Publisher's Summary

New York Times Best Seller 

Edward O. Thorp is the father of card counting, and in Beat the Dealer he reveals the revolutionary point system that has been successfully used by professional and amateur card players for two generations. From Las Vegas to Monte Carlo, the tables have been turned, and the house no longer has the advantage at blackjack. 

Containing the basic rules of the game, proven winning strategies, and how to overcome casino countermeasures and spot cheating. Beat the Dealer is the Bible for players of this game of chance. Perforated cards included in the book are a convenient way to bring the strategies into the casino. 

A winning strategy for the game of 21. The essentials can be understood and memorized by the average player. 

PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying PDF will be available in your Audible Library along with the audio.

Gr8 book

this book is a great start for beginners or anyone that's trying to learn the game of 21. And wanting to understand it from a mathematical standpoint. I can't wait to use this out on online Blackjack and in the casinos.

Great Informative Book

Only one down side to audible book, you don't get to see the graphs and charts they continuously reference. As for as the book goes it was a very interesting and informative read that I recommend.
