Synopsis: Step inside a world where fantasy, desire, and money form a potent and volatile reality. Follow the story of a young man, driven by grit and vision, who entered a topless bar for the first time, saw the future of gentlemen's entertainment, and made it a reality.

Alan Markovitz takes you to Eight Mile, Detroit's tough entertainment strip of Eminem fame, where as a young man in his early twenties, he bought a biker bar. He transformed the seedy hangout into a luxurious nightspot, one of America's first gentlemen's clubs. Hanging onto his dream through two violent shootings and a murder-for-hire conspiracy, he opened a string of wildly popular clubs across the country and became the most successful gentlemen's club entrepreneur in America.

Take a rare glimpse into a world of celebrities, power brokers, and even the mob. Indulge yourself in plush seats, top shelf drinks, and gorgeous women as you read the amazing story of a relentless businessman who made a fortune from the real American dream.

From the Back Cover: Prepare to enter the privileged world of the gentleman’s club, a world where fantasy, desire, and money mix to form a potent and volatile reality that surpasses fiction at every turn. Now prepare to see this world through the eyes of the man who has seen more than anyone, from the true personalities of the women performing on stage to what really goes on behind the stage.Meet the Midas himself, Alan Markovitz, who while only in his early twenties possessed the industry and vision to transform a modest bar on Eight Mile (the same from Eminem’s hit movie) into the first prototype of the truly modern gentleman’s club . . . and then to parlay that triumph into a string of wildly popular and highly profitable topless venues that continues to expand today, both in Michigan and around the country.By choosing sometimes unlikely locations and maximizing their potential through lavish investment and outlandish promotion—not to mention his talent for picking the hottest-looking young entertainers around—Alan Markovitz has boldly and permanently imprinted his own special brand onto one of the oldest businesses in the world—wine, women, and song.Surviving two violent shootings, one by a dancer and another by a rogue cop, Alan Markovitz has somehow emerged, decades later, squarely on top of the topless trade. Along the way, he also made bold moves that radically and forever changed its business model.No other autobiography comes anywhere close to putting the reader into what life is really like on the erotic side of the fast track, to be down for the count and then back in action running stronger and harder than ever. So, what are you waiting for? Let the valet take your car and step inside . . . let your eyes adjust to the light . . . and then prepare to have hem opened wide by the sights, sounds, and sensations found within the seductive realm of the modern gentleman’s club. And the story of the gentleman who brought it all to life . . . a titillating tale that’s part Mickey Spillane, part Fortune 500, and definitely on tap for entertainment tonight!
