5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent Book, December 4, 2010
This review is from: Conquering Risk: Attacking Vegas and Wall Street (Paperback)
This book is amazing. As someone who prob knew less then 1% to 5% of what is in this book before I read it, it was a tremendous eye opener. I now look at sports wagering in an entirely different capacity then I did before reading this book. I have read this book 2 times in it's entirety, and have gone back to review and read random sections of the book many times. I have now grown an appetite for +EV wagers and enjoy calculating and hunting for them. I also find that I am a lot less emotionally attached to the wagers that I make, because I am really starting to think in terms of probabilities. I didn't take a math class seriously after 9th grade, and I was able to comprehend much if what is in this book. For anyone who took several math classes in high school or beyond(and paid attention), this book will teach you even more. There are so many things talked about in this book that you can apply to your everyday wagering habits that really work. That is what I liked the most, that I could read this, understand it, make calculations, and then bet on the outcomes. I recommend this book to anyone who enjoys betting on sports. Well done.
