Publisher's Summary

If you know Phil Hellmuth then you either love him or hate him!

His rants, tirades, and lines like "I can dodge bullets, baby" and "If it weren't for luck, I'd win them all" are epic and have earned him the nickname "Poker Brat." However, whether you love him or hate him, he is undoubtedly the greatest poker player of our time. Phil is a global poker icon who holds every record at the World Series of Poker, including an extraordinary 14 world championships.

In Poker Brat Phil paints a picture of his early Midwestern life, in which he struggled mightily in grade school and high school, but always had aspirations to do something great. Phil takes you from the low lows of his life to the high highs, and shows you how he developed an unhealthy ego along the way, which eventually turned into his "Poker Brat" persona.

In Poker Brat, Phil shares his own powerful tips and techniques, the ones that he used to set his goals, and then he shows how he achieved those goals as he climbed to the summit of the poker world.

interesting... BUT

I like poker, and have respect for Phil. His life story, especially the early years are interesting. I wish there was more depth into what was going on mentally during his tournament runs, and how he preps, and how a big time poker player financially handles the swings. Still worth the read/listen. Warning, towards the end, alot of names and products and whatnot, that aside, still entertaining.

Would have loved his wife's counterpoint to some of the events. Would have been a great touch.

Best Poker Autobiography Ever

I rarely write reviews but felt compelled to write as a poker enthusiast. This is by far the best poker autobiography I have ever read.

What a legend.

A great listen while driving (I drive a lot ).

He does spoil some of the content with his headings. Probably the only bad thing about this book.

After all these years his passion for poker and its community is still heard in his voice and at the table. What amazing opportunities this man has had. A must read for any motivated poker player.
