This is a hefty 328 page book covering everything blackjack from A to Z with lots of expert advice and some secrets about the game that the casino doesn’t want you to know. I found at least five chapters covering counting methods including True Count, Red Seven Count, The Hi-Lo LiteCard and the Zen Count and the Zen Playing Strategy. Arnold also offers10 rules to cut casino edge to 1%. So much is covered, that this may be the only book you’ll need to get ahead at casino blackjack. This book is well written and easy to read, and most importantly, easy to understand with lots of examples; and includes some of topics you wouldn’t expect. One chapter covers Card Counting and the Law with the first section entitled, “Is it Legal to Think in Casinos?” Another section warns you about buying phony systems advertised in glossy magazines found in casino gift shops or your hotel room.
