Critic Reviews

Tommy Angelo's 2007 Elements of Poker is already a classic. After decades of experience as a player and a coach, Angelo identified 144 of poker's "elements" — stuff like A-Game, Tilt, Bankroll, Position, Running Good and Running Bad, Awareness, and much more. Witty and wise, stern and compassionate, Angelo's book is a reassuring guide for a challenging game. 

Angelo recently revised and narrated an audiobook version of Elements. At seven hours and seventeen minutes, there's plenty of valuable material to (re)discover. Despite the absence of conceptual charts and illustrations — all available on his website — the audiobook is as accessible and relevant as ever. 

As Angelo's readers already well know, Elements of Poker is less about playing poker than about how to be a poker player.

Great version of a great book!

I read Elements of Poker when it was brand-new. I had heard many of these elements direct from the author even before then, but the book put everything into a great perspective. Now, the audiobook gives everyone the opportunity to hear him deliver this updated version straight to the "reader." There's nothing like it--I think it's always the case that an audiobook "read by the author" contains details, nuance, and enthusiasm for the subject matter that makes it a cut above.

Also, it is worth pointing out that even a number of years post-publication, the elements still stand up. This book is solid poker content, but I'm still struck by its applicability to other games, other professions, even everyday life. Get it. "Read" it. You'll enjoy it and you'll learn from it.

Improved my play immediately!

Best poker book out there- even for those more experienced cash game players, you will learn at least 1 essential new tactic to improve your game. Tommy’s voice is also one of the best for audiobooks. I wish he would write another- I would buy it in a heartbeat.
