this one is pretty spot on:
"If you're looking for a safe, politically correct poker novel, stay far away from this, because it's raw, real, no apologies. It seems the author didn't try to please his readers, instead, he wrote what he wanted, and out came easilly the best poker novel to date, probably ever. Strong and defiant."
it reminded me a lot of Jesse May's book. it certainly is plumbing the degen depths of addiction, but is compelling enough to want to read. by the end i was racing to see the end results.
i was actually re-reading it last night. so i think it has some second time around appeal too.
