"This special edition remains the comprehensive unified mathematical treatment for a wide range of games of chance and skill. It includes the counter-intuitive Parrondo's paradox: a winning strategy can result from switching between losing games. An entertainment for all who read it, a text for innovative university courses, and a reference for those concerned with probability and game theory."--Edward O. Thorp, author of BEAT THE DEALER and BEAT THE MARKET

-genesis, is first defined as a suffix, meaning 'origin'.
Kubeia comes from The New Testament Greek Lexicon.
Kubeia (koo-bi'-ah). Definition 1. dice playing 2. metaphor for the deception of men, because dice players sometimes cheated and defrauded their fellow players.
Translated to english in Ephesians as both 'sleight' (KJV) and 'trickery' (NAS).
Clearly, Kubeiagenesis is meant to be the origin of sleight, trickery, and deception.
That it is the first word of the text may be to inform the reader that what follows may be nonintuitive -- but is well defined, documented, and referenced. You may find yourself reading several of the referenced texts before completing the book if you are going to absorb it all.
This book is the Bible on the subject. The author brilliantly interweaves relevant stories, and shows connections to disciplines outside mathematics and gaming. If you simply want answers and don't care how they were calculated, try some of the other texts offered. If you want to understand the subject -- buy this book.
