Customer Review

on 8 May 2007
This is a great book for anyone interested in Poker or gambling or just wanting to read a true story of a remarkable man. Slim is best known due to the world wide boom in poker although he cut his cloth as a pool hustler and proposition betting, trying to ensure the odds are stacked in his favour at all times.

This is a book you will read in one sitting and be sat wishing for more.

The stories he comes up with are sometimes beyond belief but you can actually picture the scene very clearly and seem entirely appropriate for the times. Details about his days on the road with Doyle Brunson and the like make you wish you could spend an hour with him just to hear the stories first hand.

Some of the betting propositions he was involved in were absolutely fascinating and even more fascinating were the steps he took to get the odds in his favour!!

The book is honest about the scrapes he got into in his early days and whilst he undoubtedly has a an element of literary license to embellish some elements you feel as though everything is absolutely 100% true and even if it isn't it is that interesting that it doesn't matter anyway!!

You will not be disappointed.
