Description - The Odds by Chad Millman

"One wild read" (Rick Reilly, Sports Illustrated) about a unique city trying to find itselfand about three gamblers who win, lose, and risk everything during the college basketball season. 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 schoolgambling. 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. "
