I believe the Wiz stated that he is trying to contact him, not that he is known to him.



There is a difference between knowing someone and being known to them. The Wizard may not know TDane, but TDane is known to him because of the book.

It does not imply endorsement, merely recognition the work exists.

Fair enough question, buzz. Not initially, no. I network with a group of professional and semi professional players and if the book has the kind of info I am looking for, there is a good chance there would be some 'chatter and buzz' about it at which point I probably purchase it. I also like listen to interviews and participate in guest chat's involving the author, so I am glad to hear the Wizard trying to arrange the author as a guest on GWAE.

I will reserve comment until the author accepts or rejects the Wiz's offer. One would think an author would jump at such an opportunity, wouldn't you ??

Shouldn't the topic be in Kiosk, rather than Blackjack? Just sayin'.

I can`t see where he lists how many pages there are.I would suspect this is just a rehash of Cellini`s book and others,but I am interested in hearing him on gambling with an edge.

Yes, you would think he would jump at the opportunity to promote his product. But if he doesn't, it doesn't necessarily disqualify him in my mind. His claim is that he is a surveillance professional. Individuals that choose an occupation where they are locked away from the public are often, by nature, introverts and would not be comfortable in such a situation. But yes, I hope he accepts. I would like to hear more from and about him.

You have a strange way of reserving comment...:p

Are you still employed in the industry, buzz? Would it be ok, if I picked your brain occasionally by PM?

As for your 'radio' comment, I am sure you exaggerate, but I enjoy your sense of humor.

edit: On second look, I think I misunderstood your post. I thought you were referring to yourself, but on second look, I beleive you are reciting the authors info?? my bad.
