Book Cover

The extraordinary true story of a suburban Detroit kid's crazy journey en route to creating a strip club empire.

A how-to business manual as much as a behind-the-scenes look at an often notorious, yet enigmatic world. Featuring Alan Markovitz's first hand accounts of how he:

  • First elevated the strip club from a blue-collar to a white-collar audience.
  • Almost died from a severe gunshot wound after being shot by a crazed dancer whom he fired.
  • Testified for the Feds against reputed Mafia members after they made threats to him.
  • Saw his dancers go on strike after implementing a revolutionary compensation system, which would later be adopted throughout the industry.
  • Was shot in the face by a drunken off-duty cop, ultimately requiring nine surgeries.
  • Watched his Holocaust survivor father face off against a dangerous biker gang who were about to overrun his first club.
  • Watched live an 11 o'clock news report of two hit men arrested for conspiring to kill...Alan Markovitz! Then had to work alongside the man who was fingered for hiring them.
  • Fought a 1st Amendment legal battle all the way to the United States Court of Appeals...and won.
  • Watched first hand the birth of the personal dance, which would become the lap dance of today.
