When Barry Meadow decided to take two months off from his everyday life to play blackjack in every Nevada casino, he had no idea what he would find. Leaving behind his business, his fiancee, and his son, he set out on the road with a suitcase, a tape recorder, and $8,000 on the trip of a lifetime. He ran into cowboys and Indians, suffered the Stardust curse, split 10s in Winnemucca, and learned more about real-world gambling than anyone should have to know. With wit and wisdom, Meadow takes you on an incredible journey—literally, figuratively, even spiritually—all within the context of a professional blackjack player’s remarkable way of life. Gambling lessons, life’s lessons, Nevada geography lessons—this one’s got it all. One of the most highly acclaimed gambling books in the past half-decade.
