Recommends it for: anyone who wants to get beyond the mechanics of playing poker

Early in the book, Ian says that if you need to learn about pot odds and when to bluff, this isn't the first book you should read, but if you want to learn how to steel yourself from the ups and downs of that come with a game where luck plays a huge part, you need to read this book. I've read few of standard poker books, Harrington and Theory of Poker, and worked my way through a number of forums online, but none of them cover the ground that Ian does.

If you want to know why this is an important
Excellent book focusing on the precursors of success rather than the technical aspects of poker play. A lot of the ideas cross over into other areas of life and give good guidance for those who wish to excel in any area.

A good book but very repetitive. Read the first chapter and you can move on.

Play for long-term, focus on making the right decision.
