Andy Bellin has written an engaging book that tells of both the highs and lows (pitfalls) from this lifestyle and what can be a destructively addictive game. He is also able to presents the statistics of the game in an easily digestable manner.
A great book.
Andy Bellin has a simple, easy to read prose style. The book proceeds at great pace mixing personal experiences and anecdotes very effectively, providing an interesting and illuminating insight into the world of poker and addiction. I was gripped from the first chapter and read the book very quickly. It is often funny, sometimes chilling and slightly scary but it always holds your interest. It is also thought provoking as it prompts readers to consider their own attitude to gambling and addiction in general.
