Interestingly, Dink recommends the book ahead of the movie.

I could be wrong but I believe Willis is an avid sportsbettor, so maybe that is how

Bruce Willis is good friends with Joe Lupo, one of the key executives at the Borgata in Atlantic City.

Lupo is the former race and sports book manager at the old Stardust Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas.

Liked the book a lot. Met Beth at a spring game. Real funny gal and a cutie too.

I didn't care for it. mainly because the characters are more interesting in life then they were in the movie. Usually it is the other way around.
