From the Publisher:

Winning at poker is not just analysis, clever tactics, nor even inspired bluff—although Total Poker examines all these in depth. Ultimately, luck works out the same for everyone—there really is no such thing as “good cards” or “bad cards.” As the author maintains, winning is a “psychological decision” made by each player. Packed with stories about the application of poker to life in general (including a fascinating analysis of the Kennedy–Khrushchev diplomatic poker game that ensued during the Cuban missile crisis), Total Poker also looks at the game’s history, culture, techniques, strategies, rules, and probabilities. An outstanding work by David Spanier, author of Easy Money, Little Book of Poker, The Hand I Played, and Welcome to the Pleasuredome.

Review:

The classic book on poker: its history, culture, technique, and strategy.
