    Story
    "Very Informative"
    Where does The Mental Game of Poker rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    It's my favorite book on poker psychology. My background is in psychology and I have a graduate degree in it. That doesn't make me immune to my own mental game flaws and. Jared is well qualified to teach on the matter. He presents some very common mental leaks in an easy to understand way and provides practical feedback on addressing the leaks.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of The Mental Game of Poker?

    The whole book is helpful. The leaks Jared covers are so common you're bound to identify with at least one. It's like having coaching sessions with him to read this,


    Have you listened to any of Jared Tendler’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    He's good at this. The material is great and he reads it well for a non-professional reader.


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

    Yes. After the overview I couldn't wait to get to the chapters that were specific to my own mental game weaknesses.

    It felt like arduous plodding. I really felt it could have been shortened by half.

    Yes, stop reading it.

    "Poorly told"
    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    Something more about poker and less about bad beats


    Has The Mental Game of Poker turned you off from other books in this genre?

    yes


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    everything was 1. 2.- 3. enough


    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from The Mental Game of Poker?

    everything


    Any additional comments?

    Book was boring. Poker is a game of patience. Everyone suffers bad beats. We all know that Nobody enjoys them. Some people enjoy talking about them, but nobody enjoys listening to them. The side stories stunk

    Story
    "An advertisement disguised as a book"
    Would you try another book from Jared Tendler and Barry Carter and/or Jared Tendler?

    no


    What could Jared Tendler and Barry Carter have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

    It would have been great if there had been actual content in this book instead of the constant endorsements by former students.


    Any additional comments?

    The book is not a total waste, but it does not bring anything new to the table. The constant client endorsements made it more of and advertisement for his services instead of a book that could stand on its own.
