One of the best, and most enjoyable, poker books I've ever read. 15 May 2008
By Pathfinder - Published on
Format: Paperback
I'm a longtime poker player. This is simply a great book--great stories, and lots of great advice. I've read tons of other ones, by all the great names. This is better written than almost all of them, because after his poker career, the Poker Pigeon went on to have a successful career as a thriller and mystery writer. I guarantee you'll enjoy this book.

Specious 13 Jun. 2009
By Denise Smith - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition
Not a bad read, but take his advice with a big grain (or lump) of salt. His "secret" way to win at dice and his espousal that no one can win playing no-limit poker is ridiculous. I'm also skeptical when he writes about his days playing in Vegas and keeps saying that the downtown casinos (Nugget, 4 Queens, Binion's) are at that "famous corner of Fremont and Las Vegas Blvd." Wrong, Anonymous! You're a good three blocks off and if you had actually spent any length of time in Vegas you'd know that. Additionally, the whole "Anonymous" author thing makes me think he put that in so that the names he drops of living gamblers can't come forward and dispute his many fictitious stories.
