That may seem like a hole, and the AI thing is almost certainly
a scam, but there /are/ in fact legitimate books on handicapping
and other potentially positive-EV gambling games like blackjack,
poker, sports betting, and others. The authors of such
books generally can and do earn a living gambling; but books are
even higher EV--less investment, lower risk, more predictable.
I wouldn't trust such a book written by someone who didn't make
his primary living using the techniques rather than writing about
them, but there are indeed people who do both.
