Bob Miller, a casino heir who became governor of Nevada, will discuss his new book, "Son of a Gambling Man," a memoir of growing up in mob-run Sin City, with a foreword by President Bill Clinton.
"Bob's journey could only have happened in Nevada. His memoir gives us all a unique, entertaining, and thought-provoking glimpse of how Las Vegas evolved from its outcast roots to the modern metropolis nicknamed 'the All-American City.'" —from the foreword by Bill Clinton
"Thanks in part to Bob’s leadership, Las Vegas has grown into a world-class tourist destination…SON OF A GAMBLING MAN is a touching personal memoir and engaging history." —Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid
Bob Miller is Nevada’s longest serving governor, holding office from 1989 to 1999. His son, Ross, who is named after his grandfather, is presently in his second term as Nevada’s secretary of state.
