Some Big "D" Underbelly History
There was some historical information relating to the rough and tumble days of the 40's and 50's. Overall, the story was so-so. I was not an "on the edge of my seat" captive. The story could have been better developed. The narrator was ok. It's not a book I will read again or recommend to someone else.

What made the experience of listening to I'll Do My Own Damn Killin' the most enjoyable?
Just to know the facts about the start of the dynasty...
What did you like best about this story?
How casually Binion could kill his competitors....and vice versa.
What about David Carpenter’s performance did you like?
Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?
The day Binion & a fellow conspirator planned a murder in downtown Dallas (where I live now) at a bank....and basically get away with it, and many more.
Any additional comments?
Pure facination how illegal gambling was tolerated in early Dallas, and what effect it had on Las Vegas....
What a charactor this man was.
