Conclusion:

When I heard Johnny Chan was releasing a poker book my first reaction was "oh great another horrible poker book with the same information to just make money." To my surprise though Johnny has really put a lot of effort and work into this book. It's not just another poker book and actually has gone beyond being anything but just another poker book. The quality of the book is amazing, it's truly one of a kind, the book is printed on quality and in color. Johnny also doesn't bring a book with the same old information, yes the first few chapters cover the basics of poker but after that it really picks up the pace and goes in depth about all the different poker games and gives you actual insight and tips that Johnny uses himself. I highly recommend this book to any level poker player as it is one of the top books out there.
