    The World's Greatest Blackjack Book by Carl Cooper

    So I recently cam upon the book titled "The World's Greatest Blackjack Book" by Carl Cooper in my local thrift store. It is a first edition book that I haven't read it yet. I have read other books such as "Beat the Dealer" and "Playing Blackjack as a Business". Any thoughts on my current find"? Also....the book I found was signed with a personal message to two close friends by Carl Cooper. I thought this was pretty cool! I may sale it once I have read it. I attached an image of his signed page.

    You seem to have left out Lance Humble, as if Cooper wrote the book himself! Humble is by far the more prominent of the two authors, and the book signed by him would surely have more value (if any) than this one, signed by Cooper.

    I assume this is the hardcover edition with the black paper cover, right?

    It's a good book, has the Hi-Opt 1 count and Multi-Parameter Ace Side Counts inside. Section on cheating is a bit overblown (although it may not have been back in 1980 when it was written). Much of the book is now pretty dated but by any standard's it is a classic. https://i.ytimg.com/vi/GQhS29obdZM/maxresdefault.jpg
