Just a classic book. While Thorp was far from the first person to count cards, his experience's and idea's were great. A must read for any counter/Blackjack player. Even though single deck games now either suck or don't exist, this book is still worth it.

If anyone wants to know how to play the game of Blackjack, this book is the bible. Dr. Thorp, because of his research and strategies, changed the game forever. It is a fairly easy read and if nothing else, give those who enjoy "white papers" on specific areas of mathematics.
