Jay Rankin received his M.A. in Psychology in 1984, but has held a variety of jobs, including being employed in not one, but two locked units of two psychiatric hospitals,  a probation officer inside the detention camps for Los Angeles County, building single family homes in Connecticut, Los Angeles, and Las Vegas,  and co-producing and field reporting for "Las Vegas Business Week," on ABC in Las Vegas.
 
But working as a doorman at the MGM Grand Hotel and Casino from the grand opening in 1992 until 2000 gave him the experiences that eventually had to be told in a book, "Under The Neon Sky: A Las Vegas Doorman's Story," which has earned rave reviews, including:
“One great Vegas story…I was riveted”  – Steven R. Schirripa,  "Sopranos" actor, HBO
 
“Under the Neon Sky reads like a novel, tragic and uplifting at the same time, a great read, hard to put down.”  – John Kremer, Author, Speaker & Consultant
 
I'll be talking to Jay about those experiences and opening the phone lines to callers who might have some of their own.
