Dice have been around for a long time. For about 5,000 years in fact. Keith was recently interviewed on the Simon Mayo Show on BBC Radio 2, about his forthcoming book THE POCKET GUIDE TO DICE AND DICE GAMES, which is due to be published in March 2012.
With photographs of dice from his personal collection and illustrations by the talented Laura Matine, this book is a pot-pouri of history, magic tricks, tips about playing dice for fun, and important information about the mathematics of odds. It is a must-read if you are contemplating a trip to a casino.
Check out the video about the book.
