A great introduction to gambling concepts. However, Mason did not really wrote this book with beginners in mind, hence does not go in-depth as to the “step-by-step” of gambling. That said, this book is rather easy to follow, and gives a general sense of what to expect when you go pro gambling.
The book list at the end of the book was especially helpful. It culls all the great books and separated them from those with dubious content. It makes sure you gets it right the first time round.
