Dutch Boyd takes us on a wild roller coaster ride of ups and downs and twists and turns, interweaving his experiences in and out poker into a deeply personal, at times provocative reflection of living in the fast lane. Funny, sad, riveting, thought-provoking, and always on edge, this book is an amusement park of emotions.
I read it and I loved it. I was impressed by Dutch Boyd’s story, his numerous perspectives on modern poker, his candid descriptions of his own deeds and shortcomings, his unapologetic analysis of the game’s current controversies, and his ability to survive the roughest times and share them with such intelligence and honesty. This book deserves to be an instant classic about poker in the 21st century.
Impossible to put down, a must-read guide to surviving the brutal world of poker. It is truly a game-changer.
Dutch’s personal story is fascinating — a refreshingly unique perspective through the poker boom and beyond — there are gems of wisdom here that apply to the game itself but resonate on a broader scale.
A very compelling narrative of one of poker’s most interesting and dynamic personalities.
I haven’t had time to look at it. I’m sorry. Quote something for me and I’ll stand by it.
Dutch’s book is an excellent read that really gives an inside look at the times that were! Really made me remember an awesome period of my life, I highly recommend this book!
