Las Vegas, 1970s—a golden age of Glitter Gulch corruption. Dennis Gomes--the youngest division chief in Gaming Control Board history--whipped a ragtag group of auditors into hardened, gun-slinging investigators, and shattered clichés about milquetoast accountant cops. Coming within a hair’s breadth of death more than once, Gomes capped off his tenure with the famous bust of the Stardust skim, portrayed in the book and movie Casino. In Hit Me!, there’s action to fill a dozen Scorsese films—midnight raids, heart-rending showgirl romances, and deadly double-crosses. And the cast of characters reads like a roll call of gangster lore. But no matter how much evidence Gomes uncovered, or how many witnesses and informants were bloodied, Gomes was swept aside by a political system that was dirty to its core. It took nearly three decades, but in 2007, Gomes made a date with destiny at The Family Secrets Trial--the justice system finally taking out a “hit” on the mob. In a Chicago courtroom on July 30, 2007, Gomes--a key prosecutorial witness--finally settled all scores. Dennis Gomes, who passed away in February 2012, will be posthumously inducted into the Gaming Hall of Fame in Las Vegas in October 2012.

Right after I began implementing the principles in the book, I experienced an immediate turnaround in my financial life.So I reached out to him via the email he provided to thank him for the impact his book had had on my financial life. However, I wanted more so I asked him if he had any coaching program of a sort that I could join. I did not hesitate when he asked me to join his Financial Coaching Program.I was privileged to be one of the select few he started the program with but I was blessed because his wisdom and guidance changed my life. Through that coaching program, I was able to build my first house in three months - something that would have been a dream if I had not met himNow I sleep with a peace of mind and a great bank balance. The best part of the whole story is that the tasks that I had to do as part of my duty in the program awoken some great qualities that had gone dormant in me. Now I am a much better person than I was when I met him.Reading his books was a great decision but taking his coaching program was the best decision I had made in a long while. I totally recommend it to anyone who wants to turn their lives around, leave their comfort zone and achieve more than they ever have. -ANDREWS A.K
