Dai Vernon's Further Inner Secrets of Card Magic
The third book in Vernon's famous Inner Secrets of Card Magic series.
This short volume has more of a gambling-theme than the others in the trilogy with routines around poker and Three Card Monte. A whole chapter on dealing seconds will leave you with plenty to practice, and we see a lot of coverage of palming notes -- specifically for the Gambler's Palm of course. There is ample content in this book unrelated to gambling and more suited to be called simply magic, so give it a read and I'm sure you'll find something to enjoy!
While we don't hear directly from Vernon within these pages, we very much do get a glimpse at the level of mastery he had in card magic.
Where to buy?
Last I checked, you should be able to pick up Dai Vernon's Further Inner Secrets of Card Magic at Amazon.
