I just downloaded Edward Thorpe's new book and was just wondering if anyone here has read it yet? In a few weeks I am going on vacation and plan to read it then.

Does anyone have any suggestions on any other new books on gaming as I hope to read a few more books while on vacation?

May or may not be for you... If you've ever "done" blackjack then I love Nathaniel Tilton's "The Blackjack Life". Of course I also believe this book is a mirror to my business partner and my own experience so maybe I'm biased, but I seriously loved this book out of all the gambling related books I've read.

Does anyone know of any gambling books (in general not necessarily blackjack related) that are done on audible? =P
Playing it correctly means you've already won.

I learned more from Monte Carlo Anecdotes,
written in 1910, than any other gambling book.
It's fascinating stuff and amazing how little
things have changed in 110 years.

You can read the whole thing online here:

Thorp
I have read it and really enjoyed it.
If you have read Beat the Dealer , some of his early anecdotes are retold along with his time working with Claude Shannon.
After that he gets more into his investment career.
Munchkin's Gambing Wizards is good,also the Ultimate edge by Mark Billings.

Thank you, I have read both of those. I'm just wondering if anything interesting has came out in the last year or two that I may have missed.
