Roll the Bones

Roll the Bones

An historical escapade through gambling's origins in this exciting tour de force.

Author and gambling authority David G. Schwartz pulls no punches as he turns back the clock and recollects the origins of gambling in society. This world-class book tracks the history of gambling back to the days of old - cavemen and primitive hunters. Roll the Bones recounts the habits, patterns and myths around gambling - much to the delight of readers.

Subjects that are explored include: chances that cave dwellers took before they ventured outside, the odds of survival under certain conditions and the like. But the most impact Schwartz has on the reader comes in the form of dice origins, playing card history and more. He also manages to expose certain schemes such as how the 18th century lottery was manipulated and won by Voltaire, among others. This book makes for riveting gambling-style entertainment.
