Recommended Books in Computers, Gambling, and Mathematics

I hope you have enjoyed my book Calculated Bets: Computers, Gambling, and Mathematical Modeling to Win. If so, you may also enjoy some of my favorite books on related topics in gambling, mathematics, and computer science. I have also listed the funniest books I know, in case you liked my sense of humor.


Gambling is, by definition, an activity designed to make money for the people running the activity. Note that this does not include me or you. Still, gambling is a fascinating activity, and perhaps the most popular application of mathematics for the layman.


Writers are sometimes asked which books influenced them the most. These books are the funniest I have ever read, and I hope you can see some of their influence in Calculated Bets.
