    Default Wilde Is The Joker

    There is a new book dealing in a humorous way about gambling -- especially internet gambling.

    Some background: I am the manager of Gambling Grumbles and Josh Wilde, who authored the book, (hence the title: "Wilde is the Joker"), has written satires since 2002 which appeared on various websites, especially those which are part of the Gambling City Group.

    I can only take credit for the introduction to the book. All of the humor and satires are Josh's work. He really knows no sacred cows, going after everything from politics to Harry Potter to the Fourth of July. What they all have in common is that they, in one way or the other, are connected to gambling and most of them are about internet casinos. He often takes aim at casinos which cheat players (charges of "bonus abuse" are rampant) but also goes after players who try to cheat casinos.

    If you are interested in a good laugh (in fact, a lot of them) you can find "Wilde is the Joker" at either Create Space (an Amazon daughter company) at or on Amazon itself. The advantage of Create Space is that it usually ships books more quickly and at a lower cost. Amazon, however, not only offers the physical book but the much less expensive Kindle version and if you don't have a Kindle, it will give you a free app which you can download to your computer(s), Smart Phone(s) or tablet(s). Most Amazon sites (eg: Germany, Italy, the UK) offer it -- just do a search) but if your country has no Amazon site, you can get it at

    Are you going to be offended by anything in the book? Probably. After all, Josh begins it with this announcement:

    Warning! Some remarks in this book may offend:

    *The US Senate, the US House of Representatives, at least 5 current or former Presidents.

    On the other hand, no animals were killed or injured during the writing of this book.
