Harry Anderson, Actor: Night Court. Harry Anderson was born on October 14, 1952 in Newport, Rhode Island, USA as Harry Laverne Anderson. He was an actor, known for Night Court (1984), It (1990) and Tales from the Crypt (1989). He was married to Elizabeth Morgan and Leslie Pollack.

Here in this funny, insightful and deliciously wicked book Harry Anderson unveils the tricks behind cons, swindles, and wagers that separate fools and their money in streets, bars, carnivals, casios and racetracks every day.
  • You probably are a sucker to buy this book. I enjoy Harry Anderson and the book is amusing, but pretty thin on actual games you can't lose. In fact, it gives more coverage to games you cannot win. I was hoping for a book on what Harry Anderson calls "Cunning Stunts" but there are only a few in the book and a couple of those require cheating. On the other hand, if you think you can win at a casino or at 3 card monte, this book is a fun and simple way to show you just how wrong you are and will easily save you twice what you pay for it.

  • This is a book that I wanted since I was a kid. Finally got it as an adult.

    But this book and add it to your collection. Not everyone is into it, but I made this book pay for itself. Make that your goal. Buy this book and make it cost neutral buy making this book work for you.

  • Great book Harry the hat have a interesting perspective. Every magician should have it in their collection. Good work i

  • this book is fantastic! I cant put it down and its a book I can read over and over

  • if you are looking for some stunts and bets to pull on friends, don't buy this book. very disappointed in this book. i guess the suckers are people who bought the book.

  • Harry Anderson won acclaim as the affable judge in Night Court. He was also well known for his cameos on Cheers, where he swindled Norm, Cliff and crew with relative ease. Harry Anderson was also a successful magician, and has hosted several cable specials on the subject.

    Before all of that, Harry Anderson was a con man, and a good one at that. In this little volume, Anderson sets forth a number of entertaining cons, and strategies that can be used at the bar. For the most part, these swindles are not going to make you rich. In fact, these cons are immediately apparent for most people. If they are not apparent from the start, they will be apparent at the conclusion. It is because of this that Mr. Anderson declares that you must perform these tricks in an entertaining way, or else you might run into some well deserved violence.

    This book is not supposed to be a definitive list of street crime. What this book really represents is a system of thinking, a system that you can use to create more of your own games that can provide some fun at the bar.

    Anderson also has a decent field guide to avoiding scams. Casinos, carnivals, and street cons are all described. For many people, this should be required reading.

    This book is extremely entertaining. Harry Anderson writes in a quick and witty style that gives the reader the sense that Anderson is a throwback to the speakeasies and mobster era.

    If you're looking to make money scamming John Q. Public, don't buy this book. If you're looking for a quick and entertaining read that is fairly informative and will provide you some interesting time killers, get this book.

  • I first read "Games You Can't Lose" by Harry Anderson over a decade ago. This book sparked my interest in gambling and betting (maybe not a good thing...). That having been said, "Games You Can't Lose" is an amusing little overview of games of chance which is chock full of proposition bets and tricks that would work perfectly at the local tavern to win you a couple of drinks. Anderson has amusing games, such as playing poker by picking the cards you want right out of the deck! (Read the book for the angle.) When you see Anderson playing Judge Stone in Night Court or the recurring bit part in Cheers as "Harry the Hat" you will realize that he really was not acting!

  • Not great . . . but ok. For what it is, its well written, but its too broad and shallow to appeal to most. The most interesting tidbits are on the con games you can do yourself. The casino advice is useless - would have been nice to recommend a few specifically for blackjack and craps. I like Harry Anderson, but this book is not one that I would recommend.
