The Ultimate Edge, tells the little-known story of four men who became instrumental in changing the face of contemporary professional blackjack, winning the admiration of players the world over, and the disdain of casino bosses everywhere. Through traditional narrative and detailed examples, deep technical insights, and his own instinct for the game, Billings tells a compelling tale of improbable friendship, cutting-edge blackjack, and good old human obsession. In The Ultimate Edge there is something for everyone: the general reader, blackjack enthusiast, or even the professional gambler. Billings’ book reads like a novel, teaches like a textbook, and entertains like a good Hollywood movie. Told with wit and filled with insider secrets known only to a select few of blackjack’s elite, The Ultimate Edge recounts the gambling adventures of four unique men you will not soon forget. Indexed 433 Pgs. 2008
