Some 'Amazon' reviews:


This book changed the way I play after reading just the first chapter!It helps you look at other players in a different light and helps adjust your play accordingly.Brilliant!!!


One of the few books that works for us in the UK:

One of the problems with being a UK-based poker player is that, whilst the game here is mostly played pot-limit, most of the decent poker books are written quite specifically for limit games. Alan Schoonmaker's excellent book is one of the exceptions. Although it does use limit games to provide the examples (which means that you do need to understand at least the basics of limit play to get the best out of it), the nature of the subject makes this much less of a problem than in books about tactical play. The bottom line is that reading this book has improved my game dramatically.



Brilliantly written:

I don't want to write a long review about this book so I'll keep it short. If you are an advanced poker player and have various other books that give you starting hand charts and advice on how to play certain hands, but you want to move onto a higher level of thought while playing, then this is the book for you. Brilliantly written, concise, detailed and eye-opening, it added to my game plus infinitum. One of the all time greatest poker books ever written.
