    Collection of Stories from Poker Legend

    This is a collection of poker columns written by poker legend Doyle Brunson, previously published as According to Doyle in the 1980s, and now reprinted in order to cash in on the poker craze, most likely. Each column has a specific theme, and a lesson to be learned, although much of the advice is extremely basic. Doyle's folksy tone seems forced in many cases, and I wouldn't be surprised to learn that many of the tales are fictitious or exaggerated 'and probably ghost-written as well'. Even as a collection of stories, this is a pretty weak effort and will likely be most appreciated by those who are fans of Brunson. If you are looking for solid intermediate poker advice, look elsewhere.

    Great Read

    This book is a good read if you are a beginner poker player. This book has a lot of good poker stories that are very entertaining. The book also has a little advice, but very basic tips. I would recommend this book to any beginner, and someone who wants to read about a few good poker stories Doyle has experienced throughout his younger rounding days

    Great Read

    ¿Poker Wisdom of a Champion¿ is one of the best poker books ever written. This is not your average poker book that will give you strategies to win a world championship. It is a book filled with true anecdotes from the life of Doyle Brunson, one of the greatest poker players that ever lived. I am not a fast reader and I personally read this book in two sittings. It is a very easy read and once you pick it up you will not be able to put it down until you have read it cover to cover. Even if you are some one who is interested in trying to learn the game of poker I would still recommend reading this book. Doyle Brunson has many fascinating stories that are very informative to the beginner and average poker player. Do not think that if you do not understand poker very well that you will not like the story because that is not true at all. Poker terms that you might not understand are listed in the back of the book to help beginners. This book also has great stories that are not just about poker. Each story has a lesson that can be learned, not only in the game of poker but in life as well. Doyle Brunson¿s stories really teach you how to be a better person at the table and in life. One thing you must remember is that Doyle Brunson is a professional poker player and not a professional writer. There are not any grammatical errors in the book, but it is not a literary masterpiece that will be put in a category with Romeo and Juliet. Despite this it remains a must read for anyone interested in poker or just looking for a good quick read.

    Awesome

    Read it in Three days. As a beginning poker player, I found the stories to be very informative, let alone funny.

    VERY SOLID READING

    This book does not contain much strategic advice, but it does contain several entertaining stories from probably the greatest poker player ever. Each story is well told with some sort of moral that gives subtle hints not only about playing the game of poker, but advice on what to do and what not to do while at or away from the table. This book is worth its low price. It's a solid read.
