  This is for real.

  The book is called: Chances: And How To Take Them by Zappa
  It was written by Frank's (Frank V. Zappa) dad in 1966 (copyright date) and is dedicated to his wife Rose-Marie "Whose Kindness, patience and understanding has guided me through the many years of our married life. She knows not how to gamble but she does know when and how to take a chance."
  One of the freakiest things about this book of gamblings odds is the illustrations that appear throughout. They are almost identical in style to the illustrations by A.West in the RFZB.
  Here are the various chapters:
1) Probabilities
2) Systems
3) Keno
4) The One-Armed Bandits
5) Roulette
6) Dice or Craps
7) Poker
8) Horse Racing and Sports Betting
9) Black Jack or Baccarat
10) Miscellaneuos Dice and Card games
11) Mathematics of Possibilites

  The back cover has a picture of him and this info:
  Frank V. Zappa is presently teaching as an instructor in Mathematics.
  As a product of an Era now called the "Depression", Mr. Zappa has held many postions which required Mathematics as the basic knowledge, so that his experience has been enormous in the Applied and Theoretical phases of the subject.
  Mr. Zappa is a graduate of the University of North Carolina. He has also taken additional work of Washington College in Chestertown, Md.; John Hopkins University and the University of California.
  Mr. Zappa has been a member of the foloowing Professional Societies:
1. American Metorological Society
2. American Society for Metals
3. American Rocket Society
4. National Council of Mathematics Techers of Calif.

  All wording sic. It was published by Art-Craft Printers in Ontario, CA in 1966. A friend found this at a garage sale for 50 cents and knew I'd love it.
