Because I loved the Amarillo Slim book, Amazon recommended that I might like this one as well.
The Man With the $100,000 Breasts is by Michael Konik. The best gambling story in the book is one referenced in the title, which I, unfortunately, was already familiar with. This book was more informative than entertaining. I learned quite a bit about craps, poker, sports betting, and Vegas.
As a person who has never gambled a single dollar in a casino* or even bought a lottery ticket, I am probably not the target reader. Gamblers, especially poker players, would probably enjoy this book more than I do. I preferred the Amarillo Slim book.
* I don’t consider Wall Street a casino, although I probably should. 🙂
