A rare little gamblers' vade mecum; each page is essentially a chart showing the betting odds in various games. On the inside of the front cover the author acknowledges another work as his primary source: "You Can't Lose" by Oliver Odson, PhD. On the dedication page Brussel refers to Odson's work as a "remarkable manuscript on gambling science." Since we can find no record of this author or title on OCLC/Worldcat, it is likely that the manuscript was never published. Only 3 copies of this original US edition of "Odds" found on OCLC/Worldcat.
