It is the only book I recommend. My buddy Tony Gregg (The 2013 One Drop Champion) told me I should read The Mental Game of Poker on audio book, I downloaded it in the middle of June 2012 and listened to it every night over the course of the WSOP. I couldn't endorse it more, I've done interviews where people ask me what book I would recommend and that is the only book I would recommend. I couldn't agree with the philosophy of the book more. ~2012 WSOP Main Event Champion Greg Merson --The Mental Game of Poker Podcast

My mental game used to be terrible, I used to tilt, I used to go insane, and this is going to be a plug for Jared Tendler, he wrote a book called The Mental Game of Poker and I don t tilt any more. ~Justin Oliver, 2013 WSOP bracelet winner (Immediately after winning the $2,500 Four Max event.) --Pokernews.com
The best poker book ever written, and it's not even close. ~Lex Veldhuis, PokerStars Team Pro --Twitter

I was tilting so badly before I read this that my recent SNG record was about 0/15. 15 games. No wins.
I read the book in about a week.
My record after I finished it was about 11/15.
It has leveled off a bit since, of course, (that's variance) but there isn't a day that goes by where I don't think of some good idea for life and/or poker that this book brought to my attention.
Thank you, Jared Tendler!
