Good poker book

Although much of this book is about personal experiences of Barry's, it is a very interesting book which is very helpful. I have listened to it several times, and pick up something new each time.

One disadvantage to this as an audiobook is that you lose all of the illustrations. I looked at the book in the bookstore, and it is much easier to follow the poker instruction in print than in audio format.

I highly recommend this book, but you may want to consider buying the print version.
