Book - 1998

When legal casino gambling began to proliferate in the late forties and fifties, the writings of John Scarne were considered the preeminent guides to playing and winning. For the nineties and the twenty-first century, Gamble to Win will be known as the gambling bible.

In some respects gambling is a study of the mysteries of life. The tables don't react to anything we do, yet they usually get the better of us. It seems as if we are being outwitted by objects that have no wits. But what really happens is that we drop our guard. Gamble to Win not only addresses this phenomenon, but also explains how professional gamblers do what they do, how they look at life, and what they know that gives them an edge.

Gamble to Win is perhaps the most comprehensive and illuminating gaming manual yet written, for it dares to go where no book has ever gone: deep into the minds of those who play games for a living. It does not admonish or simply that a player can never hope to overcome the long-range effects of the house edge; instead it reveals in explicit detail how this can be accomplished. As such, it is an absolute must for serious gamblers, and it should be the foundation of any collection of books on the subject of casino gambling.
