Scotty Nguyen: "I need an author, baby!"

Tags: author, book, scotty Nguyen, story, twitter.
Posted on 05 August 2010 by "T".

Scotty Nguyen, 47, the ex-WSOP CHAMP, doesn't need any closer presentation as he has been a "regular" in the poker headlines (for many different reasons) for many, many years. There has been so much things going on in his life that many have asked themselves why he never writes a book about it?

Well, maybe we don't have to wait so much longer before there is a book in the stores. Scotty has just announced on his Twitter that he's looking for someone to write a book about his life. But, he doesn't want to write it himself and hire a so-called ghost writer - - Scotty wants one of his fans to write the book about his colorful life.

"I did a tweet about wanting to do a book, and needed a writer! I had no idea I would get so many dm's about doing it baby! Here's the deal, I want to do a book on my life, I have held off for many years on doing it, but now I'm ready baby! This is very important to me. However I would prefer to have a fan be the writer rather than a "ghost writer".  So, I am going to give my fans the opportunity for the job first baby!" writes Scotty on his twitter.

Bahhh any guy can write a book this days. Even a lame poker player. I dont think that his biography will be a interesting subject. What the f*ck he will tell us? When he bought a ferrari with some crazy cash that he earns from a poker tournament? When he bought that stupid sun glasses? i just dont like this guys who think that his life is too excited and interesting. "I'm ready baby"?!!? this guy looks like ridiculous and probably his book will looks like same. No doubt about great poker player but nothing more interesting in that man. There are a lot of great poker books that offer something interesting to fans of this game but certainly this will not be one of those. I will wait to see this great "Best seller" goes to crap Tongue

scotty is a real icon in poker.....well maybe he was but he still hase a good game to offer.
I think a book will be quite interesting actually as he normally has a lot to say, so it might make an interesting read. even if its about his life and not the poker side!

He came to America with NOTHING! Now he is quite succesfull with poker so his story to go from zero to hero is always interesting for people.

The thing most people dont see is that Scotty wont be writting this for $, its for his fans, he wil even want a fan to write it, Iv a lot of recpect for him and have had a few nice PMs from the guy, lots of time for us little guys, a lot more than can be said for most "celeb" poker players.
Im sure he has a lot to tell and I for one will be reading it baby!

You said it - his fan will be writing it Big Smile.

If i read a book, like Gus's "every hand revealed" or Doyles "50 gmost memorable hands" - then I read it with pleasure, as the author is the one who played those hands and speaks thru his experience.

Now what fun can I have reading a DRY BOOK written by some fan? I can just open wikipedia and read all about Scotty from there also.

imo - total bullshit and id rather read wikipedia based on facts rather than some observer opinion.

Theres a big diference wether you direct a movie about someone, or write autobiography book, very big difference.

I think Scotty is a massive player and I always enjoy his plays, but to come up with such idea is bs. Thatswhy I thuoght he must of been on drinking session while he wrote it to twitter.

I love scotty style of play...hahaha..horse championship was the best.....
 noonlion14/06/2012 13:07:16 GMT
I'll bet he has some stories to tell thats for sure. I've heard snippets of his earlier days and I'll bet his start in poker had some dangerous encounters.

Get it written!
