Amazing stories by one of the greatest of all time

This book is full of fascinating stories by one of the most important poker players of all time. He is candid and honest with his experiences in the world of gambling and poker. There are many great lessons to be learned here for all types of people even non gamblers. The narration is a solid 10/10, I think maybe only Morrgan Freeman has a better voice. I can't reccomended this book highly enough. I will be revisiting Life's A Gamble many more times.
