Repeat until rich by Lee Aaron Blair

A really startling memoir, this book follows the author as they learn how to count cards in order to win money playing blackjack in casinos.

Planning an itinerary of casinos to visit, playing in a team and leaving with pockets full of money, often with the security guards hot on their heels; the players work hard and play hard.

The book is entertainingly written throughout, with a stark and dramatic change in tone in the final chapter. There is something of a twist in the tail, one which I can’t help but feel I should have expected- but it came out of the blue for me.

I was fascinated by the author’s account of  a life lived on the edge. Card counting is not illegal, but it is for obvious reasons unpopular with casinos.
