The 21st-Century Card Counter: The Pros’ Approach to Beating Blackjack by Colin Jones

Blackjack for Blood will hit home for many players – especially with Millenials. The book itself offers a complete winning guide, but the real value is in the delivery.
This book is quite enjoyable and the inclusion of some relaxed and drama-filled spots add to make it such an easy-to-read title.

Burning the Tables in Las Vegas: Keys to Success in Blackjack and in Life by Ian Andersen
For many longtime fans of Blackjack, you may recognise this author – Ian Andersen. This is because Ian wrote a compelling book about casinos back in 1975, and this could almost be considered a sequel to the classic which was his first title.
This Blackjack eBook is a little different to many other similarly focused reads. Although Ian has widened the scope with this title, it includes more than just Blackjack and Poker; it focuses on casino success in general.
But, this book doesn’t read like something that you would expect to see from compelling personalities like Tony Robbins and the over-the-top, pro-psychology-focused guides. What you will find in Burning the Tables in Las Vegas is a self-help book for casino gaming lovers, with the added benefit of anecdotes which set out Ian’s personal experience.
Overall, this is a fantastic book and well worth recommending to anyone that shares an enjoyment for casino life.
Bringing Down the House by Ben Mezrich
Ok, so this is somewhat a dark horse.
Full disclaimer – this is not a book which will provide you with the knowledge of everything you need to conquer Blackjack strategy and win millions doing so. However, it is a compelling book which gives an insight into the circumstances which surrounded the Blackjack team at MIT in the 1980s.
While this novel is a recount of those events with a twist, it is enjoyable to see the life of card counters back in the early days and their lives (to an extent).
If you loved the 2008 film ‘21’ directed by Robert Luketic you will love this book. It was, after all, one of the film’s inspirations.
