Casino Chronicle is the story of how one man contributed a number of visionary ideas that the casino he worked for used to grow its business and add comforts to its customers. This should be a story about great success for the writer and his employer, but unfortunately it is not. This memoir is also the chronicle of how the author's ideas were stolen, under the guise of an "employee suggestion program," then he was marginalized, his sanity questioned, and then ultimately pushed aside. It revolves around a series of dark chapters from 1996 to 2004 that would change the author's life, but also teach valuable lessons about the nature of casinos and the truth about what can go wrong between the powerful and the powerless. This is one man's story, but it could happen to anybody.
