I'm always looking for good reading material on gambling or cheating. Has anybody read anything recently that you can recommend and why?

There are no good books on gambling, because when it comes to gambling, the only good thing worth knowing, is what no one else knows.

If there is a single truth about Magic, it is that nothing on earth so efficiently evades it.

I just finished Fast Jack the Last Hustler. It was a very good read.

Every year, I reread Larry Seidel's "Investing in College Basketball."

Guess they forgot to tell Bill Buckley.
