Probably most known for his contributions to blackjack, Peter wrote the book The Theory of Blackjack: The Complete Card Counters Guide to the Game of 21. This book was as ground breaking as Peter Thorp's book Beat The Dealer, about counting cards. The Theory of Blackjack was a huge information resource for researchers and players about card counting. He introduced the betting correlation (BC) and the playing efficiency (PE) factors into card counting. These two factors allowed for an accurate estimation of a system's win rate potential, in any game, on any betting spread. This helped improve the game for card counters. He described methods that could be used to evaluate the differences between single and multi level counting systems. He also discussed the value of using more than one count.
In 1991 Griffin published another book title Extra Stuff : Gambling Ramblings. This second book went deeper into the more advance concepts. some of which included proportional wagering and variable payoff games. He continued to write and do research throughout his life and continued working at California State University until his death in 1998.
