Beating the Odds: The Complete Diction/McPherson, Joh/Paper/0980346614/S031-A
With over 5,500 entries, Beating the Odds lists and defines a vast array of terms connected with gambling, racing, and games of chance - from ancient times and cultures to the internet age.
Beating the Odds has a wide appeal not only to academics and to the gaming industries but also to the many millions of gamblers and punters worldwide. This is not an earnest collection, but a delightfully written labour of love compiled by John McPherson over more than eight years.
Associate Professor Nerilee Hing, Head of the Centre for Gambling Education and Research, Southern Cross University, Australia, said: "This dictionary is such a rich source of information that the reader comes away in awe of the writer's researchàand with a far greater appreciation of the ubiquitous nature of gambling through the ages."
