Blackjack Attack by Don Schlesinger
Don Schlesinger, a gaming mathematician that specializes in blackjack, is one of the most influential authorities in the blackjack world. It is no surprise, therefore, that his book Blackjack Attack: Playing the Pros' Way is one of the most influential books in the arena of advanced blackjack strategy and card counting.
Blackjack Attack is made up mostly of a compilation of articles that Schlesinger published in Arnold Snyder's Blackjack Forum. Schlesinger touches on everything from optimal betting and risk analysis to camouflage, team play, systems comparison and more.
Blackjack Attack is written with the experienced card counter in mind. Beginning card counters and new blackjack players will not reap much benefit from the book. However, for players that are already familiar with at least one card counting method and have put card counting to the test in live play and want to take their game to the next level, Blackjack Attack is a must read.
For players that have already read Schlesinger's Blackjack Forum articles, expanded writings and additional information can be found in Blackjack Attack. Many of the articles have been edited and expanded upon over the book's three editions and the book now covers over twice as much material as it did previously.
