Highly entertaining if one is familiar with poker and the TV/Internet/casino poker world. If you like Vince Van Patten's World Poker Tour TV commentary, you'll love this book. Gave me many chuckles, some guffaws, and a few real belly laughs. The LA/NY Times reviewers apparently didn't get the references; seems as if they couldn't move beyond the author's background/literary accomplishments. Maybe they would have appreciated it more if published under a pseudonym.
