About this title


This alphabetical guide provides an insight into the history of the world of gambling, the various games and their variations and the systems associated with them, the most common forms of cheating, the world's most notorious gamblers, noted gambling halls and casinos and relevant slang.

From Library Journal:

Gambling, both legal and illegal, is a multibillion-dollar industry and a constant source of interest as well as entertainment. The Encylopedia . . . is, to the best of this reviewer's knowledge, the only encyclopedic-style reference work on the subject. It is comprehensive, accurate, and well-organized. Furthermore, it is well-written in the kind of breezy, informal style best suited to the subject matter. It is replete with history and anecdotes, some true and some probably fictional, as well as biographical sketches of celebrities who are associated with gambling in its many forms. The author is not shy about expressing his personal opinions and recounting some stories from his own experiences. This is an excellent choice for someone who wants to learn about or study gambling, or just for browsing.
