I know some are keen on how bookmakers operate and their history. Here are some good links from the UK:

Simon Nott an on course bookmaker for 30 years in UK and a good humoured writer on real betting matters in the ring is about to publish his new book:
Tales From The Betting Ring Skint Mob!

More details at:

The UK price is 9.99 and Simon will let you know postage to USA if you email him at:
simonnott@yahoo.co.uk

For those who like stories about the glory days of on course bookmaking you may want to have a look at:

Cubone was brought up in the UK Birmingham area of the razor gang Peaky Blinders who ran bookmaking in the 1920s.

This subject has been made into a tv series:

in England the bookmakers sit with the queen, in the USA they sit in jail if they get caught.
