Editorial Reviews


"[A] stimulating and enlightening exercise in comparing the skills and characteristics required to succeed in a game of chance with those needed for success in the games of life and business…Reading No Limit could confer a double-barreled benefit. There is a high probability that it will improve one’s luck in business, and the odds are even greater that it will make one a better poker player.” Cecil Johnson, nationally syndicated reviewer

Book Description

Poker is tightly woven into the fabric of American culture. Phrases like “ace in the hole,” “calling a bluff,” “up the ante,” and “when the chips are down” are all part of everyday speech. The game is played by hundred of thousands of people online 24 hours a day and shows like Celebrity Poker Showdown have given this hobby even more far-reaching exposure. Texas Hold ‘em is considered the best-known, most-played variety of the game. As many executives like Bill Gates have discovered, winning at poker has more in common with winning in business than meets the eye. Now, everyone who wants to make more money and succeed in business can use these cunning strategies to their full advantage—at the card table and at the conference table.

Following on the popularity of his bestseller The Art of War for Executives, author Donald G. Krause, along with co-author Jeff Carter, reveals practical advice for outmaneuvering opponents and achieving success, effectively transferring tactics for winning at Texas Hold ‘em to every competitive arena. Readers will discover how to:

Develop the characteristics needed to win—including confidence, patience, and logic • Master no-limit tactics like deception, discipline, and observation • Overcome the causes of failure that can trip up any player • Use strategies like reading the table, bluffing, spotting bluffs, and finding and exploiting small edges

Useful, entertaining, and shrewd, this is the only book that shows readers how to use Hold 'em poker to beat the competition, no matter the odds.

Format: Hardcover
Everyone wants to be a winner but not all possess and nurture the skills necessary to win. This book is not about a one time, quick fix for success or the bluff that gets you the promotion or project you've had your eye on. It is about applying the skills addressed by Donald Krause and Jeff Carter to your everyday life in order to know yourself, know and understand the players in the game you play and increase your odds. It is about striving to be the winner, cultivating the attributes of greatness from within, and learning from failure-yours and those of others- to not just win the big pot but all those little ones that make us get up everyday and pursue our aspirations.

Once you pick up No Limit and start turning the pages, it will not be easy to put down. This book is extremely easy to read and more importantly, apply. Krause and Carter's clever use of acronyms and overall structure make the content very easy to pick up and maintain. After reading this book, I've been able to increase my level of performance at work through applying the No Limit strategies.

Poker, business, and life require a strategic decision making approach that positions you for the best possible chance for success. This book will help you enhance, transport and modify your Friday night poker methodology into your professional & personal relationships creating a competitive advantage over your competitors.

Format: Hardcover
This book is not for the faint of heart. No Limit puts it out there for the reader. Millions will read this but few will have the will to act and make an impact on their lives.

The concepts described in No Limit are critical to success when the stakes are high. This is about the realities of business in today's hypercompetitive environment. .

Donald Krause and Jeff Carter combine to provide a unique and powerful set of tools that can dramatically increase one's ability to influence and lead. They seem to combine game theory, psychoanalysis and various negotiation models into an innovative analogous format that has yet to be documented.

Any game players who know Texas Hold 'em well and are interested in business concepts, as well as business libraries, will find here a fine opportunity for success and strategic planning.
