Looks like you gave them a 110% effort and they wanted to thank you for it. Kind of back handed the way the used your name to give the book more of a draw. My fave beginner book is The New Gambler's Bible by Arthur S. Reber and Mason Malmuth. Reber is a professor of psychology at Brooklyn College and the Graduate Center of the City University of New York. Malmuth is Malmuth. I think the next time I pick up a book at Amazon I'll it pick up.
PS I got told off by "DeepNet Dan" for attacking you here at BJ21 re the dice thingie while discussing his "Golden Years Blackjack Method." I hope you don't feel that I have attacked you. You are the "Unsinkable Stanford Wong" and your friendship is more important to me than blackjack, craps, or any other game, physical, metal, or otherwise, imagined or perceived. You and Arnold are Thorp's main writer/protege's and have earned your respect.
I have never said that "Golden Years" doesn't work, nor that you can't roll an extra 7 to change Craps into a posEV game. I like how he put the two together, like a ham and cheese sandwich. You can't take a bite out of one without getting the other in your mouth. Clever? What I AM saying is that Golden Years works, but at a rate that is inferior to High Low (as per the creators own words). It SHOULD be easier to learn, but it SHOULD NOT cost you $700 or what ever when High Low is public domain. That is my only qualm with it.
I feel to become a dice expert, you would have to become as skilled as a top level dart player is. Imagine throwing a dart into the bullseye time after time after time. Now imagine throwing two darts into that same bullseye time and time again. Anyone can read about it in Jerry Patterson's Blackjack: A Winner's Handbook. "Dice setting," etc. Clocking Roulette wheels: all of the VooDoo (?) is covered there for $10.47.
