Take Me to the River: A Wayward and Perilous Journey to the World Series of Poker

Take Me to the River: A Wayward and Perilous Journey to the World Series of Poker - Peter Alson I love reading poker memoirs. It doesn't matter to me whether the author wins or loses - or even if the memoir is completely true - I just love reading about the gambler's life. And Alson's account is one of the better ones I've read. It doesn't hurt that Alson is coauthor of the Stu Unger biography One of a Kind - and knows his way around a poker book. He doesn't get so caught up in the actual game that the book is nothing but dissection of hand after hand, but includes enough information about what happens away from the table to make you feel that you're really getting to know him.
