I notice your books name is Blackjack Basics. How far will it take me. I have read and understood most of Wongs Blackjack Secrets! I need help with some of the acronyms and vocabulary that is not on this page!
My book's name is Bootlegger's 200 Proof Blackjack, not Blackjack Basics. It will take you through basic strategy blackjack to card counting, with information on risk of ruin, Wonging, the use of exit strategies and some advice on the perils of the road when it comes to playing blackjack. It has a comprehensive set of tables which illustrate the effects of using different betting ramps and it contains optimum betting ramps for most of the games you will find today. The betting ramps are for play-all style, strict Wonging and semi-Wonging (an exit strategy style of play).
Whether you purchase my book or not, if you are a serious player, you will find something of value in most of the decent blackjack books available today. For example, I don't use AOII, but Bryce Carlson's book, Blackjack for Blood is worth its price just for the good playing advice alone. The same can be said for many of the good books.
As for terminology, I'd need to know the specific terms which may puzzle you to give you any answers along those lines.
