Gambler's Book Shop: Comes up Aces

If you haven't heard about the Gambler's Book Shop in Las Vegas, who bill themselves as "The largest selection of gambling books, videotapes and software in the world!" you've missed out on a priceless treasure. Howard Schwartz longtime owner, is one of Las Vegas's most colorful and savvy denizens. It's worth a trip to the store just to meet Howard whose years in the biz make him an expert on gambling. (my words, not his.) Here's Howard's bio right off the Gambler's Book Shop Website:

Howard Schwartz, the "librarian for gamblers," is the marketing director for Gambler's Book Club in Las Vegas, a position he has held since 1979. Author of hundreds of articles on gambling, his weekly book reviews appear in numerous publications throughout the gaming industry.
