I write police promotional textbook exams and assessments for a living [...]. I'm always seeking out new and cutting edge books in the fields of police supervision, management and leadership.

So, I was very pleasantly surprised after I finished reading this unique leadership book. It presents an impressive amount of information on leadership in a fun and interesting format - with liberal use of relevant and humorous quotes, experiences and analogies. Your retention of the material will be extremely high because of the author's unique writing style and the attention-grabbing format. Both authors are highly qualified and experienced to present this material - but that's not the primary reason you should consider this book. If you are in law enforcement, entering law enforcement or looking to advance your law enforcement career, this book not only covers the basic leadrship experience in a way that is lively and interesting, it makes you relate to and almost experience the hardcore, daily struggle all law enforcement supervisors and managers have with how to select, train and "grow" quality law enforcement personnel.

It took a lot of guts to write a leadership book in such a unique format. And guts is what you'll need in Poker .. and in Leadership ... and this book, if nothing else, will make you see how you can embody these leadership skills.

Wow...what a great book. As a consultant for career development and promotion, I read all the leadership materials I can get my hands on. The problem is, much of it is disappointing. It's too long; too theoretical; too convoluted; or just plain boring. Harvey & Foster created a leadership encyclopedia of sorts that is packed with the essentials of leadership. This book has all the basics: Delegation, Decision Making, Teamwork, and many more, but it also has valuable details on important elements of leadership that other books often overlook: Consistency (important), Accountability (one of the biggest problems with new generation employees), and How to fail. This book is well written and detailed, but concise in that it won't overwhelm the reader. It weaves the information through stories, definitions that are right on the money, great quotes, simple diagrams, and nice-to-know parallel information. This book serves as a great resource and will always be at an arm's reach for years to come.

I've never played a game of poker but the title of the book intrigued me to read it. I was amazed at how the author's educated their readers in this book by using poker scenarios to point out what it takes to be a great leader. The author's work is about leadership and it's very thorough. They write a lot of case and point scenarios to express the subjects pertaining to leadership.
I liked how each chapter had a poker card listed and underneath it the subject of the chapter was written with a word or a few words that let the reader know what the chapter was going to be about.
If your looking for clear, thorough, descriptive education regarding leadership, I highly recommend that you read, Leadership, Texas Hold'em Style.

Leadership: Texas Hold EM' Style is has excellent quotes, humor and what it means to be a leader. The best book on leadership I have read. The theories mentioned in the book is based on real world views and easy to understand how to apply the theories and ideas in your job. This book can be used in any organization.

I actually wrote a paper for a class and used this book as a reference and my professor enjoyed the ideass and bought the book to read for ideas to use for the management class next time.

I love the analagy to poker that is used. I love the chapters on teamwork, Morale, organization, change, and importance of being an excellent leader to follow. This book changes the way you look at leadership but also fun to read. There is an interactive website that is a great companion to the book. This book will be hard to top in leadership. I hope it this book receives an award for it's great information and writing.

I hope to see a sequel to this book out from Andrew Harvey
and Raymond E. Foster.

This is an excellent guide for those who are entering the world of business, for the old timers, and for those whose experiences have left them cold or dealt them a harsh hand or two. The premise, working within the hand, aka circumstances, with which you have been dealt, is practical and realistic. The depth of experience and varied approaches to resolution are coupled with a tight and interesting layout for easy reading, referral and recall. This is one for most libraries and the authors are to be commended for offering a distinctly different approach to a very old issue, effective leadership. These are two men with a wealth of experience and a penchant for research. I've got a Kindle edition running on my iPad. It's a convenient way to refresh a concept or two as needed. I'm not a great one for posting reviews, but this work certainly warrants a top rating and recommendation.

This is a really nice book with practical examples of leadership issues, and different options for resolving the situations. Written by a respected Law Enforcement college textbook author who is a retired LAPD officer, and his co-writer, the book is not just for officers. The advice can apply to many situations of leadership in all walks of life. Nice, short chapters make for easy reading. You can read a little and let the rest wait for when you're ready to pick up the book, cherry-pick subjects through chapters or ... if you're really into leadership, maybe you'd read the whole thing ( maybe ) .
