This book is about odds, and the chances of actually winning at a wide variety of gambling, from casino games to sport betting to lotteries. But while odds can be a dry subject, Orkin's presentation isn't. He livens it up with quotes from great literature and great wits, as well as his own sense of humor. There's profitable information here. For example, while Orkin confirms that you can't up your chances to win a state lottery, there are ways of increasing your win when you do get lucky. It pays to listen up when Mike Orkin spills the chips.About the Author:
