Cowboys Full: The Story of Poker Audio Book
This is the 6-CD audio book of the bestselling book of the same name. It is currently the definitive history and evolution of the game of Poker. It further tries to explain how Poker and the American way of life are intertwined.
The ways we all do battle and business are echoed by poker tactics: cheating and thwarting cheaters, leveraging uncertainty, bluffing and sussing out bluffers, managing risk and reward. Cowboys Full shows how what was once accurately called the cheater's game has become a mostly honest contest of cunning, mathematical precision, and luck. It explains how poker, formerly dominated by cardsharps, is now the most popular card game in Europe, East Asia, Australia, South America, and cyberspace, as well as on television.
Released by Macmillan Audio in 2009. Abridged on 6 compact discs. Read by Oliver Wyman.
