Publisher's Summary

Patience and aggression are key elements of a successful poker strategy, but also, as this innovative and accessible guide reveals, to a successful leadership strategy in business decisions. Acclaimed poker instructor Charles Swayne presents down-to-earth career advice using a language that makes the valuable guidance both relatable and understandable - the language of poker. The logic-based viewpoint built upon proven strategies will be a welcome relief to individuals who have been turned off by self-help books that use empty metaphors and promises and are looking to give their professional circumstances a boost or improve their daily corporate interactions. In poker and in business there are written rules - and unwritten ones as well. Offering such insight as considering the perspectives of others during a negotiation in the same manner as reading hands and players, and understanding the stakes and accepting financial limitations in the mindset of raising a bet, this business success guide will inspire confidence and purpose in both the boardroom and at the card table.

Disappointing

I had great hopes for this audiobook, but was very disappointed. It read like a 4 hour series of statements and quotes with very little connecting thought or development of ideas.

I would not have thought that it would be possible to be both over-the-top AND monotone simultaneously, but I was wrong.
