I think it is a fun book, but the audience are poker players (I guess) and I think they will prefer a strategy book over a book you read for fun. Or maybe there is some kind of weakness to be found in there lifestory's. But I'm not yet at the moment that I play against them, so not for me I guess, altough I think it could be interesting.

Can't wait to put my eyes on this book. I think i am not going to wait and see if it is edited in portuguese and buy it from the net. I'm interested in get to know Cunningham's life before poker. Its one of the most recent stars in the book should be similar to many of us. Student, part time worker, living in parent's house, etc. Can you imagine the day you will say: "one night my online poker account went from $10 to $300,000 because of my first place at X Tournament", hmm? It should be a great feeling... perhaps one day i feel somehing like this!
