The book, now available in an updated version called Exhibit CAA: Beyond Counting , is no longer available from the publisher in its original edition, but the text is considered a classic on the subject of turning casino games into profitable entertainment without breaking the law. When his first advice book went on sale in , it was one of the most popular books on the subject, applying mathematics he learned as a grad student at the University of Chicago studying Economics to various casino games. Since the advicev in the book is all about combining a logical approach to games of chance and skill, the topics covered in the book are totally legal. If the name James Grosjean is familiar to you, it may be because he made headlines in for winning legal verdicts against casinos and their investigative agencies.

Far from a blackjack strategy book, Beyond Counting attempts to teach gamblers how to turn a wide range of negative expectation games like roulette and slots into games where the casino has no edge against the player.

James Grosjean: Beyond Counting
The page Beyond Counting established James Grosjean as an expert on casino gambling at the very top of the upper echelons of expertise. I cannot praise this work highly enough, nor begin to describe the value contained within its pages for professional players in this concise review. In my opinion, Grosjean is on a level with Peter Griffin and a handful of others in both his understanding of advantage play and in his original work on not only blackjack but many other casino games. Grosjean seems able to put almost any concept into a chart, a table, or a mathematical formula. This is not a book for beginners.
