Beginners could read this outstanding book and gain much from it, but it's really aimed at those who think they know poker already.

Tommy Angelo's verbal inventiveness and dexterity enables him to identify, pinpoint and name nebulous poker concepts and essential matters that need addressing - like 'mum poker', which means really learning not to talk about your poker game during the game, or like the art of "fastfolding", when "you muck your hand as soon as you know you are beat." Why? "Because it's courteous and it reduces your information outflow."

Angelo's assumption that to learn "to win at poker you have to be very good at losing" might sound a peculiar concept, but knowing when to fold takes genuine skill. Amongst the praise this book has received came the comment from one reviewer who said it's the best poker psychology book ever written.
