In the game of Blackjack, the term "double down" means the player option of doubling their bet and receiving one and only one more card.  This is of course a good deal if the player has a good hand.  It is even better if the player has a good hand and the dealer has a bad hand.

For the normal game of blackjack, the player is only allowed to double down, or split pairs, or surrender (if the house allows this option) after the first two cards are dealt.  If the player instead decides to hit and ask for an extra card -with the option of asking for more - then the player gives up their right to double down or split since now the player will be at 3 cards.

There are some variations on the game of blackjack, such as Spanish 21 and or Super Fun 21 where the casino may allow double downs, splits or surrenders even after 3 or more cards.

Does this book tell you how to win? No. It does tell you how you might get the odds in your favor, and gives some strategy tables for some of the more common blackjack games played in casinos. It also tries to explain using math and simulations why getting the odds in your favor may indeed improve your play, but why no one we know of can guarantee winning all of the time.
