Waiting for minimum critic reviews


In Easy Money, David Spanier examines the psychological motivation of gamblers—those who beat the system and those beaten by it. Portraying the personalities and legends of the gambling world, he ranges widely over his subject, considering the motivations of gamblers, even the physical sensations they experience. Although his focus is on the individual, he also looks at the percentages and the chances, the differences in European and American gambling, and the criminal element in U.S. gaming. David Spanier is a former London Times journalist and author of Total Poker and The Hand I Played.
