Thread: Autographed Frugal Gambler

  1. #1
    I just got an email from the LVAdvisor informing me that autographed copies of Frugal Gambler can be had for $11.98. I figure everyone here will want to order two copies -- one for themselves and one for Rob Singer.

    Autographed by who?
    I'll miss Alan's profound stupidity.

    Thanks, but I'm holding off for Rob's third book.

    What I remember about Frugal Gambler is Jean did a great job of explaining how to work drawings.

    Is this price with autograph lower than the cover price?

    It's listed for $11.92 on Amazon. You can buy used from $4.00. This was her first book and there is no kindle edition. Her other books have kindle editions.

    I've never really understood the book signing thing. Isn't part of it that you get to meet the author and they get to write a short "personalized" note to you?

    I have several autographed books from authors I met and interviewed. My favorite is Peter Lynch who wrote One Up On Wall Street. Lynch was head of the Magellan mutual fund. I asked him to write his prediction for the markets for the next ten years. He did. And signed and dedicated to me. One day I'll sell it on eBay. What he predicted and what happened is pretty amazing. The book came out in the late 1980s.

    What's interesting here is how redietz somehow thinks getting emails from the LVA outfit actually enhances his "PR" perception. And the fact that he wants to believe there's any value in having an autograph of an outdated book on comps--including tips on how to dumpster-dive to search for tossed free buffet tickets and not to forget to bring a bag to buffets to stuff rolls into--should really help his image around here.

    Now that you mention it, I think we have to reopen the competition from the Mickey Crimm Road Pics thread:

    Peter Lynch, FTW:

    Yes but I think there's some value either potential or perceived from having the signature.
    The personally inscribed ones, like Alan's example, are the nice ones. I've happened into a few book signings at bookstores where the book being signed was something that a friend or relative would be interested in. In those cases the author asked me about the person and wrote a bit tailored to the recipient. It made an ok gift into something more special.

    That's exactly it, Rob. I passed along the note from the LVAdvisor to enhance everyone's perception of me. Let me continue. Checking my last 100 emails, I see I have messages from Kohl's, Smokey Bones, Sizzler, American casino guide, Benihana, JCPenney, and the Wynn. I hope everyone is duly impressed.

    It's extremely important that I cultivate the proper class status here. That's why I report staying at Main Street Station, eating at the Gold Coast buffet, and having the town of Centralia in my old high school district.

    I will endeavor to post pics of my 60th birthday party this week to further enhance my image. Someone, after all, needs to give "the world's greatest vp player" a run for his money.

    Yawwwn....just as I thought.

    Rob, in case anybody cares, I sent my credibility package to prove:

    1) Your claim I'm not the R.E.Dietz in the various contests and publications was a lie.
    2) Your claim I've made fraudulent claims was a lie.
    3) As usual, you don't know what you're talking about. Nothing new there.

    The "greatest vp player in the world" got caught lying. "Surprise, surprise" as Gomer Pyle used to say.

    Red, that's skeptical at best. Whatever your silly "pr pkg." that I made you send in is, it certainly isn't proof of any type that you've done what you keep trying to convince people you've done.

    How many times need you be schooled on the fact that if you do not provide proof of identity, your info is as worthless as mickey's stupid tall tales. You could easily be compiling documentation on someone else. And based on the amount of corn and predictable cliches you use in your neurotically spell-checked but rather poor writings, right now you really are only in the same league mickey resides in. And that ain't impressive.

    LOL -- I don't use spellcheck. I hate spellcheck. If I'm on a device and can turn it off without doing research, I will.

    Rob, do you understand the definition of lying? It's "deliberately untruthful; deceitful; false."

    Has Rob Stringer provided proof of identity?

    Who the fuck would pretend to be Rob Singer? People are only interested in proof of identity when there is some question regarding their claims.
    There is never any real questions about Robs claims since everyone knows he's full of shit most of the time.

    Getting a bit hot under the collar, axel? Be careful....or I'll make you identify your anonymous self and your unsubstantiated claims also. As we so often see from mickey, it doesn't take much for a coward to make up stories of bravado in gambling on the forums.

    Rob, with a statement like this you know yourself pretty good. Thanks for fessing up.
