Swim with the Sharks! Know your game well enough to survive with seasoned players.
I have found that learning new card games can be simple or taxing depending on from whom you are learning. Occasionally, some games are just too difficult to try to absorb under fire in the heat of play. Hoyle's Modern Encyclopedia of Card Games by Walter B. Gibson gave me the rules of a card game I had been struggling with during an annual outing for the last three years. The rules were laid out succinctly allowing me to come-up-to-speed quickly without a sense of being overwhelmed. For the first time in three years, I felt I had a decent grasp of the game.
Also, I was impressed with the content as there are approximately 400 card games and their variations explained in the same terse manner. If you are like me and have friends from different places with each having their own favorite game, then this book will definitely get you into the game and make it fun rather than arduous.
