I was wondering if anyone has suggestions for good gamblingbooks to read for entertainment, not for strategy. I already own dozens of those.

"The Smart Money" by Michael Konik has to be one of my favorite reads ever. I've probably read the thing 20 times. If anyone has recommendation for that type of book I would appreciate it.
