Books about Blackjack

The book is an autobiographical account of the author's adventures in card counting. I skimmed it and found it to be humorous and enjoyable. The author also presents the basics of card counting early in the book. So if the topic of what it really is like to count cards interests you then this book is worth checking out.

The book is a study of the basic strategy and the its adjustments under a host of different rules. Much of the book is devoted to analysis of short term gimmicks that happened in a limited area years ago. I would recommend this book to the player who plays a lot and may encounter unusual rules from time to time, including those who may play in Europe or Asia, or anyone with a mathematical interest with the game.

This is one of the best blackjack books I have read in a long time. Normally I just skim new blackjack books, but this one I read cover to cover. Almost everything in it is fresh material. Topics include an in-depth history of blackjack, biographies of the influencial people to the game, how to beat lots of blackjack variants and side bets, cheating, team play, an FAQ, and blackjack poetry. This book should be in every serious blackjack player’s collection.

Here is a great A to Z book on blackjack counting. I recommend it highly for beginning to intermediate counters. Snyder quickly cuts to point on everything important to a card counter without being too technical or number heavy. Included is coverage of the Red Seven and Zen Counts.

This book is largely comprised of the Blackjack Forum articles by Don Schlesinger. The reader should have a strong background in basic strategy and card counting to appreciate this book. Experienced players can gain a lot from one of the masters of blackjack theory but it may be too advanced for beginning or intermediate players.
