Far more than a “business memoir,” What Are the Odds? is a raw, authentic account by a man many thought would never rise above his serial, addiction-fueled failures. Mike’s gripping narrative transports readers from his small-town tavern with its colorful cast of “Regulars” to Mexico and a drug deal gone awry. From Las Vegas casinos, where Mike won and lost fortunes as a professional gambler, to a jail-cell beatdown. From failed rehabs to his 20-year marriage, an ideal union decimated by addiction. And finally, to the redemption of the most shameful moment of his life.
An unvarnished account of the ravages of cocaine, crack, and gambling addiction, What Are the Odds? tells the improbable tale of how a small-town guy with a dream somehow made it a reality. More importantly, Mike opens up about the God who relentlessly chased him down, turning him from a casual believer to a passionate evangelist with an absolute, mathematical certainty that God is real.
What Are the Odds? will not only speak to entrepreneurs and those struggling with addiction, but also to anyone looking for a message of hope.

    What are the odds? One in one. This book is an amazing example of how the the One with amazing power works in all of us. Like Mike, I look at things mathematically. For a little while now, I’ve been writing down things that happen to me that can’t be explained as coincidence. I end each entry with, “I see you, God.” When you know He is there, you will know the chances of any miracle are always one in one. All of us have a calling and once you see God in your own life, you immediately see Him everywhere. This book is SO well written that I feel like I’m there with Mike the whole time. Edge-of-your-seat reading from cover to cover. The miracles in this book brought this grown man to tears more than once. I will make sure everyone I know reads this book and I hope you do, too. (I look forward to the third film reel, Mike.) I see you, God.

    Who knew that the My Pillow guy would write a book so engaging. His life is a testament.

    Thank you for sharing your story with the world. I know you will continue to have many life successes with God by your side. I hope the many lives you save, through Gods voice, reveal themselves to you because you are truly an inspiration and deserve to feel that “full heart” joy everyday.

    Easy and interesting read. Great life story. Could be inspirational to a lot of people. Glad he stands by his convictions. Wish he would have mentioned if he kept his promise to his ex wife and if he married Kendra.
