A shoe computer to beat roulette!

Whether you love roulette, caculating odds or computers then this book is for you! The author has the right amount of geekiness in terms of the technical talk that doesn't distract from the story. The book took me back to the 70's and 80's where my thoughts drifted to challenges faced implementing the shoe computer at a time Apple were building their first computers. A story that would suit any decade from the 70's through until modern day.

Stephen Tupper did the story credit with an excellent, passionate narration.
