My vision is to have our own 'Book Review' section here that is based on our honest, truthful and factual reviews.  Anything from Gambling, Casino related, Casino industry as well as the Historical side of anything Gambling/Casino related.  Non-Fiction or Fiction.  From a new or unknown author publishing a book about 'gambling systems' to an established gaming author to a novelist writing a fiction novel.  Just in one way or another, it must be about gambling, casinos or the gaming industry in general.

Be as detailed as you can, take a few pictures or copy a few pages if you have the ability.  Please no one-liners or 'pure hate'.  If you are truly reviewing the book as a consumer and a non-author, I see nothing wrong in posting a link to one reputable sales site, such as Amazon, Barnes & Noble or a say a specialty book source of some type.

This section is for the review of a book/publication. Not to be used as a war-zone, argument central command or a debate room.  If you do not agree with what someone wrote, move on.  If you have something essential to add or further information that is constructive and pertinent about a book posted (without challenging the book reviewer) please post. 

Thank you, any questions please PM me and I will address them. 

My Blog within BetSelection Board:'s-blog/

Played well over 27,688 shoes of baccarat since I started playing at B&M USA casinos.

"Don't say it's a winning hand until you are getting paid for it".

Played numerous properties in Las Vegas, Reno, Southern California, Atlantic City, Connecticut, South Florida, The South/Southeast as well as most areas of The Midwest.

Baccarat, actually a mixture of Watergate, attacking the Gotti Family and the famous ear biting Tyson fight leading to disqualification and a near riot.  Bac has all that more.

  • In my role as Global Moderator I must add a couple of important point about coyright issues:

    Please do NOT copy pages and include them in your review. That is more than allowed by most western nations' copyright laws.

    However, it is OK to provide a sentence or two "in quotes like this" to support a point you are making.

    2  And most important of all:

    Please do NOT upload complete copies of whatever you are reviewing to the forum.  (If you do it will be quickly deleted so don't waste your time doing it!)

    That violates copyright laws and we can all do without the potential legal consequences.
