Publisher's Summary

In this informative and entertaining book, learn from Cousin Sal how not to gamble your life away - along with many other life lessons - so you don't have to learn the hard way.

Over the last 40 years, Cousin Sal has made bets with doctors, lawyers, teachers, agents, bookies, writers, comedians, radio DJs, TV producers, baseball players, front office executives, bandleaders, movie stars, publicists, weed lab owners, hedge fund operators, and even professional wrestlers. From his early days growing up in Brooklyn and Long Island flipping baseball cards to now hosting podcasts and TV shows and managing several offshore accounts we don't talk about, Cousin Sal has truly become the average American sports fan's go to source for gambling tips. 

So here's how not to do it....

With hilarious tales of love and loss, winning and (a lot) of losing, crazy family and fatherhood, and a life saga that inspired the Phil Collins' song, "Against All Odds", Cousin Sal has now written THE Vegas super-system, MIT-algorithmic, sharp-approved book for how to gamble like a pro - or at least not how not to go broke and lose your kids to Child Protective Services.

Critic Reviews

"If you think the way I do, then you must be asking yourself if this truly is the most ridiculous cover for a book you've ever seen. Just wait...when you open the book, it actually makes the cover look normal. It's not dark yet, but it's getting there. Cousin Sal is a very smart and brilliant man with as humble a heart as I've been around. He wants to make others happy and sometimes he does with his checkbook. But I am truly lucky to call him a friend. For life. You will love this book." (Tony Romo)

"For the last two decades, Cousin Sal has been the Gambling Butch Cassidy to my Gambling Sundance Kid - and that's a crucial analogy, because they both died at the end of the movie." (Bill Simmons)

"Sal's a good father and husband, and I have never seen him take a drink. But he makes up for it by being the most degenerate gambler I have ever seen." (Johnny Knoxville)

"A rollicking...account of the foibles of a man who’ll bet on anything." (Kirkus)

Harry Sucks

Despite having to hear about Harry, this is the best book since Saving Private Ryan.

Silly, Fun, and Occasionally Heartwarming

if you follow Sal on his numerous television appearances or podcast episodes, you will know what to expect. Sal share some of his best stories and memories from a fun life, and I enjoyed every chapter.

I can’t believe it

I actually listened to this whole book in one evening. I like when he said Dicky Barrett was in the Squirrel Nut Zippers.

This book is ridiculous and a little redundant if you’ve been a degenerate listener like me.

It’s great tho. Thanks Sal

Hilarious

Hilarious and endlessly entertaining. I love that Sal voices it as well. You can tell it’s not read from a professional, which makes it all the more relatable and endearing. Wish I had more from Cousin Sal

Great listen. If you like Cousin Sal, read this!

Great listen. Funny stories. I could not put it down. Cousin Sal did not disappoint. The ending was a good cliff hanger for the next book.

a very interesting book and quite funny

I'm glad that I purchased this book. I know nothing about gambling nor did I know who sal Inoco is. from an interview Jimmy Kimmel was doing with his cousin was so funny I wanted to hear the cousin's book and I'm glad I did.

Great book with hilarious stories...

Great book filled with hilarious stories. However, I've looked everywhere and can't find any footage of the John Kasay prank - if someone who has it is reading this send it over!
