This biography provides a comprehensive look at the life of this important Nevadan. Vernettis research into Cannons papers, Senate and court records yields a fuller accounting of the senators involvement in the secret Howard Hughes marriage than was previously available.It also reveals details about the Justice Department corruption investigation that helped end Cannons political career and evidence of the striking lengths to which he went to try to get Benny Binion a presidential pardon.But the prickly nature of his subject makes this book an often numbing read, as the author, a former Review-Journal and Associated Press reporter who was Cannons Washington press secretary, is unable to offer much in the way of animating insight to enliven page after page of legislative procedures.

Cannon, who is remembered mainly for the major roles he played in airline and trucking deregulation, spends the bulk of the book shepherding bills through various committees.Its hard not to suspect that there was a better tale to be told about the life and, especially, times of this war hero and power broker who came to prominence at a time when Las Vegas and Nevada were exploding and America saw historic social change.Read my complete book review:
