5.0 out of 5 stars A Great Value, 20 May 1999
By A Customer
This review is from: The World's Greatest Blackjack Book (Paperback)
The is the most straightforward book on any gambling topic I have ever read. Finally, a book that shots straight, and uses fact to support its arguements. 90% of all casino books are foolishly written, and based entirely on LUCK. These authors not only wrote a complete mathematical arguement, but supported each possible play with an actual occurence they encountered in casino play. Even if you aren't looking to conquer the casinos, this book is well worth the price in entertainment value.
PS: I'm doing very well with the system...

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent title, 15 Jan 2006
By A Customer
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The World's Greatest Blackjack Book (Paperback)
This book takes you from the basics of how blackjack is played, the foundations of good play and then into the counting system that the authors developed. Its very well written and allows you to add layers onto your playing skill by revisiting specific chapters and adding those areas when you feel proficient.
The only downside with the book is the era in which it was originally written. There is a strong overtone of cheating casinos, mobsters and heavy handed tactics.
A number of books are classics in this area and they tend to be mentioned a lot in other titles or by players. This is certainly one of them and the authors have certainly known and are known by other classic writers.

5.0 out of 5 stars Crucial for your Blackjack library, 6 Mar 2005
This review is from: The World's Greatest Blackjack Book (Paperback)
The book is a comprehensive account of Blackjack in a casino (or at home) and prepares the player for every pitfall a 'cheating' casino my put in your way. The book has been written with a heavy influence from the authors personal experiences and thus is not two dimensional and boring like some other texts (I enjoyed the author talk about Las Vegas mobsters and the underground world of organised crime). Humble makes sure that if he has mentioned an important point, the point is elaborated upon and explained thoroughly in following chapters.
As for the mathematics of the card counting systems; understanding the algebra behind the Hi Opt system and trying to understand exactly what Humble is trying to say can be a little overwhelming in parts. When faced with these chapters I recommend going back and reading the chapter several times.
This book is well worth purchasing, but before you spend your hard earned money on this classic piece of literature. Explore the Blackjack forum pages on the internet to see what the world champion blackjack players recommend.

5.0 out of 5 stars Lots of stratgety mixed with humerous anecdotes, 1 Mar 1998
By A Customer
This review is from: The World's Greatest Blackjack Book (Paperback)
This comprehensive book makes for a very smooth read. It's more than those other "dry" blackjack books where all they do is throw numbers and percentages at you. This is a personal book. It paces anyone from a knowledgable player to inexperienced beginner. The author's personal experiences shed light on a side of casino gamblng which is very valuable. They were also very entertaining. And the strategy is prime rate.

5.0 out of 5 stars Very simple way to learn a powerful card counting strategy., 15 Aug 1998
By A Customer
This review is from: The World's Greatest Blackjack Book (Paperback)
I'm ordering my third copy of this book since I have destroyed the other two through use. Of all the blackjack books I have read, this offers the most simple count (Hi-Opt I) coupled with other valuble tips on gambling in general. As a long time resident of Las Vegas, Reno and Tahoe I know the power of this book and what it teaches.

This review is from: The World's Greatest Blackjack Book (Paperback)
Simple and concise, a good book anyone with an interest in gambling should at least thumb through.

If it's good enough for Alan (The Hangover) it's good enough for me!

5.0 out of 5 stars Simple Yet Effective, 6 Mar 2011
This review is from: The World's Greatest Blackjack Book (Paperback)
The book is so well written, and almost impossible to put down. It isn't all learning and theory, but it is put across in a way that makes you want to read on and on; to learn the skills that it takes to be as good at blackjack as the authors and to experience some of the fantastic, odd, and funny situations that they have been in.
A must buy for those curious to the world of blackjack!
