From the Publisher:

How To Gamble at the Casinos Without Getting Plucked Like a Chicken not only provides expert advice on the correct way to play the popular casino games, but is unique in its honest and realistic assessment of games in which you have no realistic chance of winning.

The combination of practical, honest information and humor makes this book the first of its kind. The author does not pretend that there is actually a proper strategy where one does not exist (e.g. with slot machines), but instead focuses on how to wring the best odds out of the best games. Thanks to the easy-going manner and light-hearted attitude, the reader will not only learn the expert way to play each game, but will enjoy learning while being entertained. Explanations of gambling systems, money management and gambler's ruin are included along with a discussion of the value of Comps.

Casino Gambling is treated as the kind of Entertainment Activity, or hobby, it actually is for the vast majority of those who frequent casinos. Since 25% of the entire adult population of the United States visited a casino at least once last year and since television and media coverage has become standard fare, a good working knowledge of the various games, which are playable and which are sucker games, is essential information for the informed consumer. In this regard, How To Gamble at the Casinos Without Getting Plucked Like a Chicken hits the Jackpot.

About the Author:

Dr. Ford retired from a career in commercializing emerging technologies and moved to Las Vegas, in his words: "to be close to my money." With a Ph.D. in Thermodynamics and degrees in Engineering and Materials Science, he taught Computer Programming for Engineers and worked in research and development throughout the United States. During his professional career, he developed an avid interest in the mathematics of gambling. Applying his considerable skills to the subject of casino gambling made him a respected player in short order.

When his health deteriorated dramatically, he was admitted to the UCLA Medical Center, where he underwent a double lung transplant. While he was recuperating, he wrote How to Gamble at the Casinos Without Getting Plucked Like a Chicken. Although he continues to have a strong interest in casino gambling, out of respect for his new lease on life, he now tries to limit his exposure to crowds and smoky environments.
