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.
