Outdated but Interesting,

This review is from: Beat the Dealer: A Winning Strategy for the Game of Twenty-One (Mass Market Paperback)
If you are looking to learn blackjack for the first time or even if you are an intermediate player, I would not recommend this as the book to read. You should read Frank Scoblete's BEST BLACKJACK which teaches a much simpler and easier to learn card counting system. Also, Scoblete's book is a lot more fun. But Thorp is the genius who invented card counting and his book is a must as background.
