Horrible Narration!

I usually don't write reviews, but I feel sorry for the contributors of this book. They all great authors and have a great amount of knowledge to give to poker players. However, it think it is a shame for all of the authors that Jonathan Little narrated the book himself. I am not putting him down for anything except his voice over of this book. He should have hired a voice over artist.
Honestly, I have not been able to listen to any book Jonathan Little has narrated, and I have bought everyone he has put on Audible. I want to listen and study what he and the other authors have written, but I can't follow his choppy and disconnected narration.
I can't not recommend buying the book, but be ready for a long process trying to get through it. Great writing and content, but the worst narration I have ever tried to follow.

Great Smattering of Poker Information

I enjoyed the expertise that went into this poker book. It was nice to hear from some of the best poker players in the world describing some of their tips and tricks for various, fundamental aspects of poker. As an audio book it does work, however, when hand ranges or hand descriptions are done, it is a bit more difficult to follow along and that is where a physical copy of the book is probably a bit more helpful. However, given the realities of today's go-go-go society, it is much more convenient to listen to this book as an audio book. Highly recommended for a good general crash course on good poker info.

Decent but he has better titles

packed with good info but also has a few chapters that seemed out of place. for example the hour long chapter on hypnosis.

Impossible to listen to

I was recommended this book and will by the kindle edition but the Audible version is just horrible to try and listen to. The reader has almost certainly set the device that he recorded his speech on to record as he speaks and it means that he has lost the first words of every sentence. I couldn't listen to more than a couple of sentences, the book needs to be re recorded without the auto record setting as it will just send you insane!

Great book, awful audio

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

The audio quality was very blippy, this will drive you insane as you listen to it.

What did you like best about this story?

The topics covered here are better than any other poker book I've read thus far.

How could the performance have been better?

Audio quality, surely someone checks this before it's confirmed live?

Great book, dodgy audio

The content of the book is very good and unlocked a ton of new things for me even as a rank beginner. Only thing that let it down is the very blippy audio. I hope Audible can get a better copy
