Editorial Reviews

They call high stakes poker player Annie Duke "Cook Hand Duke." They also call her super-cute: She's been featured in Playboy, People, Maxim, and other magazines. In September 2004, this red-haired mother of four toppled gender stereotypes by raking in $2 million in the World Series of Poker Tournament of Champions. This candid memoir explains how a nice Ivy League graduate from New Hampshire became the top-ranked female poker player in the world.
