Since High Opt.2 is mostly used in single and double deck games, the author makes recomendations as to which counts to use for shoe games.
The book also teaches complete Basic Strategy and an abbreviated version. Some of the other topics include how to win at tournament blackjack, internet blackjack, team play, camouflage, money management, and his experiences playing blackjack internationally including being harrassed by US customs upon re-entering the US with $40,000 in cash. It turns out Congress gives customs the authority to strip search anyone, including US citizens, entering the country with alot of money. They didn't do that to him, but it's scary to know that's what the law is. The author also sprinkles in personal anecdotes about his own experiences playing blackjack all over the country.
