About the Author

Mark The Red Harlan was born in Rawlins, Wyoming, and has lived exactly the life you d expect as a result. Armed with a degree in Applied Mathematics (from a university he loathes so much that he refuses to even utter the name), he fell headlong into a 20–year stint in the Silicon Valley s computer industry.
Red s professional experience includes human–interface work at Apple Computer, development of the bidding schema used by eBay, overseeing application development at Danger (makers of the T–Mobile Sidekick), as well as co–founding CyberArts Licensing (suppliers of the poker software seen on the MANSION and GamesGrid sites).
At the tender age of 8, he won a pinewood derby competition in the Cub Scouts, giving him his first heavy swig of victory that would forever warp his oh–so–soft–and–pliable mind. Under the influence of this experience, he started playing poker that same year ( might as well win money if you re going to win ) and became good enough by 2005 to be a net money winner in that year s World Series of Poker.
Red is a member of the American Society of Journalists and Authors and has an extensive writing background ranging from penning InfoWorld s Notes from the Fringe during the heyday of the Internet, to being lead author of the book he thinks everyone should own (his mom does): Winning at Internet Poker For Dummies (Wiley).
Red maintains a Web site of poker articles at www.redsdeal.com and welcomes non–spam e–mail at RedsDeal+HEFD@gmail.com (be sure to include the +).

This is a very good book on learning the very basics of Texas Hold'em. It goes in to great detail every aspect of the game from learning the different hands to learning the rules of the game. Well recommended for the beginner.

After deciding to form a ladies poker night I bought this to learn how to play. It's a good book but you need to plough through quite a lot to really get to grips. Some simple questions like 'can I pass anytime' are hard to find. However a good glossary and a table with all the winning hands. Playing on line (no real money) once I had read this made it all make more sense. It's a good place to start though I thinki could have really done with the 'idiots guide' really!!

As a complete "Hold'em" newbie I've been looking for a good introduction to the game. This one seems to fit the bill, but like the 'Mammoth' book that I also reviewed, it's not properly formatted for the Kindle in that the pictures of poker hands are half missing even in landscape mode! It's quite inexcusable and hopefully will be rectified (perhaps by the time you read this!) Of course I was able to use 'manage my kindle' to get a refund but it's just frustrating.

So it's **** for the content, but a single * for the kindle version.

I'd better order the paperback!

Not read the whole book, but what I have read has been very helpful, gives some good advice on how to hold your game, I went and played Texas Hold'Em, and got down to the last 14; well pleased... worth the money, a good buy.

I bought two copies; one for a friend and one to keep. I found it easy to read. I play a lot of Hold Em, but there are some useful reminders of what to do / not do when playing. Something to dip into, regularly, rather than read from cover to cover. Recommended.

I was introduced to Texas Hold'em by my work mates. I needed help with the basic strategy and this book helped a lot. My performance, and enjoyment of the game, has improved quite a bit when I apply the authors recommendations.

This is one book i'd highly recomend for anyone who wants to learn how to play poker, i've been threw about 4 other books and 2 dvd's on trying to know how to play it and none of them have helped me understand it more than this one did.

Texas Hold'em is an easy game to play and loads of fun when playing with family, friends or just about anyone.

This book has 1 answer to it ..... you learn how to play poker and it gives you great tips for when you do play it too.

Well worth the price.
