Ace on the River is not a typical "how to" book, but anyone with any interest in poker will find it interesting. There is so much more involved in being a successful poker player than knowing how to play the game, and this book will take you through many of the issues that you may face. This is one of the best books on the intangibles of playing poker.
This was a no-nonsense approach to playing winning poker. Phil dove right into what goes on in his head when sitting down at the poker table. He tells you how to handle different types of opponents, simplifies the math, and goes over the various situations that arise in almost every game.
Keep a pen and pad handy because you will want to take notes. This is one of the better poker books out there.
I think I may have been expecting a little too much from a book about one of the most exciting and interesting companies to ever come around.
It started out OK as we heard about how Google sprouted from an acorn, but about a quarter of the way through I lost interest as the minutia in the details was too much.
Google fanatics will probably enjoy it. I preferred to use my other audibe.com credits and move on. Perhaps I gave up too soon and will one day revisit.
