Editorial Reviews

Andreas Torbergsen
I wish I read it 8 years ago for the first time, because he hit home with me on this one. I definitely recommend it and have to say the obvious, if I had read it 8 years ago it would definitely not be the last time I opened it.
Bill Rini
It’s funny because reading through the book I kept finding myself being able to personally connect with what was being described. Not just in the poker world but in other parts of life as well. I’ll give TMGP a big thumbs up. I think it’s one of the few books that breaks new ground in the poker genre.
Jack Welch
Raises the bar so high for poker mindset books, other thinkers may not be able to clear it.
Matt Perry
This book contains advice that simply isn’t out there on forums or training sites (except at jaredtendlerpoker.com) and could well be the most important book you ever read.
Paul McGuire
I’m a tilt monkey and finished the book with the confidence knowing I can diminish tilting at the tables.

TERRIBLE PURCHASE FOR ME. I have read over 2 dozen books, maybe more. This is undeniably my least favorite. It was 170 pages that could have been boiled down to about 40 pages. The writer continued to repeat the same "principles" over and over. I read it cover to cover in the hopes that it would begin to improve at some point. He did recommend writing down some notes about players, your strategy, your emotions, etc. that is the only true benefit I gleaned from this entire book. It may be enjoyable for some, but is was an enormous waste of time for me.
