Any poker player will love this book. Feb 13, 2008
I have read this book cover to cover and still find myself picking it up from time to time just for the facts, reminders, and history it shares. This is a great book and one which every poker player must have if not read.
The Perfect Poker Book Jan 7, 2008
This book is amazing. First off the box itself is very clever; mimicking a pack of cards. The book discusses the begining of Poker, where it is now, and where it's headed. It's a great, compact compilation of history and rules for all types of poker games. I'm sure there are other more complete and bigger books out there but this book is perfect for what it is. Hands down a good buy.
Great book Nov 20, 2007
At last !! I was looking for something else than text books on how to improve one's poker. I could not find anything until I discovered this great illustrated books on the poker history, its legends and its myths.
