Subtitled Inside the Culture of Casino Dealing, it should be read by anyone planning to train for a career in dealing and by anyone who wonders about the stresses of the job, the funny side of casino life, and the oddball nature of the players themselves.

He asks and answers questions such as: What's it like to deal as a profession? How does one get a job, keep a job and earn enough in tokes to make a decent living?

He does all this for those who want to understand the kind of pressures the whole layer of managePaperbound 2002
