Synopsis: Plenty of gambling books explain how to play the games; that's Gambling 101. Gambling 102 takes you to the next stage, where you're playing in the best way with the least amount of effort. Within these pages, gambling's "Wizard of Odds" provides proven strategies for all the casino games--from baccarat to video poker to sic bo to craps--in terms that are easy to understand and implement.

Nineteen quick chapters (some as brief as two or three pages) cut right to the heart of each game. They give you, first, an assessment of the odds you face, then the basic strategies you need to lower them as much as possible. When should you raise in Three Card Poker? How good a hand do you need to Let It Ride? How will reduced "juice" affect your sports-betting results? And, of course, how do you pick, and play, the best blackjack game? Everything you need to play the games as well as they can be played is at your fingertips.

Gambling 102 is the product of years of mathematical analysis, computer modeling, and actual casino play. If you believe in luck or hunches, you probably need another book. But if you believe that mathematics provides the best way to approach games of chance, then Gambling 102 is the book for you.

About the Author: While working as an actuary for the Social Security Administration in the late '90s, Michael Shackleford compiled a list of the popular baby names to avoid choosing a trendy name for his own child. The baby names popularity lists took on a life of their own and since then have been published in dozens of newspapers, books, and magazines.

At about the same time Shackleford created the baby name list, he also introduced his popular gambling Web site, Wizardofodds.com. This, too, took on a life of its own. In 2000 Shackleford left his government job to devote full time to the Web site and a consulting business for the gambling industry.

Today he keeps busy with his web site analyzing new casino games for game inventors, designing slot machines, teaching a casino math class at the University of Nevada-Las Vegas, and serving as a consultant to land-based and Internet casinos around the world.
