Editorial Reviews

Review

Mike had vision and saw the future of poker 25 years ago. He is a bridge to poker's fascinating history and has a knack for telling these great tales that will keep you entertained. Reading Life's a Gamble is no gamble. Every story in the book is worth the price of the book." Daniel Negreanu (Poker Ambassador & member of the Poker Hall of Fame) -- Daniel Negreanu

Mike Sexton had a vision for poker that no one else had. And he didn't just talk about it, he made it happen. He created two mega events in poker (the TOC and PartyPoker Million), saw the potential in sponsorship, online poker, and poker on television. I was one of the few who knew he had it right. Life's a Gamble gives you an historical look at poker and how and why the 'poker explosion' took place - and the stories are great -- Phil Hellmuth

I gave Mike Sexton a key to the city ('99) when he brought so many visitors to Las Vegas for his Tournament of Champions of Poker. He should get another one for Life's a Gamble. -- Oscar Goodman, Las Vegas Mayor 1999-2011

In my position as publisher of Card Player magazine, hiring Mike Sexton was one of the best moves I ever made. Mike has been a great poker ambassador for more than 25 years. Life's a Gamble provides insight into the role he played in creating the 'poker explosion'. It is also the most entertaining read I've had in a long time. I couldn't put it down! I'm sure you will love it, too. -- Linda Johnson, First Lady of Poker and member of Poker Hall of Fame

Mike has hit a home run with this book. It's not a "how to" book, but if you like poker, golf, or gambling stories, then you'll love Life's a Gamble -- Doyle Brunson, Godfather of Poker

The legendary Chip Reese was the Gentleman of Poker. With his untimely death the mantle naturally passed to Mike Sexton. When I got into the poker "craze," Mike treated me like he treats everyone, with grace and care and charm. Life's a Gamble confirms what we in the poker world all know: Mike Sexton is a great poker player, a stalwart friend, and a raconteur up there with the best. Don't make me mad! Read this book... -- James Woods, Actor and poker enthusiast

Mike Sexton has been poker's preeminent ambassador since the 90's, with his creativity and vision always on display. Mike played and continues to play a critical role in the creation and growth of the World Poker Tour. Life's a Gamble tells the fascinating story of Mike's life -- how he got into poker, the passion he has for the game … and how he has worked tirelessly to bring the game of poker to the forefront, making sure it finally got and continues to get the respect it deserves." -- Steve Lipscomb, Founder of WPT

Life's a Gamble brings back a lot of fond memories for me. I loved it and I'm betting you will too. -- Jack Binion, casino owner & Founder of the WSOP

If you didn't already realize the role Mike Sexton has played in the growth of the poker industry, you will when you read Life's a Gamble. Mike's life story is the history of the game itself. This book isn't a gamble at all. It's a lock. For any poker player/gambler, this book is a must read. -- Nolan Dalla, Writer/Poker historian

Mike Sexton was well ahead of everyone else when it came to recognizing the future of poker. He went from poker player to one of the most successful people in the poker industry. He played a key role in the development and growth of online poker (PartyPoker) and televised poker (World Poker Tour). Life's a Gamble gives you an inside look to all that plus many entertaining stories on some of the most infamous figures in poker. -- Lyle Berman, Member of Poker Hall of Fame

He is the commentator of the World Poker Tour, alongside Vince Van Patten, and spokesman for PartyPoker.com. He has written for Card Player Magazine and the Gambling Times. In 2009 he has been inducted into Poker Hall of Fame - the greatest honor in poker
