Mezrich's 'Bringing Down the House' Chronicles MIT Card Counting Team's Exploits
by Nick Christenson
Bringing Down the House covers familiar material, the story of the victories and travails of a successful blackjack team competing against the casinos, but this one is written well enough to make the material seem fresher than I might have expected. This is the story of one of the infamous MIT blackjack teams written for a mass audience, which means that it's probably not as detailed as serious blackjack students, myself included, might like. Still, it' s entertaining, and well worth reading.
New Blackjack Autobiography Tells Interesting Story
by Nick Christenson
Custer's book is not strategic, and there's more life story here than a lot of readers might prefer, but this part of the book is more interesting than I might have expected.
Wong's 'Professional Blackjack' Explores High-Low Count in Comprehensive Book
by Nick Christenson
This is Wong's exhaustive description of the High-Low count system. Anyone who has decided to use this system will definitely want this book, but if one is searching for which system to use, I'd recommend reading Wong's Blackjack Secrets to evaluate the High-Low. However, even if one uses another count, this is a very useful book for any card counter, and it belongs on the shelf of every serious blackjack player.
