Along with "what happens here stays here" and "Circus Circus isn't that bad", one of the biggest Las Vegas myths is that so-called insiders are the city's best sources of tips, reviews, and information. Often, however, obsessive Las Vegas visitors offer more trustworthy suggestions and accurate insights about the Las Vegas Strip and Fremont Street. An unapologetic Las Vegas outsider, author Tim Dressen shares advice, hints, and unfiltered opinions gathered as cohost of Five Hundy by Midnight, the Original Las Vegas Podcast, for more than a decade. With the same irreverent spirit as the podcast, The Outsiders' Guide to Las Vegas is packed with useful information, entertaining perspectives, and more than a few off-the-rails rants. This is the Las Vegas guide by an outsider, inspired by outsiders, and for outsiders.

For anyone planning a visit to Vegas this book is a must buy. Funny and informative. Loved it.
I started this audiobook thinking it would be a great guide to Las Vegas, I didn't expect it to be as funny as it was insightful. Genuinely entertaining listen. I can't recommend this book highly enough.
"Great information and very entertaining"
I recommend this book to anyone planning a trip to Vegas. It has so much information I plan to listen a second time. Very upbeat, funny and entertaining.
"For the Vegas nerd"
I enjoyed Tim's narration.
His sarcasm, just like in his podcasts, is entertaining to me.
No. I listened to it while driving. It kept me entertained for many, many miles.
Listen to his podcast Five Hundy By Midnight
A great resource for the beginner as well as the more experienced Vegas vacationer. Must have reference.
"The best ever Las Vegas guide"
This is a wonderful book full of useful information. It's a must read for any Vegas fan or anyone going to Vegas. It's also the funniest guidebook you'll ever read. I highly recommend this Audible book.
Its hard not to get excited about anything Vegas for me. Although I have been to Vegas about two dozen times, I figured lets hear what this guy has to say.
To my surprised, the book is pretty much up to date which is evident by the references to some of the newer places.
The book was enjoyable as it sort of reiterated stuff I already knew but also provided great insight into stuff I did not know.
The details about each hotel was very useful and glad to listen because my wife and talked about staying at a few places and drop them from the list after listening to the book.
Cromwell is one for sure that we will avoid staying at but will still visit for the gambling and Giada's.
For someone who hasn't been to Vegas before and thinking of going, its a great book.
"Five Hundey goodness"
I love Tim (and Michelle's) views on Las Vegas. This book flirts with the line of pure Vegas reference and Tim's opinion. I only wish it were longer.
"Great guide for all things Vegas"
I've been to Vegas about 20 times and still learned so much that I can't wait for the next trip. The author/narrator was not a professional, but you could hear how much he loves his subject matter and any missteps in reading just added to the charm. Very funny take on the people you see in Vegas and all true.
"Great insight; hilarious performance"
Set out wondering how a LV travel guide would work on audio. It turns out brilliantly, provided the author is a witty podcast pro who knows his stuff.
The reading is funny, relevant and full of first-hand experience and in-depth knowledge of all things Sin City, especially to tourists. Having been both a local and now a regular visitor, Tim analysis is spot on. A bit irreverent and a lot about food and booze, he tells it exactly like it is in a manner that hooks you.
I only wish he traveled to other places so he could write about them, too.
"A true outsides guide "
This book is fantastic! Tim is great and his personality really shines through his writing. If you listen to the podcast, you will understand. Great guide even for the Vegas obsessed!
