How do we know if we can beat the bookmaker? That's easy: just look at our bank balance. But how do we know if we've not just been lucky? More specifically, how do we know that someone who says he can do it, and who is selling his 'expertise', can keep doing it again and again, through talent, skill and hard work? This book examines the techniques available to answer that question, to identify those qualities and to help the punter find value for money in an industry that appears to be largely built on trust and the influence of chance; to uncover the truth about sports tipsters and ultimately how to find the best tipsters - the 'Black Cats'.

"Why a fictional memoir and why the arcane language? . . . to tell a story about a youth who is mentally a pre-teenager while physically developing as an adult? Because the works I admire most seem to fall into that literary genre: Marcel Proust, James Joyce, Gertrude Stein, Lawrence Durrell, and more recent writings like Robert Pirsigs Zen and the Art of Motorcycle Maintenance and like Dave Eggers A Heartbreaking Work of Staggering Genius. And because the youth, Vaney, expressed himself in arcane phrases like mama gift it to me and meaningful body language as well as mysterious seizures. Finally, why self-publish? Because the publishing industry may not yet be ready for major changes as it was unready for Proust, Joyce and others. Zahn Pesh hopes you enjoy this book."

People have been gambling, in one form or another, for as long as history itself. Why? Money, entertainment, escape and a desire to win are all traditional explanations. Arguably, however, these are secondary considerations to a higher order purpose: a craving for control. Gambling offers a means of gaining authority over the unknown, granting us a sense of control over uncertainty. Almost always that sense is illusionary - gambling, including betting and investing, is essentially random - yet for many it is nonetheless profoundly rewarding. This book attempts to explore the reasons why. Along the way, it examines: The science of probability and uncertainty; Why gambling is often condemned; The difference between expectation and utility; The irrationality of human beings; Evolutionary perspectives on gambling; Luck and skill; Market efficiency and the wisdom of crowds; Why winners take all; Cheating; Why the process matters more than the outcome.
