers, Hookers, Headliners and How NOT To Get Screwed in Vegas.’ Rick Lax‘s new work ‘Fool Me Once‘ does just that. And if you’re  planning a bachelor party weekend in Vegas, you must read this “field guide” if you want to make it out in one piece.

‘Fool Me Once’ by Rick Lax

The sad truth in our post ‘Hangover‘ world is that every Average Joe thinks that they can handle Vegas and not get conned/go broke/die. It’s even worse for guys traveling to Sin City for the first time (like some of you may be getting ready to do for a bachelor party).

….Oh, let me guess, you’re different. You’ve been to Vegas before. You know how to “do Vegas right.”  Alright hotshot, allow me to pose the following questions to you:

1. Do you think you can read any player’s face at the poker table?

2. Do you think the hot bartender will really drink the $12 shot you’re going to buy her?

3. Do you think Criss Angel’s “Mindfreak” is the coolest show on television?

By answering “yes” to any of these questions, you immediately are disqualified as being “ready for Vegas.” No worries though. As I said before, ‘Fool Me Once‘ is your field guide for your Vegas adventure. Rick wrote the book after his girlfriend was fooled by a conman in Chicago. The overwhelming paranoia and feelings of helplessness could only be soothed by traveling to Vegas to learn how the deceivers, hustlers and con artists really work. He took these bastards on heard first… and lived to write about it. Buy ‘Fool Me Once’ on Amazon

In ‘Fool Me Once,’ you’ll learn how to spot card counters, bluff poker pros, create your own polygraph test and pick up woman without cheesy pickup lines. Now, if that doesn’t sound like a hell of a bachelor party weekend, I don’t know what the hell does!

In addition to having mad skills as a writer, Rick can actually draw pretty well.
