When it comes to gambling, information is king. There is no better way to put yourself in a position to win than learning as much as you can about the game itself, as well as theories and strategies associated with them. Many of these games have been around for centuries, well, at least some sort of version of them have been, and there is something to be said for the collective wisdom of centuries of game play being passed on through time.
With that in mind, below is a list of books that you must read if you are truly serious about playing craps at a high level. Some of these books will focus heavily on theory, while other will delve into odds and percentages. Either way, the point is to assimilate various factions of all of these books to develop a game plan for your own strategy.
