    Story
    "Surprisingly interesting and informative."
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Definately recommend to all; even non-poker players. Great science-based insights for everyone who wants to be better at any activity and improve oneself at setting and accomplishing goals.


    What other book might you compare The Mental Game of Poker to and why?

    Jared's book and methods are to the mental side of poker what Doyle's Super Systew is to the strategy side of poker.


    What did you like about the performance? What did you dislike?

    Cadence was well metered but the alternate voice sounded mechanical and contrived. Should have used actual players or someone else's voice.


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

    No. Too much info for 1 sitting.

    "Psychology of the holes in your game"
    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.

    Narrator spoke in monotone and very quickly at times, not leaving enough time to digest the concepts he's talking about. Have to repeat over and over

    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

    "The Ultimate Guide to the Mental Game"

    Quite simply, Jared Tendler is the best coach for the mental game. He is to poker as Bob Rotella is to golf.



    Its probably one of the most important aspects to master in poker, as it will affect your play no matter what your skill level. And having a solid mental game will get you on the right track if you are still learning.

    "Best book for poker players."

    Although I will repeat what others said before, this book is really the ultimate book when it comes to handling your mind when playing poker (and not just for that).

    This book will teach you so many different things that can be applied in anything you wish to get good at.

    Definitely recommend it to anyone

    Lots to think about here but this provides some v common scenarios and traps

    That players fall into. The book can help prevent you falling into these traps.
