Most Helpful Customer Reviews

9 of 10 people found the following review helpful By J. Butler on 6 Nov. 1999
I would not call myself an expert gambler. More a serious investor who is well read and has studied investment/gambling with the sole aim of making a profit.
This book contains useful information on the setup and rules for various gambling opportunities but that is all. For example, in the roulette section it fails to mention the work done on the prediction of the flight of the ball as demonstrated in "The Newtonian Casino" or similar work on Blackjack computers for surupticious use in casinos.
As a taster it would be a good book but it pretends to be a resource guide for those wishing to know more. It fails. Limited references to other books that would keep the aspiring gambler on the straight and narrow. Does nothing to warn people away from mugs games.
Sorry.
