Poker Wizards

"To become a poker wizard, you don't need to be athletic or born with a silver spoon in your mouth. The cards don't care if you're black or white, male or female, young or old, rich or poor, because poker is one of the world's great equalizers. Surprisingly, lots of people just rely on luck and don't make any effort to learn how to play correctly. When you know what you are doing and can bring a bit of wizardry to the game, you have a tremendous advantage over most of your opponents."

Poker Wizards is a compilation of interviews with several of the world's most accomplished poker players:
Warwick Dunnet organized the interviews, each about 20 to 30 pages, around key subjects like psychology and tournament strategy and "the makings of a poker wizard. He provides a summary chapter at the end of the book.

The "wizards" all agree on the importance of discipline, study, and hours of practice as the keys to improving one's game. There are no magical tricks or subversive systems at work in any of these players' approach, and none offer a comprehensive set of guidelines. Instead, the book is filled with brief nuggets of "wizdom," as Dunnet calls them.

Best for players in no-limit hold'em tournaments, this book also includes some insights into limit hold'em and cash games, and general advice about poker in general.
