About the Book



"The Odds" follows the lives of three professional gamblers through a season in a one-of-a-kind city struggling to reconcile its lawless past with its family-friendly makeover. With a wiseguy attitude and a faultless eye for the sights of Vegas and its denizens, Millman has created a portrait that the" Wall Street Journal" calls "fascinating... often screamingly funny."



Book Synopsis



One gambler is a manic former cokehead with an Ivy League degree. The second is a college dropout trying to make a living at the only thing he enjoyed at school -- gambling. The third, one of Vegas's most respected bookmakers, is perilously close to burning out. The Odds follows the lives of these three professional gamblers through a college basketball season in a one-of-a-kind city struggling to reconcile its lawless past with its family-friendly makeover. With a wiseguy attitude and a faultless eye and ear for the sights and sounds of Vegas and its denizens, Chad Millman has created a portrait that the Wall Street Journal called fascinating. . . often screamingly funny. The Las Vegas Review-Journal had just one word for the book: Superb.
