Alan Lapidus' life has been a "Zelig"-like romp through most of the cultural and political highlights of the recent past. He has popped up as architect for or observer of many of our era's most iconic figures, including Donald Trump, various mafia big-shots, mayors, Aristotle and Jackie Onassis, Bob Guccione, pit bosses, real estate legends and spies. "Everything By Design" takes us behind the scenes in Las Vegas, Disney World, Havana, Atlantic City, Moscow, the Amazon rainforest, and New York. Along the way we learn why Mickey Mouse never seems to use the restroom, why the baccarat tables in casinos are always for away from the dice tables, and why the CIA wanted him to redesign Havana's main synagogue. "Everything By Design" is a keenly observed social and cultural history of modern America, by one of its key shapers. 308 pages. Illustrated with black and white photograph. Quantity Available: 1.
