About the Author

Ion Saliu was born on March 9, 1950, at Gemeni, Romania. He graduated in 1976 with a degree in political economics from the Academy of Economic Studies in Bucharest, Romania. The ultimate free thinker, Ion Saliu had to collide with the rigidity and intolerance of Communism. He fled Romania in 1984 by crossing the border into former Yugoslavia. Ion Saliu was resettled as a refugee to the United States in 1985. Ion Saliu lives in Gettysburg, Pennsylvania. Ion Saliu created his Web site, SALIU.COM, in 1997. He discovered and published several theories and software packages in the realm of probability theory. --This text refers to the Paperback edition.

The book isn't really a book but an advertisement. I can't find anything substantial but was keep referring to his website and using his softwares. A lot of his points seem absurd to me and I read contraries before which sounds more rational. I thought it was a book discussing probability of real lives. It turns out to be a book of gamblers. Nay, a book of gambler's fallacies. I don't know if anyone really gamble according to his recommendation although I will never do so.

This book, by Ion Saliu, is, as others have stated, partly a sales pitch for membership to his website which gives access to his statistical software... and Ion Saliu is quite fond of himself, and it shows in all of his media, including this book.

Putting this aside, his book (his "first" book) is a good read for those interested in defining the undefinable... that is... this is a well articulated construct for those seeking to get a grasp on randomness, and how randomness applies to games of chance.

I spent many hours reading this book, and it has helped clarify some things for me. I used a highlighter to highlight some things he puts into words which I think are kind of epic in nature. One of those is "THE PAST COUNTS". What he is saying here is that when flipping a coin, for example, if you flip it once the chance of either heads or tails occurring are 1 in 2, or 50/50, or 50% chance of the coin landing on either... but, if you toss the same coin a second time, the chance of the coin landing on either has changed. This is something I already knew, but it's nice to have someone who is brilliant confirm it for me. Most people would disagree with this because most people believe that "THE PAST DOES NOT COUNT". Ion Saliu breaks it down for you mathematically, in his book, in a way that it's unavoidable to conclude that he's right, and everyone else is wrong... and I agree with him... THE PAST does COUNT! If you play a lottery number (say 123 Straight)today and the chance is 1/1000 of your number being drawn, and you lose your bet, then tomorrow the chance for 123 Straight to be drawn will increase. The chance is no longer 1/1000.

Most mathematicians, scientists, and statisticians will tell you that the odds never change.

This is a horribly written book. Obviously the author has no idea how to write. Presume in any language. The book cannot provide information for anything besides some vague ideas of software the author has written, which perhaps only he could use.

I bought the book because his website was so helpful, I want to support his work. I've paid mathemeticians hundreds of dollars to test my probability theories. Now, thanks to Saliu, I understand the principles and can do the work myself!

Best new info concerning blackjack in a long time. The short comment about dealer breaks is amazing. I played that system this weekend at the casinos and did very well.
