You likely know Mike Sexton from his enthusiastic commentary on the world poker tour, the televised poker show that changed poker forever and helped ignite the poker boom.
Before listening to his narration of his own memoir, that's all I knew about the author. I now know far more, and in as entertaining a manner as it's possible to learn about someone's fascinating life.
This book is not only about Mike; it is filled with stories of many of the legendary gambling names of the last two generations. I heard stories here I had heard nowhere else. While I would never want to live those stories, they were fascinating to learn.

Any additional comments?
I have long been searching for a poker book that isn't concerned with strategy, something that I can listen to casually and will spark my interest in the game. This book is exactly that. Mike Sexton details his career in poker, golf and sports gambling with numerous anecdotes featuring some names you'll recognise and some you'll want to know more about.
If I have one criticism it is that for some reason Sexton repeats quotes and smaller details of anecdotes as though he hasn't previously told you the exact same thing earlier in the book.
Overall it is a great read, by a very interesting individual and the self-narration brings an additional quality to the book.
If you like poker and gambling stories you will love this book. Listening to Mike Sexton do the audio version is a must. Just a brilliant listen *****
