"A savvy, comprehensive text that covers the essentials of winning blackjack from soup to nuts. Bukofsky is an excellent writer, whose 'hold-your-hand' style makes it easy for the reader to master, sequentially, the skills needed to become a successful player.

I highly recommend it." ̄Don Schlesinger, author of Blackjack Attack: Playing the Pros' Way John Bukofsky is an electrical engineer and expert blackjack player who has played throughout the United States and Europe.
