Dependent Origination

Bring Down the House

从朋友那里借来的. 后面很好看, 前面和中间都有点儿平淡. 但是自从开始有敌人之后, 一切就非常有趣了. 据说是真事儿, 不知道有多少是真的. 里面所说的策略估计早就被现在的赌场禁止了, 所以想要照葫芦画瓢估计还是算了.
以前上学的时候有个officemate据说也是个card counter. 常常没钱了就去atlantic city赌上几把, 搞个几百块钱就回家的那种. 如果这本书里面讲的是真的, 一个人的card counter要很辛苦很辛苦的才能赚到钱, 而且很容易被赌场发现. 这个当年的officemate在传说中可是非常潇洒非常简单的就搞定了哈. 由高班的同学讲给我们低年级的人听, 我们在讲给更低年级的人, 代代相传, 添油加醋,  一代大侠就此诞生, 而且在传奇中永生不灭哈.
书结尾的时候提到那几个die hard fans, 拒绝停止, 看起来觉得好奇怪. 都是这么聪明的人了, 而且赚的钱也不少了, 怎么已经很明显的遇到了physical abuse了还这么执着呢. 难道quit真的这么难吗. 还是他们喜欢这些灯红酒绿一掷千金的生活方式, 无法改变自己了呢? 但是明明在往那么大的危险里面走, 居然不肯回头, 又都是这么聪明的人, 实在让人很难理解.
