Thinking in Bets by Annie Duke

Annie Duke has a new Book in 2018.

It is not a poker book but draws on examples from poker.

"Annie Duke, a former World Series of Poker champion turned business consultant, draws on examples from business, sports, politics, and (of course) poker to share tools anyone can use to embrace uncertainty and make better decisions."

It was recommended to me on Audible. I was surprised not to find at least one thread on it.

Needless to say, Ms. Duke does not have a very good reputation around here, but if it weren't written by her by just listening to the sample, I would have probably pulled the trigger on it. I read a ton, so it's not unusual for me to grab something that looks interesting even if it ends up sucking.

Has anyone read this book?

Does she have any credibility to write this type of book after all the fails she has been involved with?

Interesting book.. I am always open to new ideas on how to improve our ability to make decisions so I may just read this.

I think Annie does have credibility for this book - like her or not, she has achieved success at the highest levels of poker. She is known to be a very deep thinker in both poker and life - yeah, I'd read the book.

I notice that she is now branching off to business consulting. In my opinion, I am not sure if she is credible for that. I don't know how much business experience she actually has with respect to starting and building companies or management leadership.

Sounds like you work for her PR company. You must not realize that just about every company that she has worked for/with has gone out of business, primarily due to mis-management, with her actions contributing to the demise.
