    Pretty basic. There is some good information if you can get past the author patting himself on the back.

    Grade: B+ Everyone can agree that Phil Helmuth is a good poker player. Thus his style of poker playing is good and requires a book. What you will find in this book is a good beginner poker lesson that will teach you a lot of helpful techniques/theories on how to improve your poker game. I gave this book a B+ because many poker books out there today, suck ass, waste paper and your time. After reading some books I find that the information they have given me doesn't add anything to my game, and I don't visible see a change in my play/results. Helmuth book however will add to your game, and if you practice some of his techniques he gives you, your game will get better and you will see some results. The only complaint I have about Helmuth's book is that the goal of the book seems to be to make the reader into a mini-Helmuth player,even though he knows that everyone has their own poker style. I'd say that his book is second best (on poker information) only to Doyle Brunson Super sytem. Which is the best. Sorry Phil, until Brunson is gone you'll always be number 2 in my book.

    If you're into poker, this book is great for learning how to go from decent to really good. Some aspects of it - like the use of "animal personalities" I thought were kind of over-simplified and over-done for dramatic effect, but the strategies are pretty easy to understand (although it would take a long time to consistently use them well) and it lets you consider many aspects of the game in a new light. If you're not playing poker consistently, you're probably not going to be very good no matter what you're reading, but this book took my skills at Omaha from "terrible" to "quite good" and in NL Texas Hold Em from "decent" to "very good".It is very well-written and not overly complicated, which I appreciated. It also didn't require an in-depth aptitude for probability and number-crunching, which I quite appreciated since I was an English major in college and I'm terrible at math.

    This is the first poker book I've ever read so I don't know how it compares to the others that are out there. My mom found an autographed copy at a garage sale! How random is that? Anyway, I consider myself to be a pretty savvy poker player so I was curious what I would learn. At the end of the day, I didn't really learn much. There were a lot of "hand scenarios" with pot odds and player tendencies, but those can only help you to a point. So much of poker is the "feel" you get from your opponents when you're sitting around the table, at least it is for me because I don't play online. I guess I did learn more about hand percentages and pot odds, which is helpful, but at the end of the day it's about the mental game and you can't get that from a book in my opinion.

    This book was essentially to curbing my strategy in different poker environments (live or on the internet). It helped me learn to count outs. It helped me learn table position and calculating pot odds at all moments. If you can manage your money while making high percentage risks, you will have success.The info on Omaha was a huge boost to my game also. I also learned what kind of player I am when other "Lions" see me at the table. I have learned how to change styles mid-Tournaments to my benefit.A great read.

    While the poker brat is tough to endure on television, his book offers insider information to the poker world. Easy to understand and plenty of examples of how to react and perform in certain situations.

    Laughably bad. This was one of the first poker books I read and it's a wonder I survived the early, low stakes, games at the Palms. The discussion often lacks specific game context and leaves you trying to figure out what animals have to do with playing poker.

    When I first started playing poker, this book helped me to understand a lot about the game.

    First poker book I read which was appropriate b/c after reading this book, you have truly advanced your game to a higher level for a beginner. Good starting point.

    I feel like Phil did not share any of himself in this book. Just the basics to make a few bucks total trash.

    Colorful animal analogies but hardly the best poker book I've read.

    Superfluous, pompous and overrated - much like Hellmuth.

    An ok book, doesn't feel like a lot of time went into writing it. Unlikely you'll learn much from this book, because it focuses too much on specific hand examples.
