    this rules so hard! poker story telling right from the horses mouth!

    Just read Deal Me In and im pumped. If you ever wanted to know the personal stories of the world's top poker players this book is for you.

    The chapters were all co-written by the players themselves which makes this book a one-of-a-kind selection in the poker world. I guess the main caveat would be since the chapters were co written by the players there are some marginal spots in the writing. given that however the book wouldnt be nearly as cool if it had been completely rewritten by the authors.

    poker needs more books like this, its not all about strategy.
