In recent years women have emerged as a powerful force in poker rooms throughout the world, whether online or land based. If you are one of these women, no matter what level you are playing or in what venue, this book is for you. Maryann Morrison has masterfully compiled the stories of 16 women who run the gamut from renowned professional to accomplished amateur to enthusiastic beginner. The result is a virtual feast if you have craved insights, strategies and tips for not only surviving but thriving on "the feminine side of the felt". You'll feel like you've found a source of support, an increased sense of confidence and a knowing that you're not alone. An unexpected bonus is that this book offers wisdom for women everywhere which extends far beyond the scope of poker. As contributor Cat Hulbert said in her own book "Outplaying the Boys" (another must-buy), "poker shows a person's true character." As such, the wealth of advice in this gem of a book applies to all of life's endeavors.
