    "Okay, I'll admit it. I'm a gambling book junkie. I've purchased and read probably 30 books on the subject. Most books on gambling teeter between terrible and awful. They usually follow the following tedious formula: 1) describe a game in away no one could possibly figure out, 2) point out the extremely awful bets, 3) describe a gambling system or two, 4) relate a couple of great stories about how the author or his buddy used this technique to make a zillion bucks. This book certainly doesn't fit that formula at all (which is a good thing). I bought this book for my mother. My mother is now officially a senior and I don't get to see her often enough, typically twice a year for a day or so. Last year we went on a Vegas vacation together which seemed to give some very quality mother/son time. However, this was my mother's first visit to Vegas and she was a bit overwhelmed on how to deal with the extreme access to gambling (which means that she probably lost more than she felt comfortable with). Her previous experience has been with local Indian casinos - which means she's never really spent more that a couple of hours in a casino prior to our Vegas trip."

    "A book that I would normally not read, but grabbed out of curiosity before my trip to Vegas. Read this and the 101 It covers all games and gave me a base knowledge for everything. This can help you win but more importantly helped me avoid scenarios where I took a huge loss. Was able to easily understand it and apply what i learned while coming back home with a little bit more than I left with."

    "Winning is everything they say. Even more, that it is winning by luck that makes it more interesting and intriguing. But luck is limited and one is ought to play with it very carefully and strategically. Blackjack Strategy by Duke Landrey opened my eyes to new set of hidden rules and exploitations one may easily deploy to his own benefit without much needed effort. Even though the movie 21 has the probability geniuses who count cards on their team, Blackjack Strategy is for general population who are much more willing to beat luck with moderate amount of intellectual effort."
