Synopsis: Both an autobiography and a poker-playing manual which seeks to expose the cynical reality behind the "American Dream". Yardley describes many poker games and characters who include railroad men, travelling salesmen, speculators, drunks and no-hopers.

About the Author: Herbert O. Yardler was born on April 13, 1889 in Worthington, Indiana. His father was the station master and telegraph operator for the railroad and from this he learned the telegraph code. Yardley founded and led the cryptographic organization the Black Chamber. Under Yardley, the cryptanalysts of The American Black Chamber broke Japanese diplomatic codes and were able to furnish American negotiators with significant information during the Washington Naval Conference of 1921-1922. He wrote The American Black Chamber (1931) about his experiences there. He later helped the Nationalists in China (1938–1940) to break Japanese codes. Following his work in China, Yardley worked briefly for the Canadian government, helping it set up a cryptological section (Examination Unit) of the National Research Council of Canada from June to December 1941. Ian Fleming, author of the famous James Bond Series including “From Russia with Love”, was drawn to Herbert O. Yardley not least for gaming and high living, but as an icon in U.S. Intelligence. Herbert O. Yardley died on August 7, 1958, shortly after this book was published. In 1999, he was given a place in the National Security Agency Hall of Honor. He is buried at Arlington National Cemetery, Grave 429-1 of Section 30. Yardley is a member of the Military Intelligence Hall of Fame. The National Cryptologic Museum's library has 16 boxes of Yardley's personal files.
