    Useless Book

    Don't bother buying this book if you're looking for an honest-to-goodness way to beat Blackjack without counting. The book does a good job of describing what Blackjack is and all the associated strategies. However it never ACTUALLY gives you a way to beat blackjack without counting. The reason why it doesn't is because it's IMPOSSIBLE to beat BJ without counting. The BEST CASE scenerio is that you reduce the house edge to 0% (using perfect basic strategy)This is covered in the book. but even having done that, you'll always come out even money every time. The only way you consistently come out ahead (money-wise) is to increase/decrease your bets when the deck favors it, and the only way to know that is counting cards. Outside of that you're just guessing and there's no concrete mathematical reliability in guessing. I knew this principle even before I bought this book so I don't know why I bothered buying it anyway. Don't give your money to Marten Jensen so he can get rich off your curiosity. He isn't making money playing BJ without counting cards, he's just re-gurgitated all the standard blackjack basic knowledge/strategy, much like most of the Blackjack books on the market.

    Good book.

    This book gives you some good information, but it is not saying anything new. I would recommend it though because it does contain some note-worthy material. In my opinion, if you want a serious book on multiple deck games, get the Gregorian Strategy for multiple deck blackjack.
