One of the biggest mistakes most people make gambling is not knowing when to stop. I don't know how often I've heard "I made a couple hundred bucks but gave it back to them. Big deal, it wasn't my money". Well, they're wrong. It was their money! Game money management is just as important as game strategy and bet strategy. This book does a nice job of introducing the bettor to all three components of all the casino games and gives someone a chance to actually know what they're doing.
The nicest thing communicated in the book are the odds of winning each game and the odds of winning each bet in that particular game. You don't have to be a mathematician to understand these since the math is already done, you just need to remember good bets versus bad bets. With a little practice and a little memorization, don't forget discipline, your experience at the casino, at the gaming tables in particular, will be much more enjoyable and, hopefully, more profitable.
Why this book isn't currently published is beyond me but there are plenty of used books available that are inexpensive. You can pick this thing up for under $5 and, believe me, if you're new to this kind of stuff this will pay for itself over and over again. Well worth the investment.
