This is the first poker book I've ever read so I don't know how it compares to the others that are out there. My mom found an autographed copy at a garage sale! How random is that? Anyway, I consider myself to be a pretty savvy poker player so I was curious what I would learn. At the end of the day, I didn't really learn much. There were a lot of "hand scenarios" with pot odds and player tendencies, but those can only help you to a point. So much of poker is the "feel" you get from your opponents when you're sitting around the table, at least it is for me because I don't play online. I guess I did learn more about hand percentages and pot odds, which is helpful, but at the end of the day it's about the mental game and you can't get that from a book in my opinion.
