An absolute great book by all means.  Although non-technical, this novel is north of classic!  Highly highly recommend it.

I posted this in July 2017...............glad someone read it.



Another good casino book is "Fools Die" by Godfather author Mario Puzo.

You can probably get it for free at your library.

Written in 1979 it's a little outdated.......but still a very good read.......I'm surprised it hasn't been made into a movie.

I remember you did.  It is certainly a great story by a great author! 

I always had this book and forgot about it until it was quoted in a technical mathematical journal by a university professor on Casino Mathematics!

I do remember reading some time ago that the right were sold for this book but also their was a restriction on making it into a movie or something along those lines.  On a side note, "Bugsy" would come to mind, gambling, the mob, love story, drama, drama, drama, etc.

Love is like the little red toy wagon you get for your Christmas or your sixth birthday. It makes you deliriously happy and you just can't leave it alone. But sooner or later the wheels come off. Then you leave it in a corner and forget it. Falling in love is great. Being in love is a disaster
