    The mental game may be more important in poker than in any other form of competition. It's one of the only games in the world where you can play perfectly and lose-again and again. Hundreds of poker players have turned to mental game coach Jared Tendler's revolutionary approach to help them play their best, no matter how badly they're running. In this book you'll find simple, step-by-step instructions and proven techniques to permanently fix problems such as tilt, handling variance, emotional control, confidence, fear, and motivation.

    Would you listen to The Mental Game of Poker again? Why?

    Absolutely. It's not necessarily a complex set of instructions but definitely something to review and gauge your progress.


    Would you be willing to try another one of Jared Tendler’s performances?

    The performance of the book was a little rough. Not the best recording and Jared doesn't seem all that comfortable behind the Mic. That may be beneficial to the reader as it sounds like you're listening to a doctor talk to you.

    Ask the great poker players how they'd play a hand and the answer is always "it depends." That answer can be infuriating. But guess what? It really does depend. The key to becoming a great poker player is in knowing what it depends on. At last there's a book that gives you that answer. Poker is a game of so many variables; table position, flop texture, the number of players in a hand, the personalities of your opponents, and so much more.

  • The Party Is Over: How Republicans Went Crazy, Democrats Became Useless, and the Middle Class Got Shafted

    There was a time, not so very long ago, when perfectly rational people ran the Republican Party. So how did the party of Lincoln become the party of lunatics? That is what this book aims to answer. Fear not, the Dems come in for their share of tough talk - they are zombies, a party of the living dead. Mike Lofgren came to Washington in the early eighties - those halcyon, post-Nixonian glory days - for what he imagined would be a short stint on Capitol Hill.

    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Absolutely. To anyone who believes that any candidate is the path to a new America, read this and understand why you're wrong.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of The Party Is Over?

    I hate to ruin the surprise for the true believers...


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes.

  • The Last Gunfight: The Real Story of the Shootout at the O.K. Corral - and How It Changed the American West

    For the first time ever, the full story of the Gunfight at the O.K. Corral - not only what really happened but why, and how mythology has led us to completely misinterpret the real history of the frontier. Combining cinematic storytelling with prodigious research, The Last Gunfight upends conventional wisdom about what the West was really like, who the Earps and Doc Holliday really were, and what actually happened in Tombstone on that cold day in October 1881.

    I truly could not put this down. Whether a casual fan of this legendary story or a historian of frontier America, this book will provide a very new and thorough look at the events before during and after the gun fight.
