Great Narrator

Narrated very well. Information was very helpful and insightful. Some poker books are narrated by people who seem to just read well but have no understanding of the content...Neil Shah came off so well that it was very refreshing and he helped you completely buy in to the content. GREAT JOB!!

The harder you work the luckier you get

Would you listen to Final Table again? Why?

Certainly, as a poker player I am always reviewing the better literature on the subject. Although this is a relatively short book, it has many relevant points. Coming from a young player who has had success at the highest levels it also has credentials. Read it again to help solidify new ideas.

What did you like best about this story?

It was written in a very frank manner and common sense view point. Jonathan shows a lot of maturity for a young player and shares the view of poker of todays young guns, and for me, at 60+, I love to have access to a younger players philosophy.

What about Neil Shah’s performance did you like?

very easy to listen to and well read.

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

yes, at only about 4 hours it was an easy listen

Any additional comments?

I was pleasantly surprised to find that this author selected two of my favorite authors as major influences on his own game. Although short on actual hand examples, the book opens up the thinking of young aggressive poker players and makes clear what I have always believed, its not how long you have been playing poker but how many hours you put into it, how many hands you play and how serious you take learning the game. Internet players gain years of experience in only months of play.
