The book is edited and published by the author's friend. I am sure Mr. Killebrew is an interesting person and a pleasure to be around. Why else would so many people enjoy playing him and getting beaten by him? But the impression I get is one of a sleazy braggart of a con-artist. A small publishing house is fine, but usually there is a reason a regular publishing company does not pick up one's manuscript: it just isn't quite good enough. Looking at the other items Swan Pub. and his editor Pete Billac has come out with, they almost all involve the same things about which we get spammed. Having read the Bicycle books on hearts and spades by Joseph Andrews, one sees how a book on a card game should be written.
I was also lured in by the positive reviews. I should have listened to the negatives this time. I should have noted that several of the glowing reviews are written by the author (ckill2015). I also note that the anonymous reviews were written soon after the book's publication, many of which were posted on the same day.
As to the quality, there just isn't much here, certainly not enough to justify a $9.95 price tag. Gin Rummy is not THAT complicated a game to warrant an extensive treatise, but Gin Rummy How to Play and Win, in fewer pages and with a much lower price, covers FAR more information on the game, variations and strategy.Read more ›
The author brings out fallacious ideas like you have to "think about the card you want and it will make you more likely to get it". This won't help the author's credibility. A good publisher would have never let him publish such non-sense.
Also, the overall tone of the writing does not inspire confidence. I was not looking for a novel, but I like it when the author sounds professional.
I am not in good position to judge the rest of the book. But that's the scary part! I won't be able to tell the good from the bad!
I only recommend that book because I couldn't find many other books about Gin. I advise the reader too be cautious reading this book.
yep, he seems to be full of himself. doesn't need to be. just get the material across and the book sales will come.
the illustrations were clear as well as the layout of the book too. he can thank his publishers for that.

A generally worthless book. Of course, I wouldn't expect anyone to give away any really good secrets, but there's almost nothing of value in here. I paid $1. Read morePublished 16 months ago by gininnola
I wish I could give it less than one star. Save your money and buy something else because this book will teach you little to nothing about gin rummy.Published on January 12, 2014 by Chad R. Corey
Self published with big print. Must be tongue-in-cheek, he could not really believe that concentrating on the card you want increases the chances of getting it. Read morePublished on January 6, 2014 by whhosken

This guy may be a good gin player, but he's really full of himself.
His advice is excessively basic.
Also, he admits that he cheats at cards for money. Read more
