Where else but at the poker table can you discover all in one place the principles of finance (money management, risk and reward); mathematics (probability and odds); sociology (getting along with disparate, sometimes odious, personalities for the good of the game); literature (playing by the book); and, above all, psychology (in which the perceptive, intuitive, and observant student of human nature will usually be materially rewarded). Poker As Life is a primer for success. If you lie but never cheat, play the hand you’re dealt, and make your own luck, then you’ll never go bust.
As a bonus, there are dozens of entertaining and edifying life lessons provided by poker pros and other famous folk.
