   diagrams and tables cut off and ubusable
Unfortunately, you can not see some of the diagrams and tables. Otherwise, a good book.
   Kindle Edition Incorrectly Formatted (as usual)
I hate the kindle when you reach a page containing graphics. In the case of this book, you get graphics that show only the left player cards, the right player is truncated on the first card. Amazon will fix your display technology or give up. Achieved almost the same price for the paperback version as the kindle version would call for a better experience than this.
   Great read ...
Great book for beginners or the long-time player who wants to beat his friends.
   Great book, heed its lessons!
I read this book before going to vegas to play hold 'em. If I had paid more attention to this book, I would have been better. One lesson -- be patient. Folding cards, 2) Unless you're a pro, don 't sit with a pro at a table ; you'll be bullied off the table. A great book, so. Follow the basic advice for when to hold or fold and the importance of your position at the table relative to the dealer's chip and the two blinds and you 'll do much better. But be prepared to sit with at least $300 and be patient ; you may be there for awhile.
   The book produces results!
This I bought for my husband. The more he reads and studies it, the more it improves his game.
   Blank Pages
There are some pages at the beginning of the book that are blank or have partially missing or faded text. This was disappointing.
   Poker night coach
I bought him this book to get him up to speed with the poker night gang he finds intimidating, but enjoys. He is very happy with this book, it clearly explains game rules as well as strategy in a fun way.
   Advice was not helpful.
When I tried to follow their advice, it did not work out at all.
