There is very little concrete poker playing advice in this book, as itís more of a memoir. Annie is a fascinating person from a fascinating family, and this book is highly entertaining read about a very colorful character.

Poker Book Review “Big Deal” by Anthony Holden is more of a novel than a "how to" book about poker. In it, he describes his year of professional poker playing, though his skill level is far from that of a true pro. He is best known as a writer, with poker playing being a passionate hobby, and he wanted to find out what it was like to live the life of a professional poker player. He traveled the world, playing in numerous tournaments, and meeting many colorful characters, and gives us a very entertaining book filled with his experiences. You wonít learn about how to play poker from this book, but you will definitely enjoy the stories Mr. Holden spins.

Poker Book Review “Caro's Book of Poker Tells” by Mike Caro is just what the title says; a book about Poker Tells. If you donít know what a tell is, you should probably pick this book up right away. But for this review: a ďtellĒ is an movement or sound that might give away some information about how good or bad the playerís hand is. This book goes through the tells in 4 sections, called: "Tells From Those Who Are Unaware", "Tells From Actors", "Some General Tells", and "The Sounds of Tells". A very important book for those interested in playing live poker for serious money, but of no help to those wanting to play online for obvious reasons.
