Excellent book for beginners which covers all, including the history and the rules of all the most popular casino games, some gambling math, and even some tips to cheat which all you are supposed to know but of course never use.

Roll the Bones by David G. Schwartz

This product was recommended by Sally Blake from ittybittybags

David has written a truly comprehensive historical account of gambling. He tells his story in a way that guides the reader through the detailed historical context while also drawing appropriate connections between the past and the present. If you are engaged in gambling and want an informative guide to the origins of gambling to the current gambling culture, this is a must-read. Fun to read, this fine work will interest anyone interested in gambling or Las Vegas history. Dr. Schwartz hits a perfect balance between serious and quirky in this amusing book. His heavyweight credentials as a gambling historian come through but are never displayed for their own sake.
