Great Blackjack Books

Blackjack School

The game of blackjack combines the excitement of gambling on a game of chance and the high intellect of complicated mathematical strategies that require high skill.

There are plenty of resources online that offer beginners and advanced players information about the game, mathematical analysis of the game and strategy advice for optimal play.
