9780143118855: Repeat Until Rich: A Professional Card Counter's Chronicle of the Blackjack Wars

'I was thrown out of my first casino in spring of 2000. In the years since then I've kept playing and kept winning, in wigs, under aliases, from behind fake glasses. I've been chased across casino floors; followed outdoors by crazed goons with drawn weapons; pursued in a car at high speeds; and, placed wrongfully under arrest. Casinos continue to provide my entire income, along with free rooms, Champagne, and, most important, a mission in life. The heat, this business of getting thrown out, hasn't kept me away from the action at all; it's the very force that keeps me coming back'. "Repeat Until Rich" is the hotly awaited true adventure of how an average Joe in a dead-end spreadsheet job took to the road as a member of a blackjack card-counting gang taking millions of dollars from casinos across the US. Josh was an Ivy League graduate who grudgingly started a regular life before a chance meeting at a party changed his life forever. This is a brilliantly written memoir first and gambling book second - a universal tale of an everyday guy's unexpected exit into a mysterious and dangerous underworld from which there's no going back. It is a story about finding meaning in a crazed ongoing battle far from the dull and comfortable confines of the 9 to 5 world.

Book Description Penguin Books, United States, 2011. Paperback. Book Condition: New. Reprint. 213 x 137 mm. Language: English . Brand New Book. A deliciously wry, edge-of-your-seat memoir about making a fortune from counting cards. Filled with actual bad guys, chase scenes, and high stakes, Repeat Until Rich is an intoxicating, unprecedented view of the dangerous allure of living off the cards and by one s wits. At twenty-four, Josh Axelrad held down a respectable but dull job on Wall Street. Then one night, a stranger at a cocktail party persuaded him to leave the nine- to-five behind and pursue an unlikely dream: the jackpot. Taut, atmospheric, and written with clarity and wit, Repeat Until Rich presents a darkly hilarious account of ditching the mundane and entering the alternative universe of professional blackjack-with all its intrigue, adventure, and cash.
